Thousands of lesbians packed Dolores Park for the 24th Annual
Thousands of lesbians packed Dolores Park for the 24th Annual Dyke March on Saturday, June 25th. While this year's march came without all the drama of the 2015 Dyke March, that drama added an element of excitement to the march that was missing this year.

Founded in 1993 by groups with fierce names like "The Lesbian Avengers" who had a marked political agenda and bent, the politics of today's march are harder to discern as it has become larger and more festive.

For example, attend the Trans March and one needn't be transgender to know what their issues are, what they're angry about. One can see it. One can feel it in the air. The Trans March "is" what the Dyke March "use" to be.

For a moment last year with the protests, the talk of a "generational divide", I thought the march was heading back to its roots, back to a more protest-like event. Wrong.

A casual observer would have no idea why many of these lesbians were marching. Indeed, many lesbians don't bother to march; they never leave the park. As a social event, the Dyke March is a huge success.

Today's Dyke March is closer to Sunday's Pride March, than it is to those raucous, raw, and certainly political Dyke Marches of the mid-to-late nineties. And for all of us other lesbians, bisexuals, gays and transgenders, that's not a good thing.

After the Dyke March, some young folks hung around, having fun, dancing in the street, blocking traffic and whatnot. The police just tolerated them - at least for a little while but as the evening wore on, they finally had enough and moved to disperse the crowd. There was no real harm done and I don't believe anyone was arrested.
