Head to Washington, D.C. on Sunday, June 11th for the Equality March for Unity & Pride. “Progress has been made over the past decade in the ongoing fight for LGBTQ inclusion, access, and justice,” say the event’s organizers, “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.”

Lineup is at 9 a.m. at I (eye) Street and 17th Street NW. The march begins at 10 a.m.

The organizers state that they will use the march “to give voice to our concerns, and to support, uplift, and bring attention to those in our communities who are targeted due to immigration status, ethnicity, religion, skin color, gender, and disability. Lack of unity has caused many of our needs to be neglected or ignored. But now, for 2017 and beyond, we are working to learn from our prior mistakes and come together through common belief in inalienable human rights and dignity for all.”
