Since then they have learned to play instruments and be gay, and not much else.

We are finalizing our Keynote due to a last-minute change
General Mask Policies
- Keeping the March safe and accessible for ALL is one of our core values
- The risks of COVID are still not understood and we MUST make the March a safe space
- You can still catch COVID outdoors, so we ask you to mask in designated areas, on the March, and whenever you cannot social distance
On the March
- We ask that you wear a mask AT ALL TIMES while on the March
- N95, KN95, or KF94 style masks are preferred and help keep everyone safe
- Dyke Patrol will have a limited number of masks, but please bring one
On the Common
While on the Common, we're asking everyone to please mask:
- while on the grass in front of the stage
- on the pathways
- by the Merch tent & all tables
Outside of these areas, please mask where you cannot social distance
Accessibility Vehicle Mask Policies
Occupants and driver will be provided a 3M Aura mask before entering the vehicle
Occupants and driver are required to wear the provided n95 mask at all times while in the vehicle
Occupants and driver are not allowed to remove their mask for any reason due to the high risk of infection in an enclosed space
Accessibility Vehicle Mask Alternatives
We recognize some folks have masking needs that will require an alternative mask.
Requests to wear an alternative mask can be submitted by emailing, DM'ing, or otherwise reaching out to the Dyke March by 10pm EST on June 2nd.
Requests must include the brand, model id, and purchase location so that the mask can be evaluated.
Requests for alternative masking options will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
The Boston Dyke March may refuse to make exceptions for any reason, due to the high risks associated with COVID infection.
No exceptions will be made day-of due to our inability to validate alternative masks on site.
For extremely high risk individuals, we will be offering a livestream on Youtube.
Below is the approximate set-up of our activities on Boston Common. Please note the required Masking Areas
