Hella Oakland Street Party 

Wed., June 26 2013
Supporters of marriage equality in the East Bay will be gathering to rally and dance (if ruling is favorable in legalizing queer marriage) in response to the decisions from the U.S. Supreme Court in the cases pertaining to California’s Proposition 8 and the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). The gathering will go on regardless of the final outcome in each of the cases.

This is a historic moment for the LGBT community. These gatherings will show that support for equality runs deep in every community across this nation – regardless of one’s age, race, religious beliefs or political affiliations. The gathering will be an opportunity for the East Bay community to process the Court’s rulings collectively.

Wednesday, June 26

5:30pm - 8:00pm
After party at Bench and Bar,
510 17th Street

Uptown Art Sculpture Park,

The East Bay gathering is a part of a larger national movement, the United for Marriage coalition. Gatherings will be taking place all across the nation – from Oregon to Kansas and Wisconsin to South Carolina. For more information on the Oakland event, visit our Facebook page.

We will gather regardless of the type of decision.
