Marching in the face of hatred

It would be remiss of me not to flag this Pinknews story from america up. It concerns a dance troupe comprised of transwomen, who decided to continue to march in parades, perform despite vehement homophobic opposition. As they put it, they just want to be themselves and do what they love, marching in spite of the narrowminded crowd. They make the very good point that what they are doing, in defying hatred and opposition, is not that different to the actions of rosa Parks or Martin Luthor-King. I must say that is an attitude I wholeheartedly support, and indeed try to echo in my own small way.
