RECOMMENDED: Full Gay Pride NYC coverage

The annual Dyke March, held the Saturday before the annual Gay Pride March, drew nearly 20,000 participants on its 20th anniversary this year. Still not sanctioned by the city, the Dyke March has the same aim as the larger event—to gain equal civil rights for gays—yet strives to draw attention to particular issues faced by lesbians. But the Dyke March is also about Gay Pride, and the girls showed they know how to celebrate their queerdom as well as any of the boys.
