Hundreds March for Gay Rights at Wisconsin Capitol

Madison

Inspired by the National Equality March, approximately 200 marched on the Wisconsin Capitol Saturday demanding equal rights for LGBT people, the Badger Herald reports:

"About 330 people confirmed on Facebook, and about 800 said they might attend. The march was organized by Unified for Equality, a group composed of Madison area organizations supporting equal rights for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered community. Sponsors included the Madison Area Transgender Association, MATC Pride Alliance, International Socialist Organization, UW Madison LGBTI Equality Now, OutReach/OutThere, UW Whitewater P.E.A.C.E. and UW Whitewater IMPACT."
