Here's how organizers describe this annual protest on their Facebook event page: "The Dyke and Trans March and Rally is a political action separate from the mainstream, corporatized, TD Bank presents Halifax Pride. It's not a parade. It's not a Winners ad with a fun rainbow twist. It's a demonstration that's equal parts bitter and glitter, cause honey, it gets bitter before it gets better. We're taking to the streets to demand safety, equality, and respect. We're gathering to honour our past, acknowledge our present, and push towards our future. Finally, we’re coming together to celebrate our collective resilience, beauty, and power." Walk attendees gather in front of the Central Library at 6pm, with speeches proceeding the march.
