Gay Pride

September 5th, 2009 by Admin

 Here’s a wonderful quote from Rachel Maddow:                                                                                                                  ”I do have one problem with Gay Pride, which is that in every Gay Pride I’ve ever been to, there’s the PFLAG contingent, where the parents walk past with the signs that say ‘I love my gay [child].’ I don’t cry. I dissolve. I’m a mess for an hour and can’t do anything else and have to go home.”

WorldPride Coming to Jerusalem

June 17th, 2008 by Admin

WorldPride is scheduled to come to Jerusalem this August. Organized for the fourth consecutive year the city’s annual gay pride festival promises to be transformed into an event truly befitting what Jerusalem should be: a world city.

Five months from now, thousands of people from all over the world are expected to gather in Jerusalem, united by a vision of community instead of conflict, a celebration of diversity instead of the blind repetition of dogma.

Jerusalem’s gay and lesbian community is a unique example of people coming together beyond ethnic, religious, or national boundaries. Together, both gay Arabs and Jews, plan to make a global statement for love, tolerance, and pride.
