LGBT March the Latest in Series of Anti-Trump Protests

March 8th, 2017 5:32 PM

The left’s anti-Trump marches won’t stop at the end of March.

Following the success of January 21’s Women’s March, the organizers planned March 8’s “Day Without a Woman.” Falling intentionally on International Women’s Day, the day included strikes, abstinence from social media use and spending, and a protest outside of the White House.

Just two days later, the Native community intends to march from the mall to the President’s residence to advance tribal rights.

But the protests will continue through the year. Back in January, gay activist David Bruinooge was inspired by the Women’s March to plan a similar protest for LGBT rights under the Trump administration.

“We think it’s very important that we have a united front and that all our voices are heard,” Bruinooge told the Huffington Post. “We encourage friends, family and allies of all regions, all races and all identities to participate.” 

The Facebook page for the June 11 event already boasts more than 30,000 attendees, and another 110,000 are interested in joining. The march will take place during DC Pride Week, a time of pro-LGBT festivities sponsored by the Capital Pride Alliance.

And for those who can’t make it to DC, Bruinooge suggests regional sister marches, a model proven successful by the Women’s March.
