Bronx Gay and Straight Unity Rally Set for Saturday

Gay and straight leaders in the Bronx are combining forces for the LGBTQS (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning and Straight) United as One March and Rally to counteract what they see is a surge in violence against the gay community.

The two-mile march will travel from Bronx Community College, the starting point for a similar (but silent) rally a few weeks ago, travel to 1901 Osborne Place, the site of the recent and gruesome anti-gay attacks in Morris Heights, and then culminate on the steps of the Bronx County Courthouse.

The rally will assemble around 11 a.m. at BCC, University Avenue and 181st Street.

In a press release, organizers sited the anti-gay attacks at Osborne Place and Mnahattan's Stonewall Inn, as well as attacks on straight people for simply "looking" gay.
