Support Pride Toronto's decision to allow freedom of expression!
As you may have heard, some groups out there are really pissed off that Queers Against Israeli Apartheid will be marching in the Pride parade this year.
The Toronto Sun quoted some straight people saying that Pride shouldn't be a political event, and that people are "outraged" over the choice of a Muslim as grand marshal for the parade.
As a result, we have learned that Pride Toronto is receiving steady emails from outraged readers of the Toronto Sun (and you can imagine how legible they are). We can only imagine what other emails are going to Pride's corporate and government funders.
THIS IS WHERE WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We know that the community supports our inclusion in the Pride parade and the choice of El-Farouk Khaki as grand marshal. We saw your outrage when the National Post falsely reported that we were banned. We need to mobilize that energy again to show the Pride Committee that we support their decision to allow freedom of expression and that we will defend them against attacks to their funding.
