PHOTO ESSAY: LGBTQs Respond To The Assault On Our Rights At The National Equality March

June 22, 2017

The Equality March 2017

It was a demonstration of the LGBTQ community's strength and solidarity in an era of political upheaval and fear.

On Sunday, June 11th, thousands of LGBTQ people and allies descended on Washington, D.C. for the National Equality March for Unity and Pride. But this march wasn’t intended as a Pride “celebration”: It was a demonstration of the LGBTQ community’s strength and solidarity in an era of political upheaval and fear. It was a protest, a massive collective battle cry reminding us that, given the resurgence of hate and intolerance in America and the Trump administration’s assault on existing LGBTQ legitimacy and legal protections, we must—and will—continue to virulently fight for equality, justice and our rights.

Photojournalist Donna Aceto captured these images that reflect how the participants in the National Equality March evoked the true spirit of Pride by taking action, marching for a good today and a better tomorrow, and inspiring us all to be both our authentic selves and the change we wish to see in the world. We came, we saw, and we made it impossible for Washington not to see (and hear) us right back.
