The New York City Dyke March
The New York City Dyke March is a protest march, not a parade. The March is a demonstration of our First Amendment right to protest and takes place without permits or sponsors.
We recognize that we must organize among ourselves to fight for our rights, safety, and visibility. Thousands of Dykes take the streets each year in celebration of our beautiful and diverse Dyke lives, to highlight the presence of Dykes within our community, and in protest of the discrimination, harassment, and violence we face in schools, on the job, and in our communities.
All self-identified Dykes are welcome to march regardless of group or political affiliation.
The NYC Dyke March has been the inspiration for dozens of Dyke Marches, including marches in Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Johannesburg, London, Ireland, Mexico City, and Vancouver.
