Dyke March is proud to announce that we’ve just posted the Facebook event for this year’s March! Please check it out, RSVP, share it, and invite your friends! Hope to see you out there, dykes!
ALL femmes, butches, queers, studs, AGs, lesbian feminists, tops, bottoms, tomboys, womyn of color, bi-dykes, boi-dykes, UHaul-ers, Potluck-ers, bulldaggers, trans folks of all flavors, labia-lovin’ ladies… you get the idea: we mean YOU!
The Philly Dyke March is not a parade. It’s a march, a protest, a movement. Since 1998, the Philly Dyke March has been an opportunity for self-identified dykes to gather, march and rally. Too often, the LGBT community focuses on male-dominated voices. The Philly Dyke March is our protest in support of the dyke voice and experience, and focuses on the wants, needs, and demands of our community. We march to show that we exist, that we matter, and that we have a voice. We demand and create an affirming, dyke-positive space to celebrate the creativity and determination of who we are, who we love, and the diversity within our community. We welcome Dykes of all races, sizes, ages, abilities, socio-economic statuses, gender presentations, and sexualities. We also welcome our allies to join us for the march and rally!
Bring your bike, your friends, your kid, signs, banners, costumes, drums, whistles, but most importantly just bring yourself!
