The marchers went past the White House and to the National Mall. Among the speakers were actor Asia Kate Dillon, GLAAD CEO/ED Sarah Kate Ellis and former NBA player Jason Collins.

A banner was put in front of the stage as a tribute to the 49 victims who died in the mass shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando last year.
