Our friends over at Pride Tampa Bay, Stand Up SWFL, and OUT are organizing a series of buses to take Floridians to the National Equality March in DC on October 11:

Don't Miss The Bus For The National Equality March Washington, D.C. Sunday, October 11, 2009

Organizing transportation, accommodations and logistics for multiple cities in Florida has been a monumental task. One that has been well worth it to give Floridian's the opportunity to join with our brothers, sisters and allies from across the country to be apart of this Historic National March for Equality.

The response to date has been excellent and we couldn't be more pleased. Presently bus seats and accommodations are still available, but, are limited, the deadline for registering is September 18th. However, we ask those interested in participating to sign-up today, please don't wait until the last minute. This will enable us to determine the need to arrange for more buses and rooms. The last thing we want to happen is to leave anyone interested in being apart of Florida's Contingent of Equality Supporters behind. Please go to http://www.fl2dc.org/, to reserve your seat today.

If your unable participate and can afford the price of a bus seat. You can sponsor a student or equality supporter who wants to go to the march, but, can't afford to do.
