08 Pride Post #22: A praetorian vanguard of queer power — Dykes on Bikes®

The spectacle thundered to life about 10 a.m. in the traditional manner, with hundreds of motorcycles ridden by the Women’s Motorcycle Contingent — the “Dykes on Bikes” — pouring off Beale Street onto Market Street. Greeted by their gay brethren’s cries of “Here come the girls!” the leather-clad and occasionally bare-chested riders whooped and yelled and carried signs saying: “We all deserve freedom to marry” and “We had sodomy for breakfast.”
