October 9, 2010
For the last 40 years the LGBTQ community has been the victim of hate crimes, bullying, and inequality. Recently, there has been a influx of reported hate crimes, bias bullying, suicides, and murders where the victims have been LGBTQ. When is enough?
When elected officials and government give Americans the impression that the LGBTQ community are unworthy of equality, dignity, and human rights, Americans believe it.
On October 9, 2010, our community came out in huge numbers to support, stregthen, and fight for one another. We stood up for our rights and showed that we are not less than anybody else. We deserve to be treated with respect and equally. We will not be bullied, we will not be assaulted any longer. We took back the night.
