Since 1995, the Boston Dyke March has remained committed to offering a non-commercial, intersectional, and fundamentally grassroots alternative to Boston’s Pride celebration. We strive to elevate voices marginalized in society and even within the queer community: women/nonbinary folks, POC, trans folks, people with disabilities, etc.
The Dyke March tradition began with a 1993 demonstration by the Washington, DC Lesbian Avengers, and soon after independent Dyke Marches sprung up across the country. We are not merely a celebration, we are speaking up and fighting back to demand a better society.
Our top priority is to provide a dynamic and welcoming space for participants of all sexualities, genders, races, ages, ethnicities, sizes, economic backgrounds, and physical abilities. We strive to create a place where political and social change can be expressed and inspired.
