Gay activist, David Brulnooge was so inspired by the Women’s March that he has announced plans for a mass LGBT protest on Washington D.C. — the National Pride March.
Brulnooge created a Facebook page on January 21, and soon after an event page, which has already garnered 10,000 participants saying they will attend. The event is set for June 11 in Washington D.C. but hopes to spread to other cities on the same day, just like the Women’s March did.
The event reads: “We want to build off the momentum the strong women in the US and around the world started on January 21st. They set the tone with their leadership and it is our intention as a community to follow their lead and play our part.”
It will also be an all inclusive and peaceful event.
Brulnooge notes that they are “working in conjunction with the Capital Pride Alliance, in Washington, DC to incorporate the March into the 2017 Celebration of Pride in the Nation’s Capital.”
From his Facebook posts, there has been a lot of positive response to this march, but it is still in the preliminary stages. That doesn’t mean you can’t start planning your trip to Washington D.C. or contacting your local Pride organizations and get them involved in setting up a National Pride March in your city on the same day.
