London's first major lesbian visibility event since the Lesbian
Strength marches of the late 1980s will take place in spring
Organisers are yet to confirm an exact date for the march, which
they hope will replicate the high profile events held annually in
San Francisco and New York since the 1990s, where they kick off
local Pride weeks.
Dyke March London is an inclusive event that welcomes lesbians,
bi women, trans women, genderqueers and allies.
The event's steering group published this statement on their
"Dyke March London is about dykes. We support dyke visibility
and celebrate our love and passion for women and all dykes. Dyke
March London is for everyone: dykes, queers, bisexuals, transwomen,
genderqueers and allies. This is a grassroots, non-commercial,
anti-racist, community-centred, accessible, inclusive event: we
welcome all folk who want to support dykes to march with us."
Groups and individuals who would like to march as part of a
specific group are encouraged to contact the organisers with their
