11 photos from LA Pride that show the #ResistMarch in motion
As the people of Los Angeles hit the streets on Sunday to support the LGBTQ community, the city's pride parade was replaced by the #ResistMarch.
The 2017 march was focused on opposing Trump's policies. Marchers made their feelings known with signs, shirts and the overall message of resistance.
Countless celebrities spoke at the march, including RuPaul, Margaret Cho, America Ferrera and more. The march was inspired by the women's marches that took place across the country following Donald Trump's inauguration.
Brian Pendleton, who organized this year's event, said the march was for anyone who felt that their rights were threatened under Trump.
This year, the LGBTQ community is lending our iconic rainbow flag to anyone who feels like their rights are under threat and to anyone who feels like America’s strength is its diversity. The political climate we find ourselves in has driven us to galvanize and unite.
"We're people," marcher Mary Demasters told Reuters. "We deserve to be treated like people, all of us, no matter what our differences are. We're all people."
As people came together, the march delivered some powerful imagery that exemplified resistance. Check out 11 photos from Sunday's Los Angeles pride event:
