"We should do both. Philly is known as the City of Brotherly Love. I'd be reluctant to forego the event here. Our community seems to have a real strength in protesting. Why not do both?"

"We should totally have both events. Some people can only afford to do local Pride. Why deprive them of that opportunity? We should provide options for everyone and be fair to every income bracket."

"I think we should keep both events. For example, I attended the Philly Women's March, rather than the Women's March in D.C. I had my parents visiting that weekend so it was easier for me to go to the local event. I'm envisioning other folks facing similar circumstances, where it's easier for them to stay local."

Reginald Lee Stokes
retail manager | South Philadelphia
"No. We have it in us to do both. It's not a matter of doing one or the other. The National March on Washington is important but we can't forget our local Pride. I think it makes more of an impact to do both."
