Want to learn more about the Dyke March?|
Come to a meeting! Every other Monday from 6:30-8 pm at the LGBT Center at 208 West 13th St.
Be a Marshal |
Marshals are the dykes that help organize the action and keep other dykes safe. To learn more, come to an exciting marshal training session in June. (Check out the ACT UP marshal training for details about what marshals do at a march.) Already been trained or been a marshal before? Once you've been through our training, it's good for life. Let us know if you want to marshal again next year - we need you!
We need volunteers to help dykes in wheelchairs. If you have any accessibility needs, please contact us before the march. We'll do our best to help every dyke participate in the march.

Pictures from last year's march Dykes: it's time to hit the streets. Make some noise. Be visible. Be heard. Dissent! Disrupt! Resist!
Demonstrate, agitate, liberate at the New York City Dyke March. Bring signs, banners, drums, giant puppets, flags, hula hoops, or just be there! And if you really want to make things happen - be a marshal.
The New York City Dyke March is a protest march, not a parade -- we don't ask for a permit, because we have the right to protest. As lesbians, we recognize that we must organize amongst ourselves to fight for our rights, our safety, and for visibility. Thousands of dykes take over the streets every year in celebration of lesbians and to demonstrate that lesbians refuse to accept ongoing discrimination on the job, in schools, and in families, and harassment and anti-lesbian violence. We're marching because
As always, the Dyke March is open to all women, biological or otherwise - no sign-up or registration required. Just come out with your banners, signs, noisemakers, and beautiful dyke selves, and join in the march! Allies are encouraged to support the Dyke March by cheering us on from the sidelines. Want to know more? Read up on some Dyke March herstory.
P.S. A fellow dyke, Raven, who is one of the brains behind this march, spent a lot of time spreading awareness, including the proper way of vacuuming (Don't ask -- Raven's a neat freak but is loved by many just the same.)
