Dyke March Stockholm
Pride City, Wed 2 Aug 5:30 PM
A warm welcome to the third edition of Dyke March Stockholm!
This is a demonstration by and for dykes, for all our common rights. Together we take to the streets of Stockholm to create meeting places, celebrate our existence and to take up public space. And remember! This is a demonstration and not a parade!
We also want to emphasize that this is a march that is inclusive of transgender and non-binary people, as the march is for ALL dykes. Transphobia is NOT welcome here.
WHEN, WHERE, AND HOW?
We assemble on Wednesday, August 2nd at 5:30pm at Medborgarplatsen to organize ourselves and we start marching at 6:00pm.
Then we march together to Tantolunden via Götgatan, Hornsgatan, Ringvägen, and Zinkens Väg (about 3 km). After that we mingle in Tantolunden while watching some performances.
Feel free to bring flags, signs or banners to get your important message out there! Big and small! Just make sure that your banner isn’t wider than 3 meters!
WHO IS A DYKE?
Dyke March Stockholm is a demonstration by and for all dykes in the broadest sense. We choose to use the term "dyke" as an umbrella term which includes a large diversity of people who may all have common experiences and experiences of existing in the world.
This includes but is not limited to lesbian dykes, bisexual dykes, pansexual dykes, dykes who are flator, trans dykes, non-binary dykes, butch dykes, femme dykes, queer dykes, dykes who are unsure if they are dykes, dykes who are dykes in silence, dykes who want to shout that they are dykes from the rooftops.
We in the organizing group are a wonderful mix of all of the above!
WHY DYKE MARCH?
Simply put: to promote activism for dyke rights AND to celebrate our wonderful community!
We believe that dykes are a group whose different perspectives and input are often marginalized and made invisible both in society and within the LGBTQIA+ movement. We want to create a meeting place for the diversity of dykes that exist in the world! Together, we want to build safe spaces where we can celebrate our existence and find support and strength from each other, all based on our shared experiences of being a dyke, in all the different ways one can be a dyke!
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
If you as a dyke recognize yourself in what we have written here, this is a demonstration for you!
If you are not a dyke and still want to show your support for our rights, you are welcome to stand at the side of the demonstration route or walk behind the demonstration itself to take part in this manifestation, with the understanding that this is a demonstration by and for dykes.
Remember, this is a demonstration and not a parade!
