The 22nd annual Chicago Dyke March returned to Little Village on Chicago's Southwest Side this year. Front and center was the message of the event: It was pro-Palestinian, with inclusion up front of Little Village residents and representation from the Queer, Ill and Okay group.

Attendance appeared to be similar to last year's, between 1,500 and 2,000 people marching west on 26th Street and ending on 31st Street at Piotrowski Park for a rally with speakers, music and more.

Last year, a problem arose when three lesbians with a Jewish pride flag were asked to leave, causing an outcry alleging anti-semitism by the Dyke March. This year, there did not appear to be any confrontations, but march organizers made it clear this would be a very pro-Palestinian event, and some people who attended last year stayed away from the event this time.

Chants during the march included, "No pride in occupation, no pride in deportation!," "Viva el barrio, viva La Villita!" and "Policia, la migra, la misma porqueria!"
