Our events are all funded by donations, if you’d like to support the Seattle Dyke March please consider making a donation using the link above or via our Venmo: @SeattleDykeMarch.
The Seattle Dyke March is committed to promoting the important efforts of other organizations and groups in our community. There is so much to care about and fight for, and we ask you to join us in our support of some important groups.
Real Rent Duwamish – https://www.realrentduwamish.org/
Real Rent calls on people who live and work in Seattle to make rent payments to the Duwamish Tribe. You can do something today to stand in solidarity with First Peoples of this land by paying Real Rent. All funds go directly to Duwamish Tribal Services (DTS) to support the revival of Duwamish culture and the vitality of the Duwamish Tribe.
Planned Parenthood – www.weareplannedparenthood.org/
As of September 1, 2021, the state of Texas has enacted a new abortion restriction limiting the ability to provide abortion care in Texas beyond ~6 weeks of pregnancy, and sometimes even earlier. Planned Parenthood is fighting this law in court, and are still providing essential services to people in Texas and across the country.

An emerging indie pop artist and spoken word poet, Grae Violett considers Seattle to be their home and influence their lyrics/sound. They like to create mind bending spoken word based off of songs they’ve written, giving a contextual, in-depth view into their mind. As a Black Queer Fem, they find that softness and emotional availability is not always accessible for people with their identities, and they hope that their art can give people the freedom to express themselves however they please.
