The first Dyke March took place in Washington DC in 1993. After a hiatus from 2008-2018, we are thrilled to be back for Dyke March’s newest iteration on June 7, 2019. Dyke Marches are community-driven, grassroots, and meant to bring together all who identify as dykes through marching as an act of visibility and protest. It is non-Pride affiliated, with no corporate sponsors, permits, or cops – our goal is to encourage activism within our community and center trans people, queers, lesbians, and other dyke identities who are often marginalized by the mainstream LGBTQ movement.
Dyke March is an inclusive community consisting of, but not limited to, black dykes, brown dykes, Latinx, Trans, Two-Spirit, Pan, Bi, Poly, Non-Binary, Disabled, Sex worker, fat, poor, young and old dykes. Our vision is a grassroots effort to raise awareness and build a stronger community among Dykes and Dyke issues in the DMV.
We believe Dyke is not a sexuality, but a political identity centered on solidarity in each other’s struggles and a belief that none of us are free until we all are. Join us.
