Local Delegation Heads to National Equality March This Weekend

Posted By on Thu, Oct 8, 2009 at 2:53 PM


At least 35 people from Memphis are making the trip to Washington, D.C. for the National Equality March on Sunday, October 11th (also National Coming Out Day). Thousands of gay rights advocates from across the country will march to demand full federal LGBT equality in matters governed by civil law in all 50 states. That includes marriage rights, an end to the military's Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy, inclusive hate crimes laws and employment non-discrimination, and immigration laws that take into account same-sex partners of U.S. residents.

See the story in this week's Memphis Flyer Fly-By section for more.
