June 11, 2017, from 1 PM to 3 PM Rally in conjunction with the worldwide Equality March for Unity and Pride,  at Clematis and Dixie in West Palm Beach.  (Note: new location, by WPB City Hall)
 
A list of dynamic speakers is in formation.  There will be a tribute to the victims and survivors of the June 12 Pulse massacre 1 year ago in Orlando.
 
The March’s mission and worldwide activities can be found at http://www.equalitymarch2017.org/.      
Brief synopsis:
“The Equality March for Unity and Pride will give voice to the concerns of LGBTQ Communities and Allies about the current political landscape and how it is contributing to persecution and discrimination.
   The March, and sister events across the country, will bring attention to those in our communities who are targeted due to immigration status, ethnicity, religion, skin color, gender and disability.
   We affirm and celebrate that we are a mix of diverse communities.  Lack of unity has caused many of our needs to be neglected or ignored.  But for 2017 and beyond, we will come together for rights and dignity for all.”
