Pride Rescinds

As of Wednesday night, Pride Toronto has rescinded their ban on Queers Against Israeli Apartheid marching in this year’s parade….that initial ban which sparked a shit storm of outrage over censorship of free speech and political expression at Pride, local and international controversy.    I, along with many other performers and activists and community members, had canceled my own participation as a performer at the Proud Voices stage on July 3 because of the ban.

Here is the latest from Pride Toronto about their decision to rescind that ban.

I’m pleased to commend Pride on reversing that decision (and major kudos to all the people who worked hard to get that to happen) and I’ll be performing according to the original schedule at 4 pm on July 3.   Before that, I’ll be heading up a squandron of cyclists at the Take Back the Dyke March, starting at 2 pm at Nathan Phillips Square- come ride with us!
