Gay March On Washington In October

Me ca. 1977

There is a national march on Washington for gay equality planned for October 11.

I marched in 1979, I was arrested at the Supreme Court in 1987 protesting Bowers v Hardwick...but marches after that were little more than parties, an excuse to dance and feel good about ourselves. No hard political work was done at these marches since 1987. Is this going to be yet another fluff get together? Where is the plan to close down DC with mass non violent civil disobedience? Where is the anger...and the determination to shake things up? No more party marches for me.
