More Pics from this Year's Dyke March!

Here are more pics from this year's Dyke March – saving by far the best pic for last (for other pics besides these, see Bash Back's posting HERE.

This year, the Dyke March organizers took the unprecedented step of moving the march from its traditional location in pre-dominately white Andersoenville to the predominately Mexican-American Pilsen neighborhood. In doing so they wanted to reflect the fact that the majority of Chicagoans, and LGBT people, are people of color. They also wanted to send a strong message of solidarity and against gentrification.
