The San Francisco Dyke March is a gathering of close to 200,000 lesbians, supportive women and (mostly) gay men intended to be a precursor to the wider LGBT Pride events but its own separate celebration.
Enjoy music hosted by deejays from about 1pm until about 6pm in Dolores Park (yes, on the gay side). At 6pm proceed to the corner of 18th & Dolores (on 18th) to line up for the March and hear speakers from the Parade truck/float. Ride with Dykes, Bike with Gays, Trolley with our Elders, and March & Dance with our lovers all the way to the Castro Pink Party.
About The Dyke March
The mission of the San Francisco Dyke March is to bring the dyke community together to celebrate our unity, raise our consciousness and be visible.
Strengthening an international perspective in our community, the rally and march advocates justice for all dykes around the world. We advocate on issues against oppression, racism, sexism, homophobia, and poverty.
To mobilize our coalition we organize an annual march that takes place during the week of Pride celebration (last weekend of June). The rally/cultural event showcases our community's artists, critical thinkers and political activists.
It is one day where dykes can proclaim space, rights, visibility and respect.
The San Francisco Dyke March is for dykes. Dykes gather at the Dyke March to celebrate our love and passion for women and for ALL dykes. We celebrate our queerness in all its manifestations. We understand dyke identity to include those of us who are questioning and challenging gender constructs and the social definitions of women: transdyke, MTF, transfeminine, transmasculine, genderqueer, and gender fluid dykes. We also welcome all women who want to support dykes to march with us. Celebrate dyke diversity!
We continue to hold the Dyke March as dyke-only space. We invite our male allies to enjoy our Dolores Park rally with us, and to please support us from the sidelines during our march to the Castro.
