Dyke March Diaries: Coming Out
The Chicago Dyke March is a grassroots mobilization and celebration of dyke, queer, and transgender resilience that takes place every year during the Chicago Pride Festival. IMPACT Program joined the celebration in June, 2010 and interviewed some of the participating marchers to ask them about their experiences as a part of the LGBTQ community. They are real people with real experiences, and these are their stories.
Coming Out: The first Dyke March Diaries entry talks about the coming out process for LGBTQ people. As much as acceptance is the most important part of coming out, it’s also essential to know when you’re ready. (Video created and edited by Beverly Caluza)
