Several of us from PFLAG KC marched on Saturday, January 21, 2017. It was a beautiful day in Kansas City. One of our members was there early and saved us a great spot. Shout Out to Judy! The speakers were amazing and there were a lot of people with positive energy and respectful intentions! I was proud to have a daughter join me in Kansas City, a daughter marching in D.C., and a daughter marching in Portland, Oregon. Millions of people marching around the world for the same reasons. Basic Human Rights!
The Unity Principles of the “Women’s March on Washington” sets out that Women’s Rights are Human Rights and Human Rights are Women’s Rights. Under LGBTQIA it states: “We firmly declare that LGBTQIA Rights are Human Rights and that it is our obligation to uplift, expand and protect the rights of our gay, lesbian, bi, queer, trans or gender non-conforming brothers, sisters and siblings. We must have the power to control our bodies and be free from gender norms, expectations and stereotypes.” https://www.womensmarch.com/principles/
We need to keep using our voices in such a positive manner! We are stronger together!
