PHILADELPHIA, PA (Observer Update) - The Gay American Heroes Foundation will participate in the National Equality Rally at Independence Hall, preceded by The March for Equality on Independence Mall on Sunday, May 3. Gay American Heroes honors members of the LGBT community who have been murdered because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
Fifty members of PFLAG (Parents, Families & Friends of Lesbians and Gays) will March for Equality on Independence Mall carrying enlarged photos of LGBT murder victims of hate crimes provided by the Gay American Heroes Foundation.
"It's time to show the world our HEROES. Our family and friends are being stolen from us because of hate and those who teach it," said Scott Hall, Founder, Gay American Heroes Foundation.
“The March for Equality on Independence Mall followed by the National Equality Rally at Independence Hall could be the largest Equality rally in the nation in 2009,” stated Malcolm Lazin, Executive Director, Equality Forum.
Gay Pioneers Frank Kameny and Lilli Vincenz will lead grassroots activists, organizations, and straight allies in the March for Equality on Independence Mall.
