Photos of some of the LGBQTI contingent at January 24 Pro-Choice/Pro-Gay/Pro-Immigrant Rights Rally and March in San Francisco.

The San Diego Sister of Perpetual Indulgence helped the Raging Grannies spiff up their costumes "backstage" at the Music Concourse next to Justin Herman Plaza for the 2009 Pro-Choice Rally. The Grannies offered up songs for LGBQTI and immigrant rights issues from the stage (as well as women's rights to abortion songs)....... today's rally was a combined march of members of many communities.

**Battle Hymn for Transgender Rights**

tune: Battle Hymn of the Republic

We haven't all had surgery, Transition's where we start.
Some bigots say we just like RE-arranging body parts.
Our outsides may look different, but we still have the same hearts.
When gender's reassigned!

CHORUS:
No more insults, no more slander! No more right-wing propaganda!
Our bodies are our own and we're aware of how they work,
When gender's reassigned!


**Song for Immigrant Rights**
by Granny Gail

(tune: Yellow Rose of Texas)

Estamos trabajando por la justicia
Queremos beneficios para las familias
Queremos appoyarles en su buena lucha
Vivimos todos juntos en la comunidad

When you exploit your workers, You save a buck or two
But think how you would feel, If it were done to you
When workers have no health care, It's not just their concern
It hurts the whole community, When they've nowhere to turn!


**INVALIDATE PROP 8!**
tune: (Oh My Darlin') Clementine

Look around you, see the people
Getting married everyday
It's our right to wed a loved one
So why can't you if you're gay?

Equal rights cannot be hindered
California knows the way
Why would CHURCH GROUPS intervene here
Our Supreme Court had its say

Join the Grannies and stand up now
Sing and shout it out today
Join the struggle, fight the battle--Overturn Prop 8 today!
