Saturday, June 24th: Seattle Dyke March & Rally
This is it: our biggest event of the year! Join us on Saturday, June 24th for the annual Seattle Dyke March & Rally. We have an incredible line-up this year, including speakers from the ACLU National LGBTQ project and the Trevor Project, a drag king performance by Leo Mane, a musical performance by Chiku Nance, and more! The rally will also be emceed by the incredible Miss Indigo Blue!
As we announced a few weeks ago, there will be a number of changes to this year’s event. First, we will be at Volunteer Park and marching in the residential neighborhood around the park. The reason for this change is to avoid involvement with the Seattle Police Department. As such, this year’s march will also be unpermitted. If you choose to participate, please understand what it means to march unpermitted and prepare accordingly. Dykes on Bikes will also be joining us in a limited capacity for this year’s march due to restrictions around space and safety. For more information about these changes, please check out our Dyke March Update blog.
We will also be making an extremely BIG announcement at this year’s rally, so you won’t want to miss it! Bring your sunscreen, your emotional support water bottle, and all your queer friends for an afternoon of uplifting, amplifying, and celebrating queer and dyke identities!
What’s Coming the Rest of the Year?
Although the Seattle Dyke March is our pinnacle event of the year, we host events year round! For the rest of 2023, you can look forward to ongoing Open Mic nights and a new Speed Dating series beginning in July! Make sure you’re following us on Facebook, Instagram, and MeetUp so you never miss an event!
