GLN ANNUAL MATTHEW SHEPARD MARCH NEWS

Long Time Civil Rights Advocate Cliff Kelley to Keynote 9th Annual Matthew Shepard Rally!

We are very pleased to announce that this year's Matthew Shepard March & Rally for Lesbian, Gay, Bi & Trans Freedom will feature popular WVON talk show host Cliff Kelley as its keynote speaker.

Besides being a long time advocate for civil rights, and against police brutality and war, Cliff has the added distinction of taking the lead in being the first to introduce a gay rights ordinance into the Chicago City Council -- way back in 1973! He courageously speaks out against those who would try to drive a wedge between the African American and gay communities.

Mark your calendars! / Call for volunteers!

This year's Matthew Shepard March & Rally will begin at 8 PM sharp, Saturday, October 7th at the 7-11 parking lot at the corner of Halsted & Roscoe Streets. Over the next few months we will all the help we can get to distribute publicity around the Chicago area. If you would like to help out, please phone Andy at 773-209-1187 or email LGBTliberation@aol.com
