Rally at the Courthouse

Protesters head down Main Street on their way to the Fort Worth City Hall during Sunday’s rally at the Tarrant County Courthouse.

Queer Liberaction held another rally on the steps of the Tarrant County Courthouse Sunday evening, July 12, and I would say about 150 to 200 people were there.

(No, Andrew, I didn’t personally count each and every person. I did count about 85 people on one side of the steps, and there were at least that many, or more, right in front of the steps and on the other side. This is my estimate, not QL’s and I haven’t even talked to them about how many were there.)

Speakers included Rick Vanderslice and the Rev. Steven Sprinkle, who called on the LGBT community to stand firm in demanding answers regarding the June 28 raid on The Rainbow Lounge.

After about an hour at the courthouse — which included Rich McPhee reading and he and Blake Wilkinson of Queer Liberaction posting a list of demands on the courthouse door — the large majority of the crowd marched down Main Street to the Fort Worth City Hall on Throckmorton to post a copy of those demands on the door there.

Here are more photos of the event:
