Boston Dyke March 2017

This was my second year photographing the Boston Dyke March, but it’s been happening annually since 1995, the year I was born. Every year dozens of lesbians, bisexual women, trans people, and other members of the LGBTQ+ community march around downtown Boston and then gather at Parkman Bandstand in the Boston Common for live music and spoken word performances. The march started as a more inclusive, accessible, community-based, political alternative to mainstream Pride celebrations, and you can feel that when you’re there. The whole event has this magical sense of radical queerness and acceptance. I can’t wait to go back next year.
