26th San Francisco Dyke March Saturday, June 23rd @ 5pm Calling All Dykes: Take Up Your Space Dyke is not just a sexual orientation. It’s a political identity. It stands for community. It stands for solidarity. It stands for radical fight. It stands for trans*, black, brown, queer, bisexual, lesbian, disabled, chronically ill, fat, femme, butch, indigenous, gender expansive love. It does not stand by erasure. By displacement. By appropriation. By hate. The 26th San Francisco Dyke March is a call to action. We’re calling all dykes. Each and every one of you - to take up your space and hold it close to you as we hold on for our lives. As we hold on to each other Dyke March programming will begin at Dolores Park around 11am. Expect to hear from local community activists, dance to the grooves of local DJs, sing along with some cool musical artists, and snap along with local poets. Afterwards a march takes places through the Mission and the Castro. thedykemarch.org/

Mission District Again Wins Best Neighborhood of San Francisco
Wikipedia lists 120 'hoods in San Francisco including just one sub-district of our venerable Mission neighborhood, Mission Dolores. At one time, the "Transmission" or zone West of Mission threatened to be unique cultural zone but change is afoot at all corners these days. None of the major streets associated with our six merchant groups [besides us there's Valencia Merchants, Mission Creek Merchants, Lower 24th St/ Calle 24 ("Veinticuatro") Cultural District, NEMBIZ, and Mission Bernal Merchants.
The Mission's geographical location surrounded by the hills of Twin Peaks, Diamond Heights, Bernal Hill and Potrero Hill insulate it from the fog and wind from the west giving it the best weather in the City which is often joyfully rediscovered by the increasing crowds at Dolores Park which won best People Watching. The backbone of Bay Area transit, BART won Best Transit and our two BART stations is one more than any other neighborhood. As former wetlands, we are relatively flat which promotes bicycle and scooter use and the popularity of the best bike route the wiggle which begins at Dolores Street and Market and was once the route for water from Crystal Springs and the road to the Presidio.
