The NYPD has been advised to prepare for 10,000 – 20,000 Hispanic evangelicals rallying outside Gov. Paterson’s Manhattan office today at 1PM for their self-described anti-gay protest. LGBT folks and our allies are urged to show up too, “not in a fight against our dissenters, but in a gesture of support for Governor Paterson, who has supported us.” Gay organizers are requesting “no hostility” towards the other side. Please keep your signs and talking points positive. Those arriving by train are suggested to meet in Grand Central Terminal at the clock by 12:30pm. From there we will gather at 633 Third Avenue between 40th and 41st streets. State Sen. Ruben Diaz and his group have planned their protest to last for one hour.
This Sunday, May 17, stars of Broadway and Television will come out to perform and rally in support of love, peace and marriage equality. Please join us from 5:00pm – 7:00pm ET on Sixth Avenue at 44th street in Manhattan as we let the sunshine in.
Visit Broadway Impact for a lengthy list stars appearing/performing at the rally. See you there! And feel free to Twitter or Facebook this post and ask your followers to RT it. We need big numbers at both rallies. Tiny URL for this post: http://tinyurl.com/ofxdkx.
