Dyke March- June 9th

This time a year ago I remember reading emails from the listserv and posts on the blog about dyke march. I remember being nervous and hesistant to come out and meet total strangers. I worried about fitting in, about the fact that I hadn’t really been active in Philadelphia’s queer community or had any experience organizing. All those worries went away when I came to Dyke March last year and met all these amazing individuals who made me feel welcome.

As a person who grew up yearning to see LGBTQ Asian and Pacific Islanders in the media and around me, I can personally attest to how much visibility means. If you’re reading this right now and maybe have some of the same concerns as I did, I hope you take a chance and join us!

Rally: 3pm
Step-off: 4pm

Bring family and friends.
Wear a green shirt to visibly unify yourself with hotpot!
