About

CALLING ALL DYKES AND ALLIES!! ALL femmes, butches, queers, studs, AGs, lesbians, tops, bottoms, tomboys, womyn of color, bi-dykes, boi-dykes, UHaul-ers, Potluck-ers, bulldaggers, transgender and gender non-conforming folx 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 male-dominated voices. 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, socio-economic statuses, gender presentations and identities, and sexual orientations. We also welcome our allies to join us for the march and rally!

Bring your friends, your kids, signs, banners, costumes, drums, whistles, but most importantly just bring yourself!

Rally: 3pm at Kahn Park (11th and Pine streets)
March: Step off promptly at 4pm
After march: Chill in the park and have some free water ice as Philly's Dyke performers rock the mic for the rest of the day! As always, PDM brings you electrifying speakers and performers, awesome entertainment and of course an opportunity to take over Philly's streets!

Be Visible. Be Heard. Be There!
