Los Angeles LGBTQ #ResistMarch to Occur on June 11th


Instead of a Pride Parade meant to celebrate our past progress, #ResistMarch will be a gathering to ensure our futures on June 11th, 2017. It It will go from Hollywood and Highland to West Hollywood.

Brian Pendleton, #ResistMarch Founder and Organizer, was inspired by the 1970's first LGBTQ+ Pride and the recent Women’s March. The #ResistMarch will have speakers at the start of the march and also at the end of the march route. The mission is to march in unity with those who believe that America's strength is its diversity. Not just LGBTQ+ people but all Americans and dreamers will be wrapped in the Rainbow Flag with unique, diverse, intersectional voices gathering together. We are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer.  We are people of color.  We are people of different faiths.  We are people of all genders and no gender. We are immigrants. We are dreamers. We are people with disabilities. We are parents. We are allies. The #ResistMarch is to send a clear message that we will resist being divided from each.
