Watch: Black LGBT Groups March in L.A. MLK Day Parade


No More Down Low sends along this video of several Black LGBT groups marching in Los Angeles' Kingdom Day Parade in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Mlk Writes NMDL:

"This was the third consecutive year that the Barbara Jordan/ Bayard Rustin Coalition, The Here to Stay Coalition, Black Lesbians United, In the Meantime Men’s Group, At the Beach Los Angeles Black Pride, and over 50 same gender-loving/LGBT activists marched down Crenshaw and King Blvd. to promote acceptance, visibility, dialogue and community-building as a strategy to fight homophobia and promote more awareness of Black LGBT issues within the Black community."
