You Should Go: NYC Dyke March Benefit Concert This Saturday!

Jamie’s Team Pick:

June is gay pride month in NYC, which means all sorts of enticing events for us queers to celebrate how far we’ve come and how much further we expect this country to evolve in the future. One event I’m definitely attending this Saturday in Brooklyn is the Dyke March Benefit Show at Public Assembly, and it’s not even just because my friend organized the event (though full disclosure, my friend organized the event). In case you didn’t catch it, check out Carmen’s post from earlier this month for more about all the goodness that is the Dyke March.

Doors open Saturday at 3pm and the line up for the day includes Mitten, Allison Weiss, Julia Welden and Sierra. Also look – look at all those cats on the event flyer! 

This year is the 20th NYC Dyke March, so here’s hoping we see at least 20,000 dykes marching down Fifth Avenue on June 23. Follow @nycdykemarch on Twitter and on Facebook. And if you can’t make the show, maybe check out the NYC Dyke March happy hour fundraiser at Stonewall on June 7th.
