BIENESTAR has been the forefront for Latino LGBTQ advocacy since 1989. Creating a home and a safe haven for many. Our mission has been to provide education and services for a better BIENESTAR for LGBTQ Latino individuals and other underserved communities. We will come together on June 11, 2017 to resist against the violation of all Human Rights. We are strong and love will persist. 


Daniel Zingale, Sr. VP of California Endowment and former Political Director HRC

The health and safety of millions of Californians are threatened by what is happening in Washington DC right now. Our most basic rights now depend on our standing up for each other and for those rights. That is what is happening on June 11th at the 2017 human rights march. In a massive show of strength and solidarity across communities, the march will be a beacon to the entire nation of humanity, courage and hope for the future.

Stay loud California!


Rick Zbur, Executive Driector

The first Pride marches weren't celebrations -- they were political statements by people who refused to be victimized and continue hiding in the shadows.  This year, as we face a presidential administration that represents an unprecedented threat to our hard-won civil rights, we will be joining #ResistMarch on June 11th as a sign of strength, resistance and determination. Whatever comes our way, there's no going back. We must resist.


Lorri L. Jean, CEO

The Los Angeles Pride parade has a long history of political messaging.  But this year certainly warrants converting the entire parade into a protest march.  We must stand strong against the regressive policies of the new Congress and Administration that not only endanger our community's health, but seek to roll back the clock on LGBT freedom, justice and equality.  But this doesn't mean we shouldn't still march in pride and celebration of who we are as a people.  Celebrating in defiance of those who would silence us is a powerful form of protest.   I and the Los Angeles LGBT Center will be there in force.


Craig E. Thompson, CEO

AIDS Project Los Angeles began in 1983 with volunteers taking turns sitting in a closet answering questions about AIDS on a single phone.

We remain committed to ending stigma and discrimination against those who are LGBTQ or living with HIV and to protecting our communities’ access to affordable, quality health care. We are proud to stand strong alongside our friends, families, and fellow activists on June 11th and raise our voices in the affirmation of and continuing fight for civil and human rights.

The ACLU of Southern California is proud to join the #ResistMarch on Sunday, June 11th to stand up loudly and show our community that the ACLU has your back: in the courts, in legislatures, and in the streets. Pride parades are historically rooted in both protest and celebration so transforming the parade into a resistance march this year is quite appropriate given events in Washington and threats to our lives, health, and dignity our community faces. The ACLU of Southern California fought to make sure the very first pride parade in Los Angeles happened in 1970 and we'll be there in force in 2017.


Rachel B. Tiven, CEO

Founded in 1973, just three years after the first Christopher Street West parade, Lambda Legal has served as the foremost legal voice for the LGBTQ community and those living with HIV.

Lambda Legal is proud to stand with #ResistMarch as we take to the streets on June 11th. We must, and will, resist any and all attempts to take away the rights of the LGBTQ community and those living with HIV. Lambda Legal will continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with our sister organizations, community members and allies in the resistance to bigotry. Should we fail to stop backwards policies though protest and reason, make no mistake, Lambda Legal will sue. We are your lawyers and we are not going back!

As a first-generation of San Fernando Valley students who are openly LGBTQ+ in our Latinx immigrant families, it is our duty to unapologetically challenge Number 45. This is an administration that is impacting the most vulnerable within our communities of color, and we will not allow for Number 45 to continue expanding the health disparities that directly impact us. We will show up in solidarity with all intersectional identities in our movement. We will take action mindful of restorative justice and all of our community members currently in detention, deportation proceedings, and those who have been brutalized and murdered for being their authentic selves.

Established in 1985, the West Hollywood Beverly Hills Democratic Club has long fought for the values of our community -- equality, fairness, and accountability. We join #ResistMarch on Sunday, Junto proclaim with one voice that we will not be silenced. That the gains that we have fought so hard to achieve will not be rolled back quietly. That we will continue to speak for the most vulnerable. That we will persist.


For over 40 years, the Stonewall Democratic Club has not only stood for equality for people of LGBTQIA experience, but for equality for all Americans.  The magnitude of the current assault by the Trump Administration and the GOP on civil rights, education, the environment, non-Christian religions, immigrants, science, the main stream media and more is unprecedented in this country.  We cannot allow them to destroy the very institutions providing the protections progressives have fought for over the last century.  Therefore the response to this must be one of complete defiance.


At no time is defiance more visible than when citizens take to the streets in protest and the Stonewall Democratic Club is more than eager to join those who will be marching on June 11th.  We fully, and without reservation, endorse the #ResistMarch and urge all like minded people and organizations to do the same.

Art has always been a expression of vision. A people United shows that they are strong. We may all be different, but we all deserve to be Equal. 


United Equality is an artistic social movement in which subjects bare their bodies with the exception of a single bandanna. The subjects appear bare as a symbol of equality; we are all born into this world pure and equal. The bandannas in the photos all show a hand written message; these messages are inequalities in our society. The subjects of our photos, united, refuse to accept these inequalities. 


Art has always been an expression of vision. We envision a world where we are all united, where we are all equal.

Sheila Xiao

47 years ago, the first LA Pride March broke so many years of silence and powerlessness which hung over the LGBTQ community like a storm. The courage and power of people hitting the streets were like the first rays of light breaking through the clouds. Yet the storm has far from passed: today, more than ever, the gains made by the LGBTQ community and all people facing oppression are under attack, whether from the courts, from the White House or from bigoted vigilantes.


The ANSWER Coalition proudly endorses #ResistMarch because it boldly carries forward that struggle against oppression. We are proud to organize and march with #ResistMarch and encourage anyone who is interested in resisting the Trump administration and oppression in general to join us.

Susan Forrest, Co-Chair

The LA County HIV Drug & Alcohol Task Force is dedicated to resisting and addressing the micro- and macro-aggressions that plague LGBT communities.  We recognize, call out, and try to overturn the forces at play which target all forms of “queerness”, but specifically, and intentionally, single out our African-American sisters and brothers – in particular young black men and black transwomen - usually with  heightened violence. We stand with our LGBT immigrant sisters and brothers who came here – by whatever means necessary – as an act of survival.  We envision and are working toward a world in which all of us can choose to move beyond ‘resilience’ – where we won’t need to hone that skill to stay alive - and we can choose how we want to thrive. As Audre Lorde writes in A Litany for Survival: “For those of us who live at the shoreline | standing upon the constant edges of decision | crucial and alone | for those of us who cannot indulge | the passing dreams of choice | who love in doorways coming and going | in the hours between dawns | looking inward and outward | at once before and after | seeking a now that can breed | futures | like bread in our children's mouths | so their dreams will not reflect | the death of ours;” … We were never meant to survive. #resistmarch #ACTUPLA

CES has been dedicated to building a grassroots multi-racial, multi-ethnic movement committed to securing civil and human rights. A movement that will confront homophobia, xenophobia, sexism, and racism wherever it exists. One of CES’ greatest achievements was leading the effort to create the City of West Hollywood, a city that has been a leader in securing rights, equality, a safe environment and needed services for the LGBTQ+ community. A city that has become the home of LA Pride. The new attacks we face coming from Washington that threaten to wipe out all that has been won and achieved demands the we take action and resist. Thus, CES is honored to stand with other organizations and individuals in supporting and participating in this very important #RESISTMARCH!


Mason Funk, Founder and Executive Director

Inspire Spiritual Community blossomed out of LA’s LGBTQ community.  Our members, staff, volunteers and artists all stand proudly as LGBTQs, friends, family members and allies.  We will march to show solidarity and strength.  We march towards a vision of equality and justice.  We will march in love, as love and through love.  We believe that love is the great healer and so we join this protest to use our words, hands and feet as instruments of peace, transformation, and possibility.  We will march as a reminder that we remain unwilling to accept anything less than the respect that we afford all others. We stand on the shoulders of the trailblazers that went before us and celebrate their legacy by demanding equality.  We will march so that our children won’t have to march.  We will march.

GALAS is proud to join the #ResistMarch on Sunday, June 11th in solidarity with our larger LGBTQ family and their allies. Founded in 1998, GALAS is committed to advancing equality for the LGBTQ in Armenian communities. Only together we can nurture stronger, more inclusive society.

Today, we must rise up to defend our equality. Success breeds complacency. Complacency breeds failure. With LGBTQ concentration camps in current day Chechnya, Russia and attacks on LGBTQ rights here in the U.S., complacency is not an option. We must rise together and be heard loud and clear - we will resist, we will win.


Debra A. Farmer, President/CEO

In 1974, a small group of dedicated feminists and mid-level clinicians came together and started the Women's Health Care Project as part of a larger social change movement in Santa Monica to provide women’s health care. Using the Boston Women's Health Collaborative's "Our Bodies, Ourselves" as inspiration and guidance, today the Women's Health Care Project is Westside Family Health Center, which provides low- and no-cost health care and health education to more than 12,000 women, children and men people on L.A. County's westside. We see patients regardless of race, color, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, gender identification, national origin, disability, veteran status, or any other classification protected by state, federal or local law. And we see all patients regardless of their ability to pay. We join in this march to ensure that we never return to the way it was and that the battles undertaken by our foremothers were not in vain.


Patti Giggans, Executive Director

It is crucial for us to know where we stand, what we stand for and whom we stand with. At Peace Over Violence we stand for peace, justice and equity over violence. It’s in our name, our mission and our vision. However, it’s easier to declare than do. To achieve that vision, we must practice and strive for compassion over judgment, inclusivity over exclusion, intersectionality over separation and fundamentally practice love over hate.

We endeavor to reflect a "Visible Jesus" in all that we say and do, and stand solid in our faith in God as an ALL-LOVING and ALL-INCLUSIVE Father who is eternally RESISTANT to anything that is unlike Him.

The Tweakers Project is a West Hollywood-based, established support system focused on harm reduction surrounding crystal meth use. It is our mission to help individuals find the appropriate means of recovery that will be effective and sustainable. Over the years, we have accomplished this by helping to get people into treatment, identify gaps in services such as mental health funding, advocate for improved HIV and homeless shelter programming, shipping literature, media, and supplies across the country and around the world. Many of our members are in states or cities where programs are limited or non-existent.


It is with great interest that we align ourselves with the mission of the #RESIST March on June 11th. The fight that we have to protect and strengthen what we have in place to continue to help our members must be paramount. Members increasing concerns about the potential loss of healthcare or cuts in funding for what little programming there is could be the difference of staying sober, having mental health episodes, or even worse, committing suicide or hurting someone. We have no choice but to remain firm in our mission of helping our community. And that means we will stand and fight for what is right and good. Please join us on Sunday, June 11th.

The bisexual community has been on the front lines of the fight for LGBTQ liberation since the beginning. From bi+ trans leaders like Miss Major and Sylvia Rivera rose up at Stonewall, to the bisexual "Mother of Pride" Brenda Howard, who helped organize the Christopher Street Gay Liberation Day Parade the following year, our community, though not always visible, hasn't wavered in its commitment to resist oppression in all of its forms.

We are proud to join the #ResistMarch to honor our ancestors and celebrate LA! PRIDE/Christopher Street West's historic mission and purpose. 


LGBTQ people’s visibility has never been greater and yet many people are living in fear and hopelessness. Though we have made enormous strides over the past half-century, homophobia still exists, and the global epidemic of disenfranchised gay teens continues. 



There is an urgent need to educate both our young people and the population-at-large of the positive impact LGBTQ people have on civilization.  Our Oral History Project, Educational Programs, and Participatory Tours help to demystify our diverse community, as well as reduce shame, and empower future generations.


Refuse Fascism Los Angeles is proudly standing with #ResistMarch loudly proclaiming NO! In the Name of Humanity We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America! DRIVE OUT THE TRUMP/PENCE FASCIST Regime! Refuse Fascism is organizing to Drive out the Trump/Pence Regime, not waiting until 2018 or special council to investigate the Trump Campaign, but through calling on millions into the streets day and night demanding and not stopping until this regime is driven from power.  As our Call to Action states: "Fascism foments and relies on xenophobic nationalism, racism, misogyny, and the aggressive re-institution of oppressive 'traditional values.'  In Trump’s election campaign he encouraged and fed on the threat and use of violence to build a movement and come to power...What is crucial to understand is that once in power fascism essentially eliminates traditional democratic rights." (To read the whole call to action: The attacks on the LGBTQ community are outrageous, and can only get worse under this regime, Trump is passing executive orders that allow attacks on the LGBTQ community in the name of religious freedom. Every outrage committed by this regime must be met with greater and greater resistance. We will NOT Normalize Fascism, We will NOT Accommodate, We will not Conciliate or Collaborate with Fascism. See you all in the streets!


Hailing from the San Fernando Valley, Stand Strong Los Angeles/Indivisible grew out of a desire to not only collectively object to and disapprove of the Trump Administration, but to actively resist and disrupt its mission and devastating assault on human rights and social justice.  On June 11th we stand united in solidarity with #ResistMarch to highlight the diversity and the beauty of the LGBTQ+ community.  We will not be deterred from raising our voices and showing our true colors and identities.  The LGBTQ+ community has been and will continue to be a crucial force in the fight for equality and freedom.


INDIVISIBLE groups are part of a larger grassroots movement rising up across America after the 2016 election to defend basic human and civil rights.  An Indivisible group grows organically out of one community.  There are many in the Los Angeles area , throughout California and across the nation, (nearly 6,000 strong) standing up to RESIST the policies coming from the most dangerous President in our nation’s history.  We are on the front lines within local communities to actively RESIST anything originating from the White House and Congress that assaults basic human rights.  We practice Grassroots Advocacy where we attend town hall meetings, make phone calls, send petitions, contact members of Congress and local legislators, march, host events, protest on the streets and at legislators’ offices.  To join, or start your own group, go to

South Bay Cares is proud to be standing in solidarity with members of our diverse Los Angeles community in the #ResistMarch on June 11th.  We believe that “equal" is not separate or conditional and that diversity is our country’s strength.  We fight to end ignorance and hate as it limits humanity’s potential.  We see beauty and worth in all colors of the rainbow and will continue resist until dignity, equality and civil rights are granted to all.
