More on the National Equality March

This was one of the most moving speeches/performances of the entire program at the steps of the Capital:

Staceyann Chin is a spoken word poet performing artist and political activist. She wrote a poem about equality and the need to march for our rights in D.C. The video was produced and directed by Jeremy Kotin.

She had the crowd pumped...

Some more pictures:

This was the core gang (L-R) Me, Frank, Michael, and my niece Jessica. We had to stop as we passed the White House for a photo-op... Here is a link to all of Frank's pics on Facebook (you will need a Facebook account to sign on).

Thanks again Jess, for putting up with the three of us in your limited space, YOU ROCK!

No doubt I will have more to say about our trip and experiences as time and energy permits, but that's all for today!

Oh my gosh Tom! LOL, it would have been so cool to meet and say hello! Especially considering we visited the same locals and marched the same route lol. We had a very GAY time was a great experience but a long trip for such a short stay.
