Dykes Rally and March in Santa Cruz without Sponsors or Permits
by ~Bradley (bradley [at] riseup.net)
Sunday Jun 22nd, 2008 4:51 PM
The 16th annual Santa Cruz Dyke March took place on May 31st to increase lesbian visibility and activism. The gathering, unsponsored and unpermitted, began at the clock tower and featured local poets and musicians. After a three and a half hour rally, queers from near and far, and allies, marched down Front St. to Laurel St. and then up Pacific Ave. while spectators lined the sidewalks.

Chants during the march included:

We're Here! We're Queer! We're Not Going Shopping!!

(To the Barney tune)
I love you, you love me, homo-sex-u-a-lity.

2, 4, 6, 8... How do you know your wife is straight?

Poverty, greed, discrimination! Fuck your kinder, gentler nation!

2, 4, 6, 8... we will not assimilate!
