South Africa’s Freedom Day
The Lesbian and Gay Equality Project (LGEP) is proud to extend an open invitation to the 2010 Freedom for All Rally. In this 16th year remembrance of the first democratic vote, the LGEP together with its partners and the communities of Ekurhuleni will reflect on freedom and the achievement of full liberation for the diverse LGBTI communities in South Africa.
From 09h00 on 27 April 2010 at the Eudy Simelane Memorial Park in the Tornado Section of Kwa-Thema, Ekurhuleni at least 400 people are expected to join to commemorate the lives of LGBTI people and activists: Eudy Simelane, Girly Nkosi, Zoliswa Nkonyana, Sizakele Sigasa, Salome Moosa, Thokozane Qwabe, Waldo Bester and the many others killed because of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
On this Freedom Day the Equality Project honour women and men of different generations from the Ekurhuleni community who have being important voices in the defence of the rights of LGBTI and promoters of full liberation. Certificates and medals to 15 amazing Champions for Equality will be handed.
Women, transgender, lesbians and young kids from across Gauteng will play friendly soccer matches throughout the day.
