WORD joins LGBT Pride Parades across the country

WORD LA at Long Beach Pride

WORD LA at LA Pride
June 9, Los Angeles, CA

Join WORD and community members as we march for full equality in LGBT Pride parades across the country. We will demand full federal equality in every sphere of society.

Pride has its origins in the militant and fighting LGBT movement of the 1960s and 1970s, as thousands of LGBT people poured into the streets demanding their rights. We will continue that struggle as WORD joins Pride across the country.

Now is the time for us to continue the struggle for full equality for all, by taking to the streets together in a united movement. March with WORD and demand "Equality for women, equality for LGBT people, equality for ALL!"
