Today's march is said to be a reaction to racial injustices. It arrives on the day the annual March and LA Pride Festival was due to take place, an event canceled due to the pandemic. The organizers of today's march also witnessed struggles that threatened to derail the protest, among other things due to concerns about co-optation and police involvement.
The organization "All Black Lives Matter", whose leaders come from the LGBTQ + community, created the mural with the Trailer Park Group. The installation will be postponed after the event and the city said it will try to find a new home.
“Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera bravely started a movement at the Stonewall Inn in 1969. You have campaigned against systemic racism and bigotry. We have to recognize and acknowledge the many tireless years of service and action by black LGBTQ + people, ”said the All Black Live Matter group in a statement. “The LGBTQ + community needs to expand its support to unite against oppression, police brutality, racism, transphobia and the many other disparities that affect the black community disproportionately.
“We are here to strengthen the voices of the Black Queer and to come together in solidarity. The All Black Lives Matter solidarity march, approved by BLM-LA and the Black Advisory Board, aims to bring the community together to peacefully exercise and heal our First Amendment rights. "
Today's march participants are asked to wear masks and avoid large crowds if they are at risk or have symptoms of COVID-19 infection.
