Palestinian Debate Hits Toronto’s Public Display of Gaydom


Canadian gays just want to dance in Lycra and put on fake eyelashes while celebrating at the Toronto Pride Parade later this month, but now the event is HQ for a debate on anti-Semitism! The Canadian Jewish Congress is making a stink about letting the group Queers Against Israeli Apartheid march in the parade (they’re against Palestinian occupation) and having gay activist El Farouk Khaki, who they claim to be anti-Semitic (he gave a speech for QuAIA), lead as pride marshal. It’s the battle of the pink triangles vs. the interlocking triangles. (Photo: TaurusGuy)
