According to an announcement posted to Facebook last Friday:

The Equality March for Unity and Pride named a diverse group of leaders with years of advocacy and community mobilization in LGBTQ+ liberation movements across the country and the world as 12 of its national co-chairs. The co-chairs will be responsible for guiding the ongoing development of the march, which will take place on June 11 in Washington, DC.

Nicole Murray Ramirez, San Diego City Commissioner and National Co-Chair, said “this is the most diverse national executive committee of any of the past five LGBTQ+ marches in Washington.”

“From queer youth, Two-Spirit members, Transgender, Black Lives Matter activists, Undocumented, Immigrant, to HRC, AmFar, and various organizations. The Equality March and the rally stage will indeed truly represent the changing faces of the U.S. and of our LGBTQ+ movement.”

The theme will be “intersectionality,” and the Facebook statement reveals: “The eight colors in ‘equality’ are the original 8 colors of the rainbow flag in honor of its creator, the late Gilbert Baker.”

The march is centered on the principle that in order to heal from the decades of neglect and erasure of marginalized people in the community, we must center transgender and gender expansive communities, and people of color. The co-chairs demand the inclusion of those left behind by social justice movements, including Black, Latinx, Bisexual, and differently-abled individuals.

You can expect more info about logistics of the march in the next few weeks.

    Here’s what you really need to know. It’s march for illegals, BLM terrorists and the trans mafia using a false gay front. Gays, lesbians and bisexuals are not included other than they want your money and your numbers to push their agendas.

      You are welcome to post any link proving your point. If not then it just sounds like a typical Troll deflection.

    • IDoNotHaveToAgreeWithYou

      You are perfectly welcome to eat me. The illegal invasion and BLM thugs have nothing to do with gay rights, the democratic party or liberalism. The trans agenda has nothing to do with gay rights. Stop trying at associate us with criminals and crazies that can’t handle reality.

      Sounds Awesome! I will be there marching right along side of my family of beautiful QTPOC, BLM, Trans, Immigrants, Undocumented, GAY, BI, Pansexual, Queer…etc I can’t wait. Equality for only some is not equality, American or Human. It’s time we all came together and declared that we will no longer leave some behind to suffer just so we can grab our individual rights. No more tearing others down to pretend you’ve built yourself up.

      When you are used to privilege, equality feels like oppression.

      @IDoNotHaveToAgreeWithYou It’s blatantly obvious that this isn’t a march for gay rights. This is putting gays on the back burner while illegals and BLM radicals take center stage to push a radicalized agenda of open borders and socialism.

      The radical left and SJW’s rather focus on a tribalism mindset of social groups instead of justice for the individual. This type of thinking lets these groups focus on group identity, relieving these people of individual responsibility, even when it comes to protesting violently and destroying property.

      The left likes to think its a popularity contest of who is victimized the most, which is why they are pushing these people of color to the front of this event.

      In the end what do they actually want? In the end, it’ll all come down to socialism and free stuff

    • IDoNotHaveToAgreeWithYou

      Lvng1Tor make sure you kiss the muslims’ butts too. That’s worked out so well for gays also.

      @IDoNotHaveToAgreeWithYou

      So I asked you to post any link proving your comment and you got mad and lashed out. And still haven’t posted any link that proved your statement.

      So lets review. You made a claim that this march isn’t about lgbt issues, then blabbed out the typical right wing code phrasing about minorities and illegals, then got asked for anything that proved your comment and you freaked out and started name calling like a child.

      To summarize, you lied, got busted and had no response.

    • mhoffman953

      @DCguy He didn’t lie. Just look at all of the other past marches that have happened this year. You had the ‘May Day’ march which was supposed to be about labor unions and wages, instead it turned into a march for illegal immigration (which actually lowers wages)

      If you want proof that this march will be the same, just re-read the article. The theme is “intersectionality”, so instead of focusing on gays, it’s going to focus on color.

    “Intersectionality”

    And you wonder why Trump won? Nobody wants identity politics.

    Maybe if Democrats abandoned identity politics, they’d actually win elections. If that happened, we might all have health insurance.

    But no, just stay on the train of “progress.” Just keep calling everyone racist, sexist, etc. The American people will accept the message eventually, if you beat them over the head long enough.

    • Lvng1Tor

      Damn selfish pesky people just wanting to be treated equality and no longer swept under the rug, treated as 2nd, 3rd class citizens, and wanting their fair shot at the American Dream! Ugh…nothing good ever came from marching against the status quo…everything good came from ignoring it.

    • KaiserVonScheiss

      Intersectionality and identity politics has nothing to do with equality under the law. It leads to quite the opposite.

    • mhoffman953

      @Lvng1Tor

      “Damn selfish pesky people just wanting to be treated equality and no longer swept under the rug, treated as 2nd, 3rd class citizens, and wanting their fair shot at the American Dream”

      What fair shot at the American Dream aren’t they getting? What do you propose should be done?

      If someone is illegal in America, they have broken the law. If you feel we should give ALL people the chance at the American dream whether they are illegal or legal, then answer this question. How many illegals should we allow into our country, without following immigration law, to achieve this?

    • IDoNotHaveToAgreeWithYou

      Lvng1Tor damn pesky outsiders need to stop using they gay brand like it’s their own. It isn’t. But of course they do it because no one supports them otherwise. Associating with criminals does not help us. It only helps them. And the vast majority of us do not support these thug groups goals anyway.

    • DCguy

      How interesting, Mo Bro is apparently giving that screename a rest, but two of his others, Kaiser and MHoffman have now posted conversations with each other in multiple areas.

      You aren’t fooling anybody. Oh, and I love that anybody pointing out what they are gets you furious and you call it “Identity” politics.

      Funny, I never hear you complain when Christians talk about their religion or when Trump supporters talk about white people being oppressed. So in other words, identity politics is fine with you as long as it’s people defending their bigotry against minorities.

    • KaiserVonScheiss

      @DCguy

      I’ve never defended identity politics, nor have I ever claimed white people to be oppressed.

    • mhoffman953

      @DCguy What’s with you and constantly thinking that the people who disagree with you are all actually the same person?

    • KaiserVonScheiss

      @mhoffman953

      It’s just some lame ass attempt to poison the well.
