March For Equality
Originally printed 3/21/2013 (Issue 2112 - Between The Lines News)
On March 26 and 27, the U.S. Supreme Court will consider two cases that are fundamentally about whether LGBT Americans should have the same rights as everyone else. Those two cases will decide the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and Proposition 8. Several cities are planning to gather across the state. In Grand Rapids, on March 23 (this Saturday), in coordination with the March for Equality-Columbus, Ohio and United for Marriage, Grand Rapids, a March For Equality will take place from 12 - 2 p.m. People are asked to meet in the parking lot of Rumors Night Club, located at 69 South Division at noon, and march through the city. The march will proceed north on Division Ave. to Pearl Street, West on Pearl Street to Monroe Ave, south on Monroe street to Fulton street, East on Fulton Street to Division Ave, and finally south on Division Ave. to return to Rumors parking lot. Organizers stress participants need to obey pedestrian traffic laws, which includes not blocking intersections or driveways along the route. Organizers said, "This is not a rally, just a simple peaceful march through the city." They encourage participants to bring signs to show their pride.
