LGBTQ Activists Are Planning a National Pride March on Washington

LGBTQ rights activists are planning a massive National Pride March on Washington, D.C. in June.

The march is being organized with help by the Capital Pride Alliance.

The details are still sketchy, but on the event’s Facebook page, organizers write:

We urge all supporters, friends, and family to descend on DC for the Pride 2017 weekend (June 8-11th) to make sure our voices are heard. If you cannot attend the March in Washington, DC, we urge you to reach out to your local Pride organizations to assist in creating solidarity through your existing Pride events. Let’s make this truly a “National Pride March” that spreads from coast to coast and shows solidarity through our Pride movement.

The organizers hope to have a huge, worldwide turnout like last weekend’s Women’s March, which drew over 3 million people.
