Philly Queer March for Black Lives

I have just come from the Philly Queer March for Black Lives. The fight for the rights of one group is intersected with the fight for the rights of other groups; the same forces are arrayed against them. Here are some photos I took at the opening rally, at Love Park:

…and this one…
…and this, the new LGBTQ flag.
A sentiment shared by everyone.
