We have moved up times this year to get the action going earlier in the day. We will need performers and speakers from 1:00 to 2:00 PM and then again from 3:00 to 4:00 PM. We take to the streets promptly at 2:00 PM!

Please be aware that the Philly Dyke March stage is a dyke-identified* safe space. We welcome dyke allies in all other areas of the march but the stage is reserved for dyke-identified individuals. Thank you for understanding.
Submission of an application does not guarantee a spot on the stage. All applications are due ASAP! We will be getting back to all applicants by Sunday, May 19th.
Accessibility Note: We will again have a ramp securely attached to the stage to accommodate dyke-identified performers of varying abilities.
We can't wait to see what this year's talent will bring to the Dyke March stage!
*Note on dyke-identified: Dyke identity represents the reclaiming of a term historically used to oppress masculine presenting women and/or lesbians, or women/womyn/womxn attracted to other women/womyn/womxn. The term dyke now encompasses a multitude of sexual orientations and gender identities including, but not limited to the following: queer, lesbian, bisexual, trans* and cisgender women/womyn/womxn. For some, dyke identity speaks to one's romantic and/or sexual attractions and behaviors and for others it also takes on a more political meaning. Most importantly, it is about how the individual identifies.
