Now online, The Lesbian Avengers Eat Fire Too! (1993)

Twenty-five years ago, on June 28, 1992 a handful of activist dykes threw down the gauntlet: "LESBIANS! DYKES! GAY WOMEN!... We're wasting our lives being careful. Imagine what your life could be. Aren't you ready to make it happen?"

By 1994, a multitude had responded. Twenty thousand dykes marched on Washington. More than sixty chapters sprang up worldwide, launching Dyke Marches near and far. The Lesbian Avengers also took "out" gay activism where it had never been before — into the heart of heartland politics where they successfully beat back anti-gay legislation in rural Idaho.

Join dykes across the world as we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Lesbian Avengers, and their most important legacy — the Dyke March.
