The March for Equality -- Slideshow

On Sunday, I marched on Washington with 100,000 of my closest friends in the March for Equality. For all those who say God hates the gays, the weather begged to differ: it was crisp and sunny, a perfect day for a politically active stroll from the White House to the Capitol to express our growing displeasure with the piecemeal approach to equal rights for GLBT citizens. I've got some pictures of the day posted here in the form of a slideshow.

While President Obama's speech to the HRC was somewhat heartening on Saturday night as he committed to ending DADT on his watch, he oddly failed to even mention the March that went right by his house. There is no denying the fact that the President has alot of work to do on this issue. And that's why we were there...to remind him that a large number of this nation's citizens are still treated as lesser than. There's hope this can change in the next 4-8 years but it's not gonna happen unless we demand it loud and clear; full Federal rights for all of this nation's GLBT citizens. In the workplace, in relationships, in all aspects of our lives. Nothing less will do.
