The annual Chicago Dyke March will take place Sat., June 25 starting at Trumbull Elementary School, which is on the corner of Ashland and Foster. It will then head east along Foster, north on Clark, and then east on Bryn Mawr until the marchers reach the lake. Participants will meet at the school at 2 p.m., the march will begin at 3 p.m., and a lakeside rally will start at 4 p.m..
According to a release, the march 'is an anti-racist, non-violent, volunteer-led grassroots event. Its goal is to bring together womyn-loving-womyn and allies across race, class, age, size, gender, ethnicity, cultures, faiths, and differing ability. We seek to honor those who came before us by continuing to build multi-cultural and inter-generational communities. We are a response to male-dominated, corporate-sponsored Pride events. The Chicago Dyke March is not a parade; it is a direct action demonstration and a celebration of dyke visibility.'
