Happy Pride to all on the 40th anniversary of Stonewall. In spite of torrential rain, I had a great time participating in the 17th annual Dyke March, which tends to be my personal Pride highlight. The Dyke March is a non-corporate political event in which queer women march-- without a permit!-- down Fifth Avenue, celebrating our diverse and powerful community and basically telling the world that, if it doesn't like that, it can feck off. To me, it's truer than the other Pride events to the original spirit of Stonewall and Pride generally.
