Saturday June 10- Dyke March
CALLING ALL DYKES!! ALL femmes, butches, queers, studs, AGs, lesbian feminists, tops, bottoms, tomboys, womEn of color, bi-dykes, boi-dykes, UHaul-ers, Potluck-ers, bulldaggers, trans folks of all flavors, labia-lovin' ladies... you get the idea. The Philly Dyke March is not a parade. It's a march, a protest, a movement, and they do NOT get a permit to march the streets. 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 their community. Rally: 2pm at Kahn Park at 11th and Pine streets March: Step off promptly at 4pm . Unfortunately the Mistress will not be present to pass out Home Depot gift cards.
