As a gay, jewish woman I want the focus of my gay pride parade to be on the strides that we have made in respective societies. I do not want our parade to be turned into a battleground for people's agendas. This parade is meant to focus on our unity as gay people from all walks of life. No group should be so priviledged as to take that away from the whole. So keep your anti-Israel sentiment elsewhere and let's provide a united front to work on the issues that are important to us all, i.e.-equality for gays first and foremost. There is a time and a place for this elsewhere. Don't we have enough to struggle against, why fight each other?
