LGBT Activist Invites President Obama to National Equality March
Equal rights are not a "gay" issue. They are about our shared human rights: safety in our schools and jobs, equitable healthcare and housing, and protection for our families, to name a few.
American AIDS and LGBT rights activist Cleve Jones has formally invited President Obama to the National Equality March, scheduled for October 11 in Washington, D.C. The contents of the letter, include the excerpt above, and invite President Obama to both attend and speak at the event.
With hope in our hearts, we invite you to join us on the west lawn of the Capitol on October 11th. We ask you to take the microphone and renew our faith that Washington will work with us, and not against us. We urge you to remind the world that we are welcome members of this nation. We invite you to stand with us in pride.
The National Equality March seeks equal protection for lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender people in all matters governed by civil law in all 50 states.
At this writing, it is not known whether President Obama will accept the invitation to attend the National Equality March.
