An estimated crowd of between 1,000 and 2,500 people are expected to assemble in a park next to the U.S. Capitol on Saturday, April 21, to kick off one of at least 30 Worldwide LGBT Civil Rights Marches set to take place in the U.S. and abroad, according to a D.C. police parade permit obtained by organizers of the event.
The D.C. march is scheduled to begin with a 10:45 a.m. rally at Upper Senate Park located at Constitution and Delaware avenues across the street from the U.S. Capitol. Among those scheduled to speak at the rally is D.C. gay activist Brian Watson, an official with the local group Transgender Health Empowerment.
The march, which is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m., will travel from Upper Senate Park along Constitution Avenue to 15th Street, N.W, according to information posted on the march’s website. From there it will travel west to Pennsylvania Avenue and turn right again to head east along Pennsylvania Avenue to Third Street, N.W., where it will end.
