As a gay male, and as one who understands the importance of Jerusalem to many religious faiths, I in no way support this event. The gay left is only aiming to taunt the religious right with their parading down the streets of the most holiest city in the world, and that in itself is a serious issue. We, the gay community must accept that the religious community here in Israel, as well as abroad, are entitled to have their share of turf and that not every corner of this planet is open to our lifestyle. What bothers me even more is that most of the staunch supporters of this event are not even Israeli, but overseas gay rights organizations seeking a response from the Religious right in Jerusalem. Makes me think wether they have an ulterior motive. Lets keep gay pride in Tel Aviv, where it belongs, and Agudah, stop being a pest. Having men walking around jerusalem shirtless, and girls using pride flags as mini skirts is not going to get you acceptance but only trouble.
