Following an attack on two gay men last month, District residents and members of the Lesbian Gay Bisexual & Trangender community have organized a rally, safety walk and “moment of noise” set for Thursday night.
The We Shall Not Be Moved rally and safety walk is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. at the Big Bear Cafe, 1700 1st Street NW, for a short rally. Supporters will then walk to the location of the attack on Michael Roike and Michael Hall on Third Street NE for a “moment of noise,” according to the group’s Facebook page.
“No one should have to walk in fear on the streets of DC because of hate. Whenever any community is targeted, we all have a duty to stand together, ” the group said.
