Equality March In Palm Springs

Posted: Updated:
Palm Springs, CA -

A march for equality and unity,  in step with hundreds of thousands participating in equality marches across the country.
The month of June has become a time to reflect. Their stories begin differently.
"I came out last October as transgender woman. I had very masculine jobs: firefighter, correctional officers, construction worker, you name it, all masculine. After my sons wedding, just no more, I can't do this anymore, I have to be the woman I always wanted to be," said Joanie Spears of Palm Springs.
But many share a feeling of uneasiness in the current political tide.
"I thought everything was over, I was very comfortable with the past president Barrack Obama and right now I am not secure anymore," said Sebastiano Grasso from Morongo Valley.
"In our current political climate, I think its really important to show up to equality events, to show we're not going to allow hate to be normalized or tolerated," said Christy Cantrell, a Palm Springs resident.
Hundreds marched together to Arenas Road, safe place for many in the LGBTQ community.
