LGBT+ Step Up in Solidarity for Black Lives Matter
It's time we step up and speak out for our black community. This being PRIDE month, and knowing that we wouldn't have half of the rights we have today without Marsha P. Johnson everyone else who rioted at Stonewall, it's only right that we take this opportunity and let everyone know where we stand. This isn't about us anymore, it's about the dangers the black community is facing right now. If PRIDE is about anything it's about HOPE! As Harvey Milk once said, "I know that you cannot live on hope alone, but without it, life is not worth living. And you…And you…And you…Gotta give em hope." So let's show up and show out this Sunday and give them hope.
To our black community members. How can we do this better? Is there more that you need? Give us your opinions and insight. We only want to help.
A few reminders.....
1. This isn't pride, this is a protest. Please remember to keep the focus on the issue at hand, BLACK LIVES MATTER.
2. We are showing up in a support role. Our job right now is to amplify the black voices in our community and throughout the world.
3. Wear a mask! Please! If you don't feel well, stay home. We get it.
4. This march isn't exclusively LGBTQIA+ everyone is welcome! especially our allies.
5. In general, the protests during the day are safe and peaceful but that doesn't mean we can guarantee that. We know we need to stay together and respect the curfew. We are working to have people on call to provide rides if needed.
