WorldPride Cancels Jerusalem March

WorldPride has been forced to cancel their August 10th march, aftering being denied a parade permit by Jerusalem police, who claim that the escalating war in Lebanon make them unable to provide WorldPride the “extensive security” needed to protect marchers from anti-gay protesters. WorldPride organizers intend to carry on with all other events, including the film festival and shows, and vow to reschedule the march to take place in Jerusalem at a later date.
