CHICAGO — Not into the crowded (and increasingly corporate) North Side Pride parade? An “anti-capitalist” alternative—the 23rd annual Chicago Dyke March—is returning to Little Village this year.
Dyke March participants will gather at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Little Village Academy, 2620 S. Lawndale Ave., and begin their march at 2:30 p.m. At 3:30 p.m., the group will head to Piotrowski Park for a rally that features performances, food and more.
“We gather to create space and community while supporting local POC centered art, music, and performance,” the event’s Facebook page reads. “We are anti-capitalist, anti-state, and anti-police and do not accept funds or donations from state, corporations or oppressive institutions.”
Organizers of the march are asking supporters with the means to donate through their GoFundMe page to help fund food, permits, ASL interpreters and other costs associated with the gathering.
