African-Americans March for LGBT Marriage Rights

2007_05_leimertpark2-thumb.thumbnail.jpgOn Sunday, in Los Angeles’ Leimert Park area, several hundred members of the Black LGBT community and their supporters marched through the historic African American community to peacefully protest the passage of Proposition 8.

The event which featured signs like  "We Are Family Not The Enemy"  and "Black, Gay, Here to Stay," was organized by Love at Work – The Exchange and Reverend Freda Lanoix.

Blogs student Zeal Harris:

Even though I had little time to give to this today, I took time out to go to the march and post the pictures very quickly. I did this because I find it difficult to google or search for images on the internet of Black crowds rallying for Gay rights and representing "NO on Prop 8" and people to see this important representation of courage.
