|The Soulforce Equality Ride is a two month social justice bus tour that confronts political and spiritual oppression of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) people. The ride began in 2006 and has visited hundreds of cities, colleges, universities, and other institutions. The 2012 ride will be the fifth tour. This year a large emphasis is being placed on intersectional justice (or the desire to practice social justice in a way that ends all oppression against all people) and community involvement. The participants of the Equality Ride are provided top notch training, transportation, housing, and food throughout the tour.

Keri is an openly gay woman involved in an "amazing relationship". She believes in equal rights for all of life... Keri's partner and she marched with the Manhattan LGBT center this past pride and she has marched with the SGI in the last 5 prides to support equal rights.
In Keri's own words
I believe that people need to open up their minds and hearts and realize that us in the lgbt community arent less human we dont spread diseases just by standing by us and we deserve to have the same rights as anyone...We are one, regardless of sexuality ...
