Episode 88 – Queer History: Dyke Marches

Over 20,000 people descended upon Washington, D.C. in 1993 for the first dyke march. A group of activists known as The Lesbian Avengers planned the march out of anger for feeling unacknowledged, disrespected, and discriminated against in the straight and gay communities.
