(Worthy News) - Thousands of people are expected to march through central Jerusalem Thursday afternoon in the city’s 16th annual LGBTQ pride parade.
This year’s March for Pride and Tolerance will be held under the banner of “LGBTQ and Religion,” and is expected to draw some 4,000 participants to the capital city.
“In a city that has known bloody wars of religion, we have seen and borne the price of hatred against the backdrop of religion,” organizers wrote on their Facebook page. “We will shed light on the complex, deep connections between [various religious groups] and the struggles for partnerships, conflict and dialogue.” [ Source:Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
