ANSWER contingents to join Pride parades across the country

ANSWER contingent in Baltimore Pride, 2011

Chapters of the ANSWER Coalition will be marching in LGBT Pride parades across the country. We will raise a militant demand for full federal equality in every sphere of society, something that only a mass movement can acheive. Pride has its origins in the fighting LGBT movement of the 1960s and 1970s, as thousands of LGBT people poured into the streets demanding their rights. Now, decades later, equal rights for LGBT people are still under attack, anti-LGBT violence is on the rise, and many LGBT youth facing extreme bigotry have taken their own lives. Now is the time for us to continue the struggle for full equality in the streets with a united and militant fight back movement.

Below is a listing of the different cities where we will be participating - we encourage all our supporters to join us!
