Started in 1994, the Seattle Dyke March is an annual rally and march happening the Saturday of Seattle's Pride Weekend.
The Seattle Dyke March is the longest-running Seattle Pride event that has continuously taken place on Capitol Hill. Our focus on political activism and dyke-identified speakers and performers means that we contribute a distinctive perspective and much-needed space apart from the overarching commercialism of the rest of the weekend.
The Dyke March has also been committed to representing the wide spectrum of Dyke-Identity, including people of all abilities, all races and ethnicities, all religions, and more. Our event represents the one day of the year in Seattle that reliably sees an audience of hundreds of politically aware, community-minded dykes and their friends gather.
We create space on our stage to highlight and honor the experiences, pleasures, activism and identities of queer women and dyke-identified people across the gender spectrum, a space that recharges us and allows us to survive and thrive.
