Posted on 09 Jun 2010 at 7:23am

Organizer Daniel Cates sent over an update this morning on the event planned for June 27 in downtown Dallas to commemorate the anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion:

“We will have the official march route for June 27 on Thursday afternoon, but it looks like the rally portion will most likely take place at Founders Plaza at the intersection of Main and N. Market. We have some amazing speakers lined up — Dr. Steven Sprinkle of Brite Divinity School at TCU; Chastity (CD) Kirven and Michael Robinson with GetEQUAL, both of whom were arrested during ENDA demonstrations a month ago; Spencer Young, a student at Tyler Junior College, a member of Tyler Area Gays and a cast member in the Tyler Civic Theatre’s controversial production of “The Laramie Project”; Nonnie Ouch, president of the Texas Tech GSA; Krystal Summers, performer and actress, and star of the Israel Luna film “Ticked-Off Tr*nnies with Knives”; Marla Compton, GEAR coordinator for Resource Center Dallas; Rafael McDonnell, strategic communications director for Resource Center Dallas; Jesse Garcia, president of LULAC’s Dallas Rainbow Council; Mattie Williams of Queer Liberaction, Denton; and of course myself, lol. I will send you an official press release on Thursday as soon as we have our route finalized! Looking forward to this event, I hope you will be taking part!”
