In 2009 I designed the San Francisco Dyke March poster. This is a slightly adapted version of that design. I visually interepretted that year’s theme in the poster Dyke Rights = Human Rights, Human Rights = Dyke Rights. The best part of the experience was one day when I sent a version of the poster for feed back and I could hear all the women in the background jubilantly yelling “make her fat, make her old, make her a leather butch!”Never had I heard women so happily embrace aspects of a woman that mainstream¬† society marginalizes.¬† It was the best feedback session I ever had.
