- In Season: August 29, 2014 updated
On June 15, 2011, five members of council in Holland, MI voted against extending basic anti-discrimination protections, to its residents and workers that happen to be LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual or transgender.)
On May 4, 2012, we come together in one of the many Michigan cities that does protect its residents and workers - Grand Rapids - as "human art," a demonstration of love and support for the LGBT minority in Holland, MI.
Hundreds, if not thousands, will gather at Rosa Parks Circle, in Downtown Grand Rapids, starting at 11:30am. Volunteers will help coordinate all participants into the shape of a heart and equal sign.
A helicopter will fly overhead at Noon - sharp - with a professional photographer on board. We will capture this unprecedented declaration of love and support and broadcast by all available media, as a demonstration of love.
To Holland, with love - Until Love Is Equal.
WHEN: Arrive 11:30 a.m. Friday, May 4
WHAT: Wear red - bring a lunch if you like!
WHERE: Rosa Parks Circle, Grand Rapids

SUMMARY: By 11:30am you should be parking your bike, vehicle or getting off the bus - heading to Rosa Parks Circle. Just show up! We'll start making our formation by 11:45 a.m. When the Kent County air-raid siren goes off at 12:00 p.m., the helicopter photographer will begin snapping photos. We have five minutes to get it right! By 12:05 p.m. it'll be history.
Please make this a part of your Friday, May 4th lunch hour! Plan to dine at a local restaurant, pack your own lunch and bring it for after the photo in the park - or if we can help, let us know!
