Black gay leaders have given up hope that their issues will be included in this fall's Million More March, the tenth anniversary celebration of the Million Man March. Instead, the gay leaders are planning an alternative rally in Washington, DC at the same time as the Million event. Million More March organizers should not be surprised. Though they offered empty promises of inclusion to the LGBT community, leaders of the Million More March have recently been making derogatory and homophobic remarks.
One has to wonder if the LGBT community simply misunderstood the invitation from Million More March organizers. Maybe the Million More organizers actually invited the gays to be marched on. See, then it would all make sense.
