I changed the title of this post because, as it was rightly pointed out to me, the salient point about these people, ‘Queers against Israeli Apartheid’ or something very much like that, is not that they are gay. It is that they hate the state of Israel. Clearly Israel is by light years more friendly to homosexuals than any of its Muslim neighbors. It is most likely that leftists and Islamic influence operations have arranged this group in order to take the highly fashionable gay pride march and turn it into something quite different.
Apologies to any and all who were offended. It cannot be denied that many gay organizations are far left leaning and therefore will not adjust policies to be less hostile to Israel etc. even though it is in the interest of genuine gay rights. (Ottawa’s Capital Extra newspaper for example) but this again has little to do with the gay community, or gay people as a whole, each of which I am confident, have the same agency to form their own opinions as diverse as any other segment of the population, other than those defined by beliefs.
Gay people are not a faith or political group. They are a sexual orientation. But there are certainly those who would like to hijack those voices and make it one.
