Commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and their impact on gay rights in America by attending Indy Impact's Stonewall Rally in downtown Indianapolis on Sunday, June 28th, 2009 from 2PM-6PM. This event is in honor our many victories while fighting for equality and an end to discrimination since 1969: from the decriminalization of homosexuality, to companies independently offering benefits to domestic partners and the same-sex marriage tidal wave that swept across America earlier this year!

This is Indy Impact's first independently organized event. We're pulling out all the stops in order to make this event a success, including a shiny, new (city-issued) "Special Events" permit, which allows us to use a sound system and individuals can now be forced to leave. You will also be able to make an impact by sharing your own personal victories fighting for equal rights. Whether it's standing up for a transgender/gay/bi co-worker, volunteering for a local grassroots (LGBT) movement, or just coming out of the closet and declaring your pride - we all have a personal victory that needs to be celebrated and remembered.

Support Indy Impact and those dedicated to actively securing LGBT rights in Indiana, while witnessing how far we've come since 1969. This event is not a protest, but signs positively supporting the fight for equality will always be welcome at any Indy Impact event. We have accomplished so many great feats once thought impossible and will accomplish so many more with your help. So take a few hours on this historic day to show your pride and commitment to equality regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Indy Impact is the local grassroots LGBT response to the passage of Proposition 8 in California on November 4th, 2008 and the national protests that followed on November 15th. Their mission is to ensure Hoosiers do not forget that equality for all gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) Americans is not just a coastal issue, but an American issue that effects real people right here in the heartland.
