As the Latvian Lavenders celebrate a successful pride, Israeli queers are gearing up for Jerusalem’s forthcoming festivities. The historically holy city’s coppers have given the June 21 event the go-ahead.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told the press, “We agreed in principle at a meeting with the organizers that this demonstration can go ahead.” Authorities have not, however, ironed out the parade’s route and itinerary.
No doubt everyone’s worried about the nation’s religious right, who have vowed to protest pride, as they did last year. In fact, the crazies are already gearing up for the anti-gay action. Police have arrested an unidentified 37-year man for allegedly vandalizing a gay center’s bulletin board.
