Facebook: Chicago Dyke March Collective
Dyke March is a grassroots mobilization and celebration of dyke, queer, and transgender resilience. In Chicago the march has taken place in Boystown, and for over 10 years in the Andersonville neighborhood. But after the march of 2007, organizers and community members began to ask what would happen if the march took place in different neighborhoods, and how would this change the march into a movement. So in 2008 and 2009, Dyke March took place in Pilsen, a predominantly Mexican neighborhood in Chicago, with about 1,000 participants. This year Dyke March will be in South Shore! Come and celebrate the diverse LGBT communities of the south side of Chicago with pride! After the march we will have live djs and performances to celebrate at the park!

Facebook: Women and Children First
Women & Children First began in a modest storefront in 1979. Over the years we’ve moved twice and are now in a northside Chicago neighborhood known for its diversity, queer-friendliness, women-owned businesses and community spirit. Our staffers include teachers, graduate students, professional writers and storytellers, political activists, board members, and poets. Each of us is a reader, a feminist, and a bookseller. Our purpose in beginning the store 28 years ago was to promote the work of women writers and to create a place in which all women would find books reflecting their lives and interests. We strive to do this in an atmosphere in which all are respected, valued, and well-served. That is our purpose still, online as well as in the store.
