    i went to the web page and more specifically the ‘Mission & Vision’ statement… dunno what LGBTQIA is… i was glad to see there were no specific political platforms expressed, but i’m afraid that this whole effort seems like a masked Leftist/Progressivist initiative – while nods and acknowledgements are given to Muslims and just about any lifestyle, racial, religious, etc. membership, there was not one single mention of the words ‘tolerance,’ ‘respect,’ or freedom of speech – this whole thing seems like an anti-Trump initiative – looks like the makeup of the marchers will skew significantly Left and away from American values – so good luck with the march – i hope it doesn’t turn into a spectacle

      Perhaps you should look up what LGBTQIA means, so as not to be intolerant yourself? And, as you clearly have formed an opinion based only on reading one page of a website & nothing else, I’d say your mind was not terribly open before ya got here, honey, and you weren’t planning on opening it & participating anyway. Nice try to condescend – not really, it was amusing, if utterly transparent. Not really, even – just barely amusing. Hugs from a friendly dyke in Tampa 🙂

        It seems that since he whom shall not be named is permitted to name call and condescend his followers do the same. Atrocious behavior

    It is a march for progress and equality. All are welcome. We are concerned about the hostility of the new administration and his old rich white men cabinet selection. This does not represent our country. We have a wide variety of qualified candidates of various cultures and gender. A march is planned in NYC the night previous to the inaugural in protest of policies. We merely want attention called to our diverse population and precious environment. Additionally, the name calling and belittling must stop. It is appalling etiquette and a terrible example his minions seem to follow.
