Dyke March ...Make That Marches (Plural)
Put on your comfortable shoes, girls, because there will be not one, but TWO Dyke Marches this weekend. Friday night Christopher Street West's LA Pride will be sponsoring the "traditional" WeHo Dyke March, which has been an annual event since around 1994.
However, original founders of the WeHo Dyke March, former members of Act Up! including Cindy Crogan and Judy Sisneros, splintered off in 2003 to form Dyke March Los Angeles. They felt the march was getting lost amongst all of the other activities of LA Pride in "Boy's Town", and wanted to promote lesbian visibility. Dyke March Los Angeles will be happening in Silverlake (aka Girlztown) on Saturday night.
So basically, Friday night is the traditional Christopher Street Pride WeHo Dyke March, whereas Saturday night is the "real" Dyke March L.A.
