Marriage Equality Rally Sunday March 24th, 2013

Next week,  the Supreme Court will hold historic hearings on
DOMA and Proposition 8.
These cases – which
challenge the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA)
and California’s Proposition 8 – are fundamentally about whether LGBT
Americans can enjoy the same freedoms and opportunities as everyone
else.

March 24, 25,  26 and 27, there will be rallies happening around the US.

 In New York, there is a march this weekend, on Sunday March 24 starting at 1 pm:

On Sunday, March 24, marriage equality
supporters will march from the historic Stonewall Inn to Washington
Square Park
to express support and solidarity with those who fight for
marriage equality across the country, and especially before the Supreme
Court. At Washington Square Park, supporters will rally for freedom for
everyone—including our gay and lesbian family members, friends,
co-workers, and neighbors. The rally will feature flag dancers, singers,
and speeches.
