Philly Pride is one of hundreds of LGBT Pride organizations organizing outside events to promote the visibility of the LGBT community. Despite corporate takeover hotpot! insists on existing and reclaiming space in the parade alongside other groups like hotpot! Historically, dyke marches were started as a protest to the more mainstream and patriarchal pride parades. Here are some pictures past!
