SE Michigan Dyke March


On June 5, 2010 Ferndale was home to the first annual SE Michigan Dyke March.  According to their website - - “The Southeast Michigan Dyke March is based on a worldwide movement. We use the term Dyke March as a means of identifying with other Dyke Marches that came before us…While the word dyke can be offensive, using it in a context that promotes visibility, rights and inclusion can actually be empowering.”
