For the most up-to-date info on this march, visit our Facebook page.
On June 11, 2017, an Equality March for Unity & Pride will be held in Washington, D.C. and sister events will be held in cities around the world. Twin Cities Pride is proud to lead this effort in Minneapolis/St. Paul.
Mobilizing LGBTQ+ communities, our loved ones and our allies – with particular focus on those who have been actively silenced and neglected – in the fight to affirm and protect our rights, our safety and our full humanity.
The Twin Cities Equality March inspires people of all gender and sexual identities to fight for love, justice, inclusion, and equity in a way that unites our community and creates space for people to show up as their whole, true, and authentic selves. More information about the goals of this march can be found here: 2017 TC Equality March Mission & Platform.
