Allow us to draw your attention to a few events!
14 August 2012 | Montréal’s First Radical Dyke March
6:00 pm, Place Émilie-Gamelin (Berri/Ste-Catherine E)
Join hundreds of lesbians, dykes, butches, fem/mes, genderqueers, studs and trans folk who will take over Montreal’s streets for the FIRST DYKE MARCH in Québec’s history (inspired by similar initiatives in 1976 and 1983). In the midst of Pride, Divers/Cité and Pervers/Cité celebrations, we’ll march in leather boots, flip-flops, wheels of fire, sneakers, canes, Birkenstocks, and high heels. Our steps will write herstory!
We lesbians are everywhere, but all too often we are invisible or erased; even within the LGBTQ community! Fuck lesbophobia!
On August 14th we will rock Montréal. We will be fierce, naughty, strong, irresistible, brave, sexy, joyful, and enraged. Laughing in the face of a law that seeks to contain us, we’ll have patriarchy, heterosexism, and good old fashioned misogyny quaking in their boots!
16 August 2012 | Aqua Queer Prom Force
8:00 pm, Local C/D (2229, Ste-Catherine E)
Pride is nearly upon us – and with it, its usual myriad of parties, dances and events. But this year, Fierté Montréal and Project 10 teamed up to add something totally new to the roster: the first queer youth prom. Come join us, meet, dance & hang out with queer & trans youth !
The theme’s Aqua Queer Prom Force – so come in your best superhero-inspired regalia. Or in what you wish you’d worn at your prom. Or what you did wear at your prom. In short, wear whatever makes you feel fierce & comfortable !
Age range: 14-25
Price: 5-7$, but no one will be turned away
18 August 2012, Montreal’s First Official Dyke March
10:00 am gathering (11:00 am start), Champlain/Ste-Catherine E
Please join Montreal PRIDE, by marching with us in the 1st official Montreal Dyke march. Let’s celebrate the diversity of our community together!! Bring your signs, your noise makers and your attitude! Lets take our space within Pride celebrations, all the while having fun! Either in groups of 2, 10 or 100, what matters is your presence! Allies welcome!
The 1st ever Montreal Dyke march will feature the Coral Shor’s Hole-y Army, choreographed by Alexis O’Hara. The army celebrates holes of all shapes and colors and sizes on whatever gendered or genderless body they may inhabit, as hairy or shaved as they may be.
