Queers Against Letting Queers Against Israeli Apartheid March In Toronto Pride

Queers Against Israeli Apartheid plans to march in Toronto Pride, organizers be damned. The furor over the group’s calls to end “Israeli apartheid” won’t keep the merry band of Palestinian sympathizers from celebrating their gayness, a spokeswoman insists. But will it mean they’ll start calling themselves Queers in Favor of a Free Palestine? Probably, if a Toronto city councilor’s threat to withdraw $121,000 in funding for the pride parade holds up.
