L.A. Pride parade morphs into #ResistMarch, as tens of thousands hit the streets

Edward Gould, 48, and his boyfriend, Bradley Land, 52, wore red shirts with white letters emblazoned with the maxim: "Make America Gay Again," a riff on President Trump's campaign slogan.

The Pasadena couple were among thousands of people who filled the streets of Hollywood and West Hollywood on Sunday to participate in a human rights march that this year replaced the historic L.A. Pride parade.

Gould and Land said the march was more appropriate given the political climate.

"The assault on minorities and marginalized communities in this country is unacceptable," Land said.
