National Equality March: Photos From October 11, 2009

Yesterday's National Equality March in Washington D.C. was the largest LGBT action gathering in almost a decade. Tens of thousands marched on the nation's capital to support the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and equal marriage rights for all.

The photos below illustrate the prominence and immediacy of this movement. Have more photos of the event? Send them to and we'll post them!
