Queer LA: Shout It Out At the West Hollywood Dyke March!


It’s pride month so naturally queers take to the streets to show off the pride we actually sustain 24/7 and 365 days of the year.

On Friday June 9th in West Hollywood, it was the night for dykes to march, rev their motors, bang their drums and strut their stuff along Santa Monica Boulevard while shouting “we recruit!” and “we resist!”.  A beautiful sight to behold!

About Judy Ornelas Sisneros

I am a native Californian, born and raised in Bakersfield and eventually escaping to San Jose then San Francisco where I spent every free moment in punk and post-punk culture spaces before heading to LA permanently in 1989. I have also spent major time as an AIDS and queer street activist, which today along with my passion for punk/alternative music still informs my personal and social life. I love photography, film and playing punk/post-punk stuff on the bass. My LA Beat contributions are usually photos that give a glimpse into the vibrant art and music scene that makes Los Angeles such an amazing city to live in today.
