The #ResistMarch takes place on Sunday, June 11, 8am-1pm. It will start in Los Angeles, at the intersection of Hollywood and Highland. It will end in West Hollywood.
When any American’s rights are under threat, all our rights are threatened.
We are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer. 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 1970’s 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, transphobia, xenophobia, sexism, and racism.
Together we #RESIST

LA Mayor Eric Garcetti: “We will stand up for each other, speak out for our neighbors, and march boldly forward together in pursuit of equality.”
Pride is about resisting with love, because hate has no place in Los Angeles. We will resist any effort to turn America away from the promise of tolerance, respect and dignity for everybody—whether you’re gay or straight, trans or cis gendered, Christian or Muslim, immigrant or native-born. I am proud to celebrate Pride this year with an unequivocal message: we will stand up for each other, speak out for our neighbors, and march boldly forward together in pursuit of equality for all people. Resisting with love, because hate has no place in Los Angeles.
