march on dc

The Women’s March was only two months ago and I remember more than a few hurt white feelings over signs and posters and memes that asked if all this solidarity was real or just for white women to feel good about themselves.

Over a dozen Black & Latina girls are missing and I don’t see any white women in these pictures. What happened, Susan?

one of my friends said she saw eric andre at the women’s march in DC. she asked “are you eric andre or do you just look like him?” and he said “i don’t speak english, i just memorized this sentence phonetically” and left

Pride parades are known for glitter, upbeat music and happy people dancing on bright floats, as they make their way through loud, colorful crowds.

This was not a pride parade.

“Stonewall began as a riot,” Sian Lewis, a member of the D.C. planning committee for the Equality March, said, as “YMCA” by the Village People blared from large, black speakers behind her.

“We are living the legacy of Stonewall,” she said.

Crowds stretched for blocks across the parade route near the National Mall, and while Lewis said they anticipated more than 200,000 marchers, she said the number of people who showed up blew their expectations.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, straight, white, black, Latinx Americans and people from across the world all marched in solidarity Sunday to protest how they believe the Trump administration could negatively affect the LGBT community.

Participants were all ages. And they came from all over the world, on two feet or more.

The political march for equality comes one day after the Pride Parade in D.C., while marches and protests are ongoing around the country this June for Pride month.

And many participants feel as if this time in history is a turning point for the LGBT movement. They see it as an opportunity to note that while LGBT rights increased over the past decade, there’s still a long way to go.

Attendees from across the country descended on the nation’s capital to speak up for science.

The March for Science unfolded on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, and in multiple cities around the world. Coinciding with Earth Day, the event drew researchers, educators and scientifically-minded people.

The event kicked off with open teaching sessions on the Mall, followed by a rally near the Washington Monument, and then a march that traveled to the U.S. Capitol building.

NPR spoke to some of the participants about why they decided to attend the March for Science.
