The 2013 Trans March as part of Pride Toronto, was finally 'permitted' to march down Yonge Street, having been relegated to Church Street in past years leaving many in the community feeling sidelined by the Pride Toronto organization.
This years theme for the Trans March was "Celebration, Commemoration, Demonstration by and for the Trans Community" and there was plenty to celebrate. The march which had been relegated to march down Church Street in the past was finally 'permitted' by Pride Toronto to march down Yonge. The other two major parades over the Pride weekend, including the Dyke March and main Sunday parade, both have their routes on Yonge Street.
Participants wore the colour lavender and celebrated the honoured trans person and group, Kyle Scanlon and The Fallen, posthumously honoured and remembered through those carrying their portraits in the march.
