The 16th Annual Santa Cruz Dyke March
Saturday May 31, 2008
Rally at 3:30 pm March at 6:15 pm
At the Clock Tower downtown Santa Cruz
On North Pacific Avenue and Water Street
The Annual Santa Cruz Dyke March has been happening for 16 years on the Saturday night before Gaysbian Pride.
The purpose of Dyke March is to increase lesbian visibility and activism.
We exercise our first amendment right to gather and without corporate sponsorship.
This year’s theme:
"I Am Not A Failed Fttempt At Being You"
Our theme reflects an Anti-Assimilation Pro Queer perspective.
Santa Cruz Dyke March is no parade-
it is the practice of CIVIL RIGHTS DEMONSTRATIONS. We oppose the Gaysbian movement about obtaining Eurocentric straight privilege and challenge the power structure.
The Direct Action steps off at 6:15pm.
Featured performers are:
MC - Cheri Lovedog
Something Wicked Fire Troupe
No more male-dominated, corporate-sponsored Pride events.
Not a parade!
A direct action demonstration and a celebration of dyke visibility. Come out with your banners, signs, noise makers, and Be-you-to-the-full selves.
