This year we have decided to cancel the Vienna Dyke* March due to COVID restrictions. Instead, we are taking part in a Global Dyke Day organized by different Dyke Marches worldwide and which will be live-streamed for 24 hours. Vienna will put together an afternoon of live music, poetry, performances, and/or political statements focusing on dyke* solidarity with Black Lives Matter and global dyke* solidarity; a careful real-life and virtual get-together.
June 27th, 2020: 2pm – 5pm
We have decided to host an afternoon program on the 27th of June in Villa Vida with the proceeds going to Villa Vida which has suffered greatly from the long closing during shut down. A smaller percentage will go to the participating artists. There will be an opportunity for visitors and guests to be physically present on the day from 2-5 pm and make a sliding scale donation.
[wdgk_donation]If you are watching the live stream and also the recording we are grateful for your donations. In this way, the event aims at bringing together the dyke* community of Vienna after the lockdown, but also to bring together Dyke March followers and participants from all over the world.
The dyke march invites all those to participate, who identify as, sympathize with, and support dykes in all their fabulousness! Any person who identifies as a dyke is welcome to join us regardless of gender expression or identity, sex assigned at birth, sexual orientation, race, age, political affiliation, religious identity, ability, class, or immigration status. If you would like you to be a part of this with a performance, a statement, a song, or help promoting, financing, or physically setting up this event, please get back to email@example.com
Attend, Watch, Donate

The stream will be free and available to watch online. We are asking for donations to help contribute to the Villa Vida Cafe project and contributing performers.
Black Lives Matter
This year’s Global Dyke Day is happening at a time when Black activists are giving us a myriad of examples of direct resistance, speaking truth to power, and collective organizing. The Dyke March was born from the conviction that “we must organize among ourselves to fight for our rights, safety, and visibility.” We ask that you show up for Black lives with that same fervor throughout the weeks and months to come.
