Dykes took over Atlanta Pride on Saturday afternoon, marching in the streets around Piedmont Park for empowerment, equality and a show of force.
The annual Dyke March stepped off from the Charles Allen entrance to the park, worked its way along 10the Street, turned north on Peachtree before hitting 14th Street and a return to the park.
They marched with rainbow flags, t-shirts emblazoned with "Black Dykes Matter" and "This Parade Is Gay," and even some pushing their children in strollers.
It's a proud annual Pride tradition.
