To show solidarity with the Occupy LA movement and the 99% of Americans the movement asserts is a majority unrepresented by the political and financial power of the 1%, a group of members of the LGBT community will stage a march in West Hollywood tomorrow.


The march will start at Plummer Park in West Hollywood, go down Santa Monica Blvd to the Matthew Shepard Triangle at Crescent Heights, have a brief rally there, then march back to Plummer Park for speeches. The Metropolitan Community Church/Los Angeles’ Social Justice Ministry is the primary organizer, working with members of Occupy LA.

The march will begin at 10 a.m. and is expected to finish at 1 p.m.
