NYC DYKE MARCH | JUNE 29RD, 2013 | 5PM KICKOFF AT BRYANT PARK - 42ND STREET AND 5TH AVE, MANHATTAN.
It’s the time to hit the streets! Make some noise. Be visible. Be heard. Demonstrate, agitate, liberate! 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 (check out the Lesbian Avengers handbook for what marshals do during a march).
The Dyke March is a protest march, not a parade — we don’t ask for a permit, because we have the right to protest. 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 our communities and to protest against ongoing discrimination, harassment, and anti-LBTQ violence in schools, on the job, in our families, and on the streets.
THE NYC DYKE MARCH IS FOR DYKES AND SELF-IDENTIFIED WOMEN. SUPPORTERS, CHEER US ON!
