DOB Sydney puts forward our inclusion statement

At our recent AGM, the Committee presented an inclusion statement to the Membership which sought to clarify our commitment to providing an inclusive club for our LBTQI community.

Inclusion Statement

Dykes on Bikes Sydney was originally established to provide a safe space for same-sex attracted women to participate in motorcycling and community events.

Women have often been the marginalised, silenced or invisible part of the Gay and Lesbian community, and it’s important that we have a space where we can be loud and proud. Leading the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade is one of the few spaces where women are highly visible.
Over the years our community has changed, and some of our members have changed how they identify as well. Younger LBTQI people in the community have more opportunities and support to explore their identity, which means simply identifying as a woman may not cover their gender experiences.

We continue to welcome any member of the LBTQI community who identifies as a woman,who is non-binary or genderqueer (an identity which does not fit the male or female binary), and has a history of being assigned female and who is also attracted to the same.
