According to USA Today, Cleve Jones, an activist that worked alongside Harvey Milk and formed the NAMES Project Foundation (AIDS quilt), announced plans for an Oct. 11, march on Washington to demand Congress award the LGBTQIA community equality under the law. The march will coincide with National Coming Out Day and launch a new chapter in the gay rights crusade.
“All of this working together has opened this new chapter,” Jones said. “I intend to make the most of it.”
Jones announced this during a rally at the annual Utah Pride celebration.
There hasn’t been an organization dedicated to the march as of yet, but according to Law Dork 2.0 the National Mall is booked for that date and Congress will not be in session.
