UPDATE: New photos after the jump.
An amazing and energetic of more than 10,000 LGBT people and allies marched from the U.S. to the White House to demand full equality for LGBT people. The rally was part of the National Day of Protest sparked by the passage of anti-gay amendments in Arkansas, Arizona, California and Florida.
The crowd was on of the most diverse that I have seen for a LGBT gathering in DC with gay and straight, young and old, Black, white, Latino and Asian, human and puppy.
This is just the beginning of a reinvigorated LGBT movement committed to innovative organizing strategies and willing to reach out to all Americans to secure civil rights for LGBT people.
After the jump are video of the crowd beginning the march with the Pledge of Allegiance and photos from the event.
