Hi everyone,

Thought you might be interested in photos from Dyke March Chicago and Pride. With regard to the latter: I just covered one portion of it, a new group named Bash Back! that's doing some interesing radical organising work and had a *really* interesting "float" at the Parade. You can also check out the articles I wrote for the Windy City Times on the events.

Thanks for sharing these Yasmin! I wish I could have been there!

Thanks, Bil! I have to admit - both events were a lot of fun this year. Pride is usually such a yawn, and Dyke March has never been too attractive to me even though I live near the neigborhood (okay, the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce might insist that I actually live there, but I cleave to my Uptown origins). This year's events were quite different and energising because of the interventions.
