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
Radical Cheerleaders
Genea Gjaguar
Gabriel Morte
Frootie Flavors
Lisa Dewey
Diane Patterson
Beaver Cleaver
Gloria Nieto
Something Wicked Fire Troupe
and more…

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.
