Thousands Attend Stonewall Solidarity Rally [VIDEO]

NY1 reports:

Carrying signs with messages such as “LGBT stands by our Muslim brothers and sisters,” thousands flooded Greenwich Village for a solidarity rally to show support for immigrants, refugees, and others impacted by Donald Trump’s travel ban on seven mostly-Muslim countries.

“Were going to stand up and say all of the things that Trump has put forward,” one protester said. “We’re going to stand for all the people he’s already not welcomed to this country, and we’re going to continue to say that this is not going to be OK.”

The rally was organized by City Councilman Corey Johnson and was held outside the historic Stonewall Inn, the country’s first national monument dedicated to LGBT history, and a site widely regarded as the birthplace of the gay rights movement.

“We wanted to stand here as a community to say if one minority is under attack — if one vulnerable person is under attack — then all of us are under attack,” Johnson said at the rally. A long list of performers, elected officials, and speakers also voiced their concerns about LGBT rights and say they’ll be watching the Trump Administration closely.

I took a few photos of my favorite signs. See them below.
