LA Pride Resist March aims to unite 'anyone who feels they are under threat'

LA Pride Resist March aims to unite 'anyone who feels they are under threat'
- What’s known annually as a celebration of progress made within the LGBTQ community, the LA Pride parade will instead become the Resist March Sunday in Hollywood. Organizers want people from all communities to feel they can come together to stand up for equal rights and defend civil liberties.

“This year, the LGBTQ community is lending our giant iconic, rainbow flag to anyone who feels they are under threat,” said Resist March founder Brian Pendleton. The goal, he added, is to unite people from all faiths, races, and backgrounds who believe the advances made in the LGBTQ community and beyond are in jeopardy as a result of President Donald Trump’s policies on everything from immigration to travel bans to transgender youths at schools, he said.
