Lesbian Atlanta gets its Dyke March on for Pride

Add this share

A diverse crowd of hundreds of lesbians marched along the streets of Midtown on Saturday for the annual Dyke March during Atlanta Pride. 

The event, which skewed young and festive, offered chants, tunes from DJ Automagic and even a trolley for participants who couldn't manage on foot. Atlanta police escorted the march along its route, which stepped off at the Charles Allen Drive entrance to Piedmont Park, went west on 10th Street, north on Peachtree Street and east on 14th Street until it returned to the park. 

It's an annual tradition.
