2014 TRANS* PRIDE MARCH
The Trans March is one of the largest events of the trans communities in the GTA. Since it began in 2009, the Trans March has sought to provide a place for trans identified people to rally, to stand up and come together in solidarity. It's a grass-roots community focused event, providing safe space for trans people.
All trans identified people, their friends and allies are welcome to march. Trans women of colour and people with different abilities are encouraged to lead the march and set the pace for everyone else.

*WHO TRANS PRIDE REPRESENTS
Transgendered and Transsexual persons, people who were assigned one sex but who identify as the opposite sex. Some transition from one sex to the other through medical treatment and possibly surgery, while others simply live their life as the opposite sex. Trans people have existed throughout human history and there's evidence of them found in nearly every ancient culture on Earth.
We also support Gender Queer / Gender Independent persons, people who may identify as both genders, or neither, or whose gender identity is fluid.
Intersex persons were both with ambiguous genitalia, or a set of both male and female genitals. As biology doesn't determine identity, intersex people may identify as one, the other or both genders, or somewhere in between.
Two-Spirit is a term describing someone who fulfills mixed gender roles. The term originates among Canada's Aboriginal peoples.
Trans Pride supports all these ways of being, and seeks to provide a safe place for anyone whose gender or sexuality doesn't fit within the narrow definitions society has given us. Gender is complicated, and it will always be so, but we seek to support those who are finding their way through.
