Socialist Mayoral Candidate Frances Villar to Have Contingent at LGBT Pride Parade


Frances Villar Campaign in LGBT Pride Parade 
Sunday, June 28, 12pm 
54th St. between 5th and 6th Avenues
Section #8 of the Parade

Campaign marching under slogans "LGBT Equality Now -- The Billionaires Are Not Our Friends" 

The Party for Socialism and Liberation and the Frances Villar for Mayor 2009 campaign announced today a contingent in this year's LGBT Pride Parade (Sunday, June 28). The contingent will be gathering in Section #8, between 5th and 6th avenues on 54th Street at 12 Noon. 

Please let us know in advance if you would like to march with the PSL/Frances Villar for Mayor contingent by calling 212-694-8762 or

The campaign released the following statement: "Billionaire Mayor Mike Bloomberg, who clearly thinks he can pay his way into a third term, likes to pretend to be a friend of the LGBT community. After securing the nomination of the Republican party, which staunchly opposes gay marriage, he turned around and proclaimed his support for the LGBT community’s civil rights struggle. But Bloomberg is the largest single contributor to the Senate Republicans, the main group now standing in the way of same-sex marriage legislation! For the billionaire King of New York, same-sex marriage is just like any other “issue:" one that can be bought and sold depending on his campaign needs." 

Frances Villar is a working- class mother from the Bronx. She is an activist with on-the-ground experience fighting for tenant rights, education rights and against the war. She is a member of the Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL), which actively organized for the mass mobilizations against Prop 8 in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, and elsewhere. The Party for Socialism and Liberation was formed in 2004. The PSL fielded presidential candidates Gloria La Riva and Eugene Puryear in the 2008 elections, and were on the ballot in 12 states, including New York.  

Villar and campaign representatives will be available to speak at this Sunday's LGBT Pride Parade and in the days leading up to it. Call for appointments. More information on the campaign is available at
