Thanks McDonald’s

July 4th, 2008 by Admin

The American Family Association, which condemns gay and lesbian family causes like marriage equality, has called for a boycott of fast-food chain restaurant McDonald’s.

 McDonald’s, however, has given the AFA notice that it’s not about to allow its policies to be dictated by anti-gay groups.

 In a letter to the AFA Pat Harris, Global Chief Diversity Officer for McDonald’s, wrote, “We treat our employees and our customers with respect and dignity, regardless of their ethnicity, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or other factors. We support out employees’ personal involvement in organizations of their choice.”

 ”McDonald’s is a trusted and well-respected neighbor, employer and corporate citizen in communities across the U.S. We will continue to support our people and their right to live and work in an inclusive society.”

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.
