Here in Dallas, within the last three weeks we have held the 26th annual Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade in Dallas, the Dallas Southern Pride weekend and the Tarrant County Gay Pride Parade. Within the last six months, we have seen the Equality March Texas commemorate the 40th anniversary of Stonewall, and we have seen numerous rallies and protests against the Rainbow Lounge Raid in Fort Worth and in support of gay rights.
And now, thousands are expected in Washington, D.C., this weekend for the National Equality March, the same weekend that the president of the United States will speak at the Human Rights Campaign dinner there.
But why do we still march? I think this video answers that question very well.
