People are coming together today to celebrate the defeat of that vile orange clown, Donald Trump.

Organized by the People’s March & the Rally for Racial Equity & Justice, this rally will be taking place at 2pm at Jane Warner Plaza, at Castro and 17th Streets in San Francisco. The press release described it as the LGBTQ+ community & allies creating a safe space for the community to celebrate together. Hell yes!

Considering there is still a pandemic going on, event organizers ask all attendees to follow state & local health protocols regarding COVID-19: Wear a mask, maintain social distancing, and use hand sanitizer. Masks will not be provided. 

Co-organizer Alex U. Inn says “It’s a time to exhale and to be joyful, knowing that we have lots of work to do ahead. We all need to work hard to reunite this country because we are better than this.”

The other co-organizer Gregg Cassin says”We will gather in the Castro as a community, as ONE community united! We will gather to celebrate a hard-fought battle and commit to repairing this country, committing to addressing racial injustice, climate change, women’s equality, LGBTQ+ issues…all of it!”

No formal program is planned. DJs will be on site to provide music for dancing. Community leaders may speak at intervals throughout the event.
