Everyone Is Quitting Toronto Pride Over ‘Israeli Apartheid’

International grand marshals Gloria Careaga and Renato Sabbadini have stepped down from their appointed posts and twenty-three Pride Toronto award recipients have returned their trophies to protest pride organizers’ decision to ban Queers Against Israeli Apartheid, whose name supposedly violates the City of Toronto’s anti-discrimination policy, from the July 4 march. Maybe Toronto can have two parades like Austin! Or is that what’s already happening?
