It’s Pride Month, when people commemorate the Stonewall Uprising—a major turning point in the movement for gay rights.

But for the Washington, D.C. Dyke March (a leftist, ****-centered and activism-focused alternative to traditional gay pride parades), that can mean only one thing: activists using “intersectionality” to excuse their own bigotry.
