About DYKE NEWS

DYKE NEWS is a community newsletter lovingly printed on a RISO GR3770 on Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ territories (victoria, bc canada) with a goal of fostering a local community space in print for dykes, lesbians, bi women, and anyone across trans, nonbinary, gender non-conforming, & queer identities with a relationship to lesbian culture, history, or identity.

Taking the form of a print newsletter & taking after lesbian newsletters like Vancouver’s Diversity: The Lesbian Rag (1988-91), New York’s Dyke: A Quarterly (1975-79), and Victoria’s own LesbiaNews (1989-98), DYKE NEWS hopes to be a resting space amidst the noise & pixels of today’s communications.

DYKE NEWS is for grounded connection and conversation that brings us into tangible relationship with each other. For community news rooted in the places we live. And for the strengthening of networks resilient & resistant to white supremacy, settler colonial occupation, cisheteropatriarchy, and the many structures of power that are actively building and maintaining the social, racial, economic, and climate crises we are living in.
