To show the world Sexual Freedom matters. It’s a new era, and with the evolution of social media, people are more open about their sexuality than ever. And yet, in this era of unprecedented acceptance, so many of us are still hiding who we really are.
Join us at our Sexual Freedom Parades this year in Denver, New Orleans and Las Vegas. Experience the world’s largest celebration of human sexuality and embrace your true self. You must register to march with us in the parades. A limited number of spots are available in each.
• Discrimination based on sexual expression is still legal and very common. There are currently many federally protected classes (race, color, religion, sex, and national origin) included in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, which was passed in 1964. Title VII does not include sexual expression as a protected class.
• This means if you are non-monogamous, polyamorous, practice BDSM or run in non-traditional sex or relationship circles, you risk being discriminated against when applying for work, housing, loans, new accounts, partnerships, etc. And, if you are like most, you probably lead a double life, hiding elements of your personality in many circles.
• The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which would make sexual orientation or expression a protected class under Title VII, has been introduced in every Congress since 1994 except the 109th, but has never been passed.
• President Obama signed an Executive Order in 2014, adding sexual orientation and gender identity protections for all federal employees, but it is still up to many state laws on whether or not employees can be discriminated against by employers based on sexual orientation.
• We march to show that sexual freedom should be protected just like religious freedom. We march to support all consensual adult sexual expression, and we march because it’s fun. We invite you, no matter how you identify, to join us and march for Sexual Freedom!
