Trannies, Dykes and Bears, Oh My!

In Community, LGBT, The Castro on June 28, 2009 at 1:28 pm

Pride weekend has come and almost gone. I think there is one more parade. And we, the Castro, the Mission and Dolores Park have survived to fight another day. Here is some great coverage from Stefania Rousselle and Lola Chavez of Mission Loc@l of the Dyke March on Saturday.  And Liz Highleyman of Indybay has great photos of Friday’s Trans March.

The Trans March left Dolores Park and went through the Mission this year. They wanted to take the trans gendered community out of the gay ghetto of the Castro and into a more working class neighborhood, march organizers stated.

The Dyke March rally drew tremendous crowds (the weather was great), yet they didn’t seem to be quit as loud as in years past.  The march terminated in the Castro at the Pink Saturday party.
