Victory for Open House

Jerusalem’s gay rights advocacy group, Jerusalem Open House, was awarded a victory this week when the city of Jerusalem was ordered to pay 40,000 NIS ($8,500) towards 2002’s gay pride parade. (c/o New Israel Fund News Release)

Of last year’s event, the LA Times wrote, “Undeterred by the outrage of ultra-Orthodox Jews or fear of terrorist attack, gay activists and their supporters marched through the heart of downtown Jerusalem under heavy police guard Friday in the city’s first gay pride parade.” The next parade will be June 13. So far they have not secured public funding for this event.
