Congrats to the Equality Marchers…

A bitch caught coverage of the National Equality March on CSPAN and online and was impressed with the diversity of voices represented among the speakers!

Congrats to the organizers and the marchers…

…and to the local communities they represent and return to, fired up and ready to work toward LGBT equality and social justice.

The one thing we did right was the day we started to fight!

Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on!

I have friends in that march! No luck picking them out of the crowd, though.

They must have been stoked about the President's acknowledgment that the ridiculous "don't ask don't tell" policy's days are numbered. Now if we could only get the number....

It was such an impressive march :)

People have to keep on pushing this, keep reminding the powers that be that the people are here and the issues aren't going away - or they'll be shoved under the rug and ignored

Hooray!


Also, since you're in STL...didn't know if you had seen or heard about this: http://www.stlbeacon.org/region/archcity_defenders_and_holistic_legal_advocacy

It sounds hopeful.

Agreed! I was particularly interested in what the NAACP had to say since it's about time they joined the fight.

Saw the rally on c-span and the turn out was impressive...Only thing that saddens me is that there wasn't a pro-healthcare reform rally just as large! :\
