DYKE NEWS is an emerging community newsletter project based 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.

Issue 1 was printed in early May and is available to purchase here—click through to purchase a single issue or subscribe for the whole year (4 issues), canadian / international / reduced rates for BIPOC & disabled folks are available!

Submissions are now open for Issue 3, due out November! Click the Issue 3 “call for submissions” for guidelines on what we’re looking for, and send in your stuff by Saturday, October 1!

DYKE NEWS is created by Kara Stanton, a white nonbinary dyke of Ukrainian, Scottish, and Irish ancestry living on Lekwungen territories,  a writer and cultural worker committed to realizing community spaces in print and in person; & a generally anxiety-ridden Alison Bechdel stand-in. They can’t wait to see what news the dykes have to offer. :-)
