(Information from Gay Central Valley)
Marriage Equality Rally
Tuesday, April 28th 5-7pm
The history of marriage equality in the United States could very well be coming to a close...
On Tuesday April 28th the Supreme Court will hear arguments in marriage cases involving Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and Tennessee. This could very well be the last marriage equality case the Supreme Court takes on, and all signs point to an overwhelming victory for LGBT Americans. The decision won't be announced until sometime in June of this year, but this is history in the making. We could have nationwide marriage equality by the middle of this year!
Fresno joins the many other rallies and vigils across the country on Tuesday, April 28th. We will gather in front of the Robert E Coyle Federal Courthouse (2500 Tulare Street) in downtown Fresno to show our support for marriage equality and to raise our voices in solidarity.
Gay Central Valley and the Fresno LGBT Community Center are hosting this event.
The rally will run from 5pm-7pm.
Local media is invited.
There will be brief speeches from local individuals.

We invite the entire community to participate in this monumental event. This could very well be one of the last gatherings celebrating marriage equality as it moves through the court system.
This is history, and we want you to be a part of it.
Please invite your friends and family.
During the day on Tuesday, April 28th we will be hosting a sign making event at the Fresno LGBT Community Center from Noon to 4pm. We will provide some supplies but feel free to bring your own as well. The Community Center is located at 1067 N Fulton in the Tower District.
