London plays host to the first Dyke March tomorrow since the 1980s. Meet at Soho Square at 5pm to listen to speakers (including Lady Phyll Opoku of UK Black Pride, disability campaigner Kirsten Hearn and writer Paris Lees) and then pick up your placards for a march through central London (route below). The organising committee says: ‘Dyke March London is about dykes. We support dyke visibility and celebrate our love and passion for women and all dykes. Dyke March London is for everyone: dykes, queers, bisexuals, transwomen, genderqueers and allies. This is a grassroots, non-commercial, anti-racist, community-centred, accessible, inclusive event: we welcome all folk who want to support dykes to march with us.’ Dress up or down, bring your mates and if you’re coming down alone, look for the flowery umbrella in Soho Square where someone will be introducing people.
