I'm here to tell you about a new LJ community based in the Washington D.C. area. Our goal is to give our nation's lawmakers a non-violent gathering to serve as a reminder that the US has citizens that are gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transsexual. There is no specific political protest, but a show of pride amidst a little fun in the sun.
What are we going to do?
We're going to fly kites. Specifically, we're going get as many people as we can gather to fly rainbow kites on the National Mall and fill the sky with color.
We haven't set a date yet - tentatively we're thinking early this August.

P.S., even if you can't be in D.C., you'd still be welcome to join. And yes, please repost this anywhere it's appropriate.
