Pride During Wartime

Reacting to all the press and blogchatter about World Pride in Jerusalem, the organizers are vowing that the event will take place and in Jerusalem. But I have a feeling that the exploding hostilities between Israel and Lebanon may exclipse World Pride, as fear of traveling to the region will likely now keep even the most ardent Pride supporters at home, unless things miraculously resolve in the next couple of weeks. It occurs to me that there may have never been a Pride event in a country currently under attack. This ain’t no party, this ain’t no disco.
