PRIDE 2011

La Raza Unida stood up for freedom for relationships and sexuality while standing against homophobia, racism, sexism, and classism at the Albuquerque Pride Parade today.

We had a small dedicated and lively group which helped to fire up
the crowd with yells of Viva La Raza and La Raza Unida, Jamas Sera Vencida!

We are clear that homophobia is used like racism, sexism and classism in order to keep us divided. We refuse to be confused about that and will stand in solidarity with all in fighting for justice.
