SF man plans his own Equality March

Saying he’s “dismayed” that San Francisco isn’t one of the cities set to have an Equality March on Sunday (June 11), a gay city resident is planning to march alone.

“The march would have coincided with the National march on Washington and marches around the world,” Nelson said. “The marches are intended to bring focus to the many inequalities faced by LGBTQ communities.”

When he heard that San Francisco wouldn’t be having a march, he thought about taking part in the one planned for San Jose, but then he decided he would walk alone. He said he’ll start at 1 p.m. and head up Market Street from Castro Street to City Hall.

Because he doesn’t have a permit for a march, Nelson’s not requesting other people join him, but he encourages people to see him to cheer him on or honk their horn.
