Call to Action on May 3
in Philadelphia

The National Equality Rally will take place May 3 in Philadelphia at Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, the same site where gay pioneers including Barbara Gittings and Frank Kameny launched several protests in the 1960s.

The Equality Forum is spearheading a rally at the site of several history-making events. The National Equality Rally will take place May 3 in Philadelphia at Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, the same site where gay pioneers including Barbara Gittings and Frank Kameny launched several protests in the 1960s.

This year's call to action is to demand an employment non-discrimination act and hate-crimes legislation that protects both sexual orientation and gender identity, and the repeal of both "don't ask, don't tell" and the Defense of Marriage Act. The group will also call on Congress and President Barack Obama to support LGBT health issues and marriage equality.

Here is a video from the group on what the day entails.
