Not Rex: Israeli apartheid and Toronto's Pride Parade

B'nai Brith tried to stonewall Queers Against Israeli Apartheid (QuAIA) from marching in the Toronto Pride Parade. QuAIA's aims are to support queers in Palestine and to make public the conditions of apartheid endured by Palestinians. This 'Not Rex' commentary explains why it's good that this effort by the 'thought police for Likud' failed.
