A record number of participants has been predicted for the Equality March taking place June 11th in AUSTRALIA, SWITZERLAND, CANADA, SPAIN and the USA.
There will be 103 US cities and DC showing our colors. The timing couldn’t be opportune for the USA and especially for my home state of Texas. The legislature has been waging war on LGBT people this year, scheduling a special session to try once again to pass a segregatory, discriminatory Bathroom bill. Five Texas cities are hosting Equality March so this will be a great time to make new friends and bolster one another’s confidence.
The “Equality March for Unity & Pride” is a grassroots movement which will mobilize the diverse LGBTQ+ communities to peacefully and clearly address concerns about the current political landscapes and how it is contributing to the persecution and discrimination of LGBTQ+ individuals.
Progress has been made over the past decade in the ongoing fight for LGBTQ+ inclusion, access, and justice, but there’s still so much more to be done – especially since the progress we’ve achieved is currently being threatened by increased hostile rhetoric, discriminatory policies, and violence perpetrated against the most vulnerable in our communities.
