March on Washington 2009: No Delays! No Excuses!

Calls are being made for a march on Washington: here by David Mixner, here by Cleve Jones via Twitter, and many others. I fully support this call and will be there on October 10 & 11. Mixner has called for 12,000 people to march from the Pentagon to the White House on Friday. This represents the approximate number of people that have been discharged under DADT. Jones has suggested keeping it simple with one message: “Full Equality Now – full and equal protection under the law for LGBT people in all matters governed by civil law in all 50 states.”

I would like to take this opportunity to make a suggestion of my own: On one of the days, surround the three branches of government: executive (White House), legislative (Capitol) and judicial (Supreme Court). Surround each building with a continuous line of people and march! March until there are grooves in the sidewalks! March all day, march all night! Imagine a continuous line of LGBT individuals and their supporters confronting all three branches of our government. Can you hear the cry at the White House? “Full Equality Now!” Can you hear the cry at the Capitol? “Full Equality Now!” Can you hear the cry at the Supreme Court? “Full Equality Now!”

“Full Equality Now!” No Delays! No Excuses!
