Since 1976, the deafening roar of women on motorcycles has served as the prelude to the San Francisco Pride Parade.  Dykes on Bikes® holds a mythic place both at the forefront of the annual SF Pride Parade, and in the hearts of millions of people all over the world, as an inspirational symbol of queer pride and lesbian power. The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual Transgender Historical Society will host an exhibit chronicling the last 30 years of Dykes on Bikes. Join us for “30 Years of a Ride,” a discussion exploring the major mile markers of this landmark group.
