21st Annual Philly Dyke March!
June 8 @ 13:00 - 16:00 UTC-4
21st Annual Philly Dyke March! – CALLING ALL DYKES AND ALLIES!!
ALL femmes, butches, andros, queers, studs, AGs, lesbians, tops, bottoms, tomboys, womxn of color, asexual dykes, bidykes, boidykes, pandykes, UHaulers, QPOC, and transgender, intersex, gender nonconforming, gender non-binary, and genderqueer dykes of all flavors, and all of those who love and support us…you get the idea: We mean YOU!
The Philly Dyke March is not a parade. It’s a march, a protest, a movement.
***We do NOT get a permit to take the streets.***
Since 1998, the Philly Dyke March has been an opportunity for self-identified Dykes to gather, march and rally. Too often, the LGBTQ community focuses on the voices of white cismen. The Philly Dyke March is our protest in support of the Dyke voice and experience, and focuses on the wants, needs, and demands of our community.
We march to show that we exist, that we matter, and that we have a voice. We demand and create an affirming, Dyke-positive space to celebrate the creativity and determination of who we are, who we love, and the diversity within our community.
We welcome Dykes of all races, sizes, ages, abilities, socioeconomic statuses, gender presentations and identities, and sexual orientations. We also welcome our allies to join us for the march and in our rally audience! But we protect OUR stage for Dyke-identified performers and speakers ONLY!
Bring your friends, your kids, signs, banners, costumes, drums, whistles, but most importantly, just bring yourself!
NOTE CHANGE IN TIMES THIS YEAR!
Pre-March Rally: Kicking it off at 1:00 PM at Kahn Park with some incredible performers to lead us into the March
March: Step off and take to the damn streets promptly at 2:00 PM!
After The March: Return to Kahn Park, cool off with some water, and watch as Philly’s Dyke performers rock the mic for the rest of the day!
Be Visible. Be Heard. Just Be There!
