Showing solidarity with LGBT people across the world and bringing awareness to issues confronting the community, the International Day of Solidarity for Global LGBT Equality takes place today, Sunday, with marches, demonstrations, and kiss-ins in more than 25 cities.

"The time has come, where we send a message to countries like Russia, Uganda, Iran and every anti-LGBT nation, that all humans are created equal and deserve freedom," reads a message on the event's Facebook page. "We must take a stand."

New York's Union Square and San Francisco's Russian Consulate are just two U.S. locations expected to see major same-sex action this afternoon. Click here to see what's up in your city.
