7:30 am meet Senior Rabbi Lisa Edwards and Rabbi Heather Miller at Hollywood Blvd and McCadden Place (Morris Kight Square). Clergy and Congregants will march together making a visual Impact of faith based organizations who are open and affirming of all people. We will march from Hollywood, where LA Pride was born in 1970, to West Hollywood, where LA Pride grew up. Instead of a parade celebrating our past progress, we are requesting that our entire LGBTQ+ community and its allies march to ensure our collective futures.
Our march will be taking place in solidarity with, and on the same day as, the National Equality March for Unity and Pride in Washington DC. The LGBTQ community in Los Angeles simply felt that in 2017 we need to return to our roots and protest so that those who would roll back our hard won human rights are put on notice that we will not stand idly by. This is the founding premise of Christopher Street West. This march is for those who believe that America’s strength is its diversity. This is not a Democratic or Republican march. It is not a red or blue march. This is a red, white and blue march meant for anyone who cares about human rights. This Sunday our unique, diverse, inter-sectional voices will come together in one harmonized voice.
