The Chicago Dyke March Collective ( CDMC ) has announced that the 2012 and 2013 Dyke Marches will take place in the Argyle neighborhood, which houses predominantly the Vietnamese community and a number of Asian-American businesses and non-profits, according to a press release.

The decision was made as a collective after a "call for movement" was made to the greater community to "bid" for the next host neighborhood. Two proposals were submitted identifying Argyle as an ideal location for future marches.

"This is very exciting," said Liz Thomson, the activist chairperson of Chicago i2i, an LGBTI Asian/Pacific Islander community organization. "I truly believe having the Dyke March go through the heart of Uptown amongst the Pho Restaurants, the non-profits, and the retail stores will raise the visibility of what it means to be LGBTQQ and Asian American."

Dyke March Chicago had long been on the far north side; however, since 2008, the organizers have continued to move the march ( Pilsen in 2008 and 2009; the South Shore in 2010 and 2011 ) . According to the release, "the general idea for the move is to show that dykes are in all parts of Chicago and to celebrate Dyke, Queer AND Transgender resilience."

The route has not yet been determined. People interested in organizing the event should email dykemarchchicago@gmail.com .
