Equality March and PRIDE Fest

This weekend was the Baton Rouge Equality March and PRIDE Fest. It was a fairly busy weekend for me, and I wasn’t able to attend either event for the entire time, but I did go for a bit and take pictures while I was there. Here are the best of those pictures.

 

Despite not being there for the entirety of both events, I was really glad I went for the time that I did. It was a really awesome day, and everyone had a really positive attitude. There was a sense of community that only seemed to get stronger as the day went on. However, it was also a reminder that, as much fun as we may have on a Saturday afternoon, on Monday there are thousands of people across Louisiana who will return to workplaces where they could be fired for their sexuality or gender identity. There are thousands who cannot marry the person they love, or adopt the children that they are raising. We still have a lot of work to do to make sure that everyone in our state has the same rights and protections under the law. Please consider joining one of the LGBT advocacy groups such as Forum For Equality, or Capital City Alliance, and joining the fight to make a better Louisiana for everyone who lives here.
