The San Francisco Dyke March is a volunteer-run organization dedicated to creating inclusive space for dykes. Participation within the Dyke March planning committee is subject to the observance of our Code of Conduct. Any volunteer in violation of this Code is subject to limited responsibilities and privileges at the discretion of the Leadership Board, up to and including removal from the Dyke March.

  • In order to participate in committee voting or other substantive decisions (including but not limited to social media content), volunteers should have attended at least three consecutive committee meetings OR four meetings total, virtually or in-person, and completed assigned action items from the meetings.

  • In situations in which a volunteer’s employment or participation in outside organizations creates a conflict of interest, the volunteer is not automatically disqualified from volunteering with the Dyke March, but discretion will be used by the Leadership Board in order to maintain the Dyke March’s anti-capitalist, grassroots, volunteer-run mission. This may include oversight on the volunteer’s fundraising initiatives, their involvement with Dyke March social media content, or any other activities that bring them or their organization monetary benefit.

  • Abusive or exclusionary language or behavior will not be tolerated. This includes but is not limited to transphobic rhetoric, verbal or online threats, and taking advantage of other volunteers financially or emotionally.

San Francisco Dyke March Values

  • The San Francisco Dyke March values bringing the dyke community together to celebrate our unity, be visible, and organize a platform for historically marginalized dykes - including but not limited to trans* dykes, Indigenous dykes, dykes of color and dykes with disabilities.

  • We value ALL dyke identities including but not limited to transdyke, MTF, transfeminine, transmasculine, genderqueer, and gender fluid dykes. We stress that transmisogyny is against the values of the Dyke March. We will not allow a space, physical or virtual, for hatred to be spread.

  • To mobilize these values, we organize our annual march that takes place during the week of Pride celebration (last weekend of June). It is one day where dykes can proclaim space, rights, visibility and respect.
