On Sunday, October 11, thousands of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender citizens and their friends will march in Washington DC and in other cities around the country, in support of full rights for GLBT people. The event is called the National Equality March and is not without controversy as you can imagine. We have all the details about the Washington DC Gay Rights March below.

National Equality March

Organizers of the Gay Rights March on DC, Equality Across America, say it’s “a call to action for a new generation of activists” to join the gay rights movement. Their goal, they say, is to bring full equality to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Americans and their families in all 50 states. Among the federal issues at stake are employment, military and immigration discrimination – targeting the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy – as well as the repeal of DOMA or the Defense of Marriage Act.

Since the passing of Prop 8 in California, the gay community has been planning the National Equality March in DC. The March is on October 11 and begins 12:00 noon EDT. They expect thousands to participate to demand equal protection under the law in all 50 states.

However, the first openly gay congressman, the loveable Barney Fwank, says that this kind of march is really only an emotional release and a big waste of time. Apparently he’d rather see gay rights supporters directly lobbying their elected officials instead.

“The only thing they’re going to be putting pressure on is the grass.”

Wow. He sounds crabby and not very supportive of this sort of advocacy. But march organizers are pragmatic about Barney, saying:

“We hear Congressman Frank when he says this is about getting back into your district and doing the work there,” said Kip Williams, co-director of the march. But he said the march in Washington “is about building community and building a network who will go back and do that work.”

And as can be expected, Christian activists are also not pleased with this show of support in DC for gay rights. There will be counter protests from them at the event. Their view is that God loves homosexuals, and they can be redeemed, but society cannot “normalize” a homosexual lifestyle or marriage. They feel as Christians, they speak the truth that God made marriage to be a sacred covenant and sacrament between a man and a woman, and His Laws and order cannot be nullified – not by them, not by the Courts, and not by his eminence, Nobel Laureate Barack Obama.
