Jerusalem Post: Annual Gay Pride Parade Will Take Place

Jerusalem court approves gay parade

The Jerusalem District Court on Sunday approved the annual Gay Pride Parade in the capital, slated to take place on Thursday, June 30.

The court ruling came after the parade's organizers, Jerusalem's Gay and Lesbian Center, appealed the Jerusalem municipality's decision to cancel the parade.

In addition, Army Radio reported, the court ordered the city to pay a sum of NIS 60,000 to cover the organizers' legal expenses, out of which Jerusalem Mayor Uri Lupolianski must pay NIS 30,000.

In response to the verdict, the parade organizers announced that the court decision "proved that Israel is a democracy." ETC...
