The march begins at the corner of Halsted and Roscoe at 8PM.

This year’s Matthew Shepard March, cosponsored by Equal Marriage NOW! and the Chicago Anti-Bashing Network, will focus on the broader issues involved in the struggle for equal marriage rights for same sex couples. Besides the 1000+ rights that come with marriage, the issue has become a referendum on the future of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans people in this country.

Keynote address by Wayne Besen, author of “Anything But Straight: Unmasking the Scandals and Lies Behind the Ex-Gay Myth.” (

Other speakers include Karl Warren of Church of the Open Door, Diana Williamson of Illinois Gender Advocates, and Laura Velazquez, Victim Advocacy Coordinator for the Center on Halsted.
