One of my favorite events of the year is the NYC Dyke March. Now in its 26th, the March began as protest, in contest to the Pride parade which traditionally centered around gay white men.
Last year, my pal Elvis and I decided to step it and get trained to marshal the March. We had a blast and decided to do it again this year.
Dykes everywhere showed their solidarity against fascism, racism, deportation, nazis, prisons... it was incredible. It’s overwhelming to see all these radical people come together, be political and have a helluva time while doing it. Yup, queer as in Abolish ICE.
