A rainbow flag waves in front of the Capitol during the Equality Across America march in Washington D.C. on October 11, 2009. Gay rights supporters rallied to demand that President Obama keep his promise to end discrimination against gays and let them serve openly in the military. Some estimates put the crowd at “tens of thousands,” including Judy Shepard — the mother of Matthew Shephard, who was killed more than a decade ago over his sexual orientation — actress Cynthia Nixon, pop singer Lady Gaga, and Lt. Dan Choi — who faces a discharge over announcing that he’s gay.
