The Final Fight

We #RESIST 

When any American’s rights are under threat, all our rights are threatened.

This year, LA Pride is hosting a human rights march instead of a parade. The march is called the #ResistMarch and is in unity with sister marches taking place in New York, Austin, Seattle, Washington D.C. and other cities across the nation.

Taking place on Sunday, June 11, 8am-1pm, the march will start in Los Angeles, at the intersection of Hollywood and Highland. It will end in West Hollywood.

Here is the mission statement published on the #ResistMarch’s website:

When any American’s rights are under threat, all our rights are threatened.

We are LGBTQ+. We are people of color. We are people of different faiths. We are people of all genders and no gender. We are immigrants. We are dreamers. We are people with disabilities. We are parents. We are allies. And we are beautiful intersections of these. But most of all, we are American. Yet our rights are in jeopardy. Forces are gathering in government that intend to take away our hard-won basic human rights.  

We are calling on everyone to peacefully march with us on June 11th from Hollywood and Highland to West Hollywood. Instead of a Pride Parade meant to celebrate our past progress, we are going to march to ensure all our futures.  Just as we did in 1970s first LGBTQ+ Pride, we are going to march in unity with those who believe that America’s strength is its diversity. Not just LGBTQ+ people but all Americans and dreamers will be wrapped in the Rainbow Flag and our unique, diverse, intersectional voices will come together in one harmonized proclamation.

We #RESIST forces that would divide us.

We #RESIST those who would take our liberty.

We #RESIST homophobia, xenophobia, sexism, and racism.

Together we #RESIST
