Getting ready, or waiting, for the Dyke March.  Saturday 28th June, from Allan Gardens west to Yonge St then north to Charles St.  It was a very warm and sunny day.

 

two lone photographers stand in a street that has no traffic.  Crowds are on the sidewalks on either side.  They are sitting, waiting for a parade to come past

Carlton street awaits the start of the march.

A man is wearing a rainbow flag like a cape, and he has one wrapped around his head like a headband.  He is selling large and small sized rainbow flags.  He is topless otherwise

I bought a flag.
Him: Oh, this is going to be put online?
Me: If it works.

.

Two guys are sitting on the sidewalk.  One has dyed his hair yellow and he's carrying a rainbow flag.  The other is resting his chin on his hands, and his elbows on his knees.  He has his rainbow flag draped over his head and he looks very bored.

It was a hot day and the parade was late getting started…….

A multicoloured bracelet on a wrist.  The bracelet says, Oy Vey I'm Gay.

I spoke briefly to a woman who was wearing this bracelet. One of the women she was with was wearing a sticker that said, “Eat Me, I’m Kosher” but I didn’t take a picture of it.

A good looking, very fit, man wearing just a pair of pink shorts and a pair of sandals is walking down the street.

A lacy umbrella decorated with crocheted 3D breasts in different colours, probably life sized.

A black helmet has two lines of pink fringe glued on the top it that make it look like a Mohawk hair cut.  The helmet is sitting on the seat of a black motorcycle.
