Rally Updates

Our march for equality, in unison with over 250,000 participants nationally, is departing from 6th and Upas at 10:30am on Saturday.  The march will end with a rally at the County Administration Building at 1600 Pacific Highway at 1pm.  We have some excited announcements about the rally:

We will be forming the world’s largest pride flag. The 16,000 square foot rainbow flag will be visible from the air and will be constructed of 3,000+ rally participants holding 2×3 pieces of colored poster board.  The pride flag symbolizes our commitment that all people, gay or straight, must have equal rights.

Gloria Allred, Todd Gloria, faith leaders, and others will be speaking. Allred, a Los Angeles civil rights attorney, represents Robin Tyler and Diane Olson.  Tyler and Olson’s lawsuit led to the Supreme Court decision in May that brought marriage equality to California.  Allred has now filed a new suit to invalidate proposition 8.
