The Louisville Chapter of the Young Democratic Socialists of America (YDSA) and the Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL) organized a rally for LGBT rights in Old Louisville on International Workers’ Day Monday evening.

Local activists and community members held up signs and repeated chants as they marched through Old Louisville, starting at Central Park and walking up 2nd and 3rd Street before stopping at the Old Louisville Coffee Co-op.

Speakers at the event demanded legislative action on social issues, including rent control, affordable housing, living wages, and an end to transphobia and homophobia among other demands in light of recent anti-lgbt legislature being passed around the country.
