National Equality March Route Set

The National Equality March route for Oct 11th has been approved. Below is the map and instructions for those participating in the march for LGBT liberation.

Gather on 15th Street at “I” (Eye) Street – we will be staging in the street and 15th between “I” Street and “M” Street will be closed for this purpose. The March will kick off from 15th and I Street, right near McPherson Square (Metro stops close by are at McPherson Square, Farragut West – both Blue and Orange Lines, and Farragut North – Red Line)

From there we go South on 15th to “H” Street

West on “H” Street to 17th Street

South on 17th Street to Pennsylvania Avenue (closed portion)

Pennsylvania Avenue (closed portion) – right past the White House – to 15th Street

South on 15th Street to Pennsylvania Avenue South

East on Pennsylvania Avenue South, all the way to the U.S. Capitol West Lawn for the National Equality March Rally.

The approximate distance is 2.33 miles from start to finish. Be sure and get your Metro passes as soon as you get into town, to avoid hour long lines that form at the ticket kiosks during larger demonstrations.
