We are a benefactor for the march and we are proudly displayed as an ally.
Join us with Capital City Alliance and the rest of Louisiana's LGBTQ citizens and their allies for a march to the state capitol and rally on the capitol steps. We will meet on North Boulevard and walk about 2/3 of a mile to the capitol for the rally.
