New York City dyke march is one of my favorite events of the year. I was really distraught when I thought I had missed it because I was out of town for a conference. The dyke march is a protest started by dykes 27 years ago and still going strong. It happens the day before NYC Pride and there are no permits. It steps off from Bryant Park, goes down Fifth Ave and ends in Washington Square Park. On a hot day you’ll see many dykes & allies in the fountain.
Dyke March is an important part of Pride
month because Pride has become ridiculously corporate and faux inclusive. I march to make sure trans, female and gender nonconforming individuals are seen. The Lesbian Avengers are the founders of the march, which is a political statement.
