APRIL MARCH

What If They Threw A Worldwide LGBT March And Nobody Came?

Did you know there are LGBT rights marches tomorrow in cities all over the world? We didn’t either.

The effort is the work of Oklahoma City activist Joe Knudson, who started a Facebook campaign called “Let’s Reach 1 Million People Campaign… It’s a Start! LGBT Equality.” Though the Washington Blade reports between 1,000 and 2,500 people are expected at a rally in the nation’s capital—at least according to the permit organizers filed with D.C. police—no major American LGBT groups have signed on to participate and publicity for the events has been sparse.

Across the country, similar rallies have been scheduled in Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Las Vegas, New York and Orlando. Overseas, marches are planned in England, Namibia, Tanzania, Nigeria, Uganda and the Philippines.
