2012 Worldwide LGBT Civil Rights Marches
PRELIMINARY PRESS RELEASE
There is currently scheduled a Worldwide LGBT Civil Rights March in 2012 that is already gathering sponsors and supporters by the thousands, as well as initial LEAD ORGANIZERS from around the world. The march will be held worldwide at various locations at the same time, as well as an online news media event that will keep everyone posted on the events at all locations. This event has been created by the fastest growing LGBT Equality group around, with members from around the world:
LET’S REACH 1 MILLION PEOPLE CAMPAIGN…It’s a start! LGBT EQUALITY
Our international committee, publicist, and legal counsel on retainer have been working several months in the preliminary preparations for this Historic Worldwide LGBT Event and we have recently selected LEAD ORGANIZERS for a few of the locations worldwide with many area locations still open at the moment.
We are working a Coalition with the various Occupy Movements with the LGBT in the LEAD on this one and are getting favorable responses, as well as favorable responses from all LGBT Occupy & Equality Affiliates, LGBT Organizations and most other LGBT Groups from around the world!
This is an event that everyone needs to put aside all differences and come together as one unified LGBT Community, along with our straight allies, as this event will definitely drive home the point WORLDWIDE that the LGBT are poised to DEMAND and ACQUIRE our FULL CIVIL RIGHTS that all other sectors of society enjoy, as well as LIVE WITHIN THE SAME LAWS and GUARANTEES enjoyed by all other citizens, including MARRIAGE EQUALITY. Egos have no place in this event.
All PARTICIPANTS/LEAD ORGANIZERS will be recognized and included, along with all major events of the march and coverage thereof, in a Published Book with all rights already secured and will be made available FREE (for a limited time) to all schools requesting a copy for inclusion in their school library. Current sponsor commitments must be adhered to, which includes, but not limited to, the Registration of all participating organizations with the intent to participate in this Historic Event, along with the LEAD ORGANIZER for that area, on the following event page (instructions for registration included in the “More Info” section on the event page).
Here is a portion of correspondence sent to many of the local Occupy Movement Affiliates (for your use if desired):
The LGBT people desire your assistance. While there are thousands of LGBT individuals who support and are there for the OCCUPY MOVEMENTS in many, many locations, the majority of our direct issues are not talked about in the media or elsewhere as LGBT issues are not being singled out due to the main economic policies being advocated at the OCCUPY MOVEMENTS helping all, including the LGBT. The LGBT will be having our own Worldwide LGBT Civil Rights Marches everywhere around the world at the same time and we really desire and welcome your assistance and participation in these marches. We are extending an open invitation to all OCCUPY ACTIVISTS to participate in these marches around the world and while the lead in these marches will be the LGBT, we welcome your involvement and coalition to benefit your issues as well.
We have already sent letters and emails out to some of the more well known LGBT Activists and others in numerous areas worldwide to garner their support and the response has been phenomenal!
We have had a few question the March being held on April 21, 2012, the day before Earth Day on April 22, 2012. This was carefully planned and selected with the following statement made by our publicist:
How appropriate is the 2012 WORLDWIDE LGBT Civil Rights MARCH to be on April 21, 2012, the day before EARTH DAY on April 22, 2012; DIFFERENT DAYS, but the VERY SAME WEEKEND. It is EXTREMELY appropriate.
2012 is the 42nd Anniversary of EARTH DAY and 2012 is also the 42nd Anniversary of the very First GAY PRIDE PARADE taking place in New York City with more than 2,000 LGBT marching (which just happened to be the 1 year anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising)!
EARTH DAY 2012 promotes environmental awareness and will focus on BUILDING THE ENVIRONMENTAL MOVEMENT & ENGAGING NEW ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVISTS AROUND THE GLOBE!
The 2012 WORLDWIDE LGBT Civil Rights MARCH will focus on the RENEWED LGBT MOVEMENT & ENGAGING LGBT CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS AROUND THE GLOBE!
There is NO BETTER TIME to have the 2012 WORLDWIDE LGBT Civil Rights MARCH and the timing of it on the same weekend (but different days) of EARTH DAY 2012 is NOT ONLY EXTREMELY APPROPRIATE, but will show the WORLD the importance of PROTECTING BOTH THE EARTH and its INHABITANTS EQUALLY, as well as show the WORLD the importance of PROTECTING the UNALIENABLE BIRTH RIGHT of every being living together on PLANET EARTH!
SPECIAL NOTE:We look forward to hearing back from you and adding you as an organizer (along with your organization, if any), event sponsor/promoter, or as one of our media outlets. Who knows YOU could be that one we select to be the LEAD ORGANIZER in your area/city and your area/city just might be the next location Registered to HOLD one of the 2012 WORLDWIDE LGBT Civil Rights Marches…
