Faces Of Resistance: The View From The Equality Marches

You are seen and heard.

A record turnout was expected for today’s Equality March for Unity and Pride in Washington, D.C., which coincides with Capital Pride.

Sister marches are also being held today and all month in more than 100 cities across the country and around the world, giving activists the opportunity to march in solidarity with those in D.C. Today’s Resist March in Los Angeles replaces the annual Pride parade as the centerpiece of the L.A. Pride festival.

Inspired by the success of the Women’s March on Washington in January, the Equality March aims to amplify the voices of queer resistance in the face of an anti-LGBT White House.

“The Equality March and sister events across the country will give voice to our concerns, and support, uplift, and bring attention to those in our communities who are targeted due to immigration status, ethnicity, religion, skin color, gender, and disability,” says Equality March founder David Bruinooge.
