On the 9th of August, GLOV (Gays and Lesbians Opposing Violence)
organized a "safety walk" in response to the recent beatings of two men
at Lincoln and T sts NW by three men yelling homophobic slurs.
Only the march is shown here, as a couple speakers tried to inject pro-gentrification arguments into a very necessary response to DC's massive rise in gaybashings over the past year in particular and past decade in general.
The driving force behind this seems to be a deliberate decision by DC
government going back to 1986 to break up concentrations of Gay
nightlife, dispersing GLBT folks throughout the city.
