In another protest of massive numbers the LGBT people of NYC and their allies rallied in support of equal rights and national recognition. The event was as packed and inspiring as Wednesday night's event at the LDS Chruch in uptown Manhattan.
With more time to organize and taking notes from Wednesday's event this protest honed in on what is happening within NY politics, who we should keep our eyes on and to further carry the fight for our national equal rights.
There were significant decline in Mormon-related signs, which I think is a step in the right direction, and a notable surge in signs relating to general equality, unity and upbeat remarks on hypocrisy. The crowd covered the spectrum of age ranges and races with a special shout out to those in their early twenties. Speakers ranged from politicians to local celebrities and artists and throughout the two hour event the pulse in the crowd remained attentive and energized.
This tidal wave is growing and we are all riding it's crest.
