Some argue that The Equality March is an event for the GLBT community, and it is. After all, there some in this country that would just as soon push them back into the closet. I have heard the arguments while working in California during the Proposition 8 debacle. However, this is about more than just GLBT people.
In my mind, this march is about the broader question of whether or not Americans should stand for equal rights for all of us or whether we should target and discriminate against a certain group of us. So it will be interesting to see who shows up here in Washington. If it is the GLBT community, and they show up in mass, that is good. On the other hand, if the broader community shows up, that will be even better.
I will be covering The National Equality March starting at the end of the week and throughout the weekend. Check back for still photos, video, and more. Certainly promises to be interesting.
