To all the wonderful supporters of Dyke Night:
In February of 2002, Schelli Dittmann and Max Steiner decided that the leatherdykes in this town needed an event of our own, and they started Dyke Night at the DC Eagle. Without the two of them, there would be no Dyke Night, and we're damn lucky that they stepped up to the plate to make something special for us.
Over the last six years, Dyke Night has grown and changed a great deal: we got a LOT bigger, focused on conscious (and continuous) outreach to transfolk and dykes of color, started a yahoogroup, wrote monthly announcements, started a myspace page, took (and posted online) monthly photos, created a LiveJournal community, and above all did our very best to be a friendly, casual and welcoming space for ALL of us: the dyke, queer and trans community and our friends.
And now, 71 months, entirely too many online posts, and approximately 1,236 posted photos later, we're moving on. It's been one hell of a ride, folks, and it couldn't have happened without the following people:
Schelli Dittmann, Dyke Night founder
Max Steiner, Dyke Night founder
Bill and Ted of the DC Eagle
The DC Kings
MetroWeekly and the Washington Blade
and of COURSE all of you terrific Dyke Night cheerleaders and supporters over the years.
So please come join me THIS WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 28 for (the second-to-last) Dyke Night at the DC Eagle. There will be, as always, cheap drinks, pool tables and absolutely no attitude. And oh yeah, it's FREE.
And you KNOW we're planning a blowout 6th birthday/finale Dyke Night in February. Of COURSE. See you at the DC Eagle THIS WEDNESDAY!
WEDS JANUARY 28th
9pm until you're finished, dammit (aka 2am)
