J’lem gay pride parade to ‘stay the course’

Last year’s Gay Pride Parade will be remembered for the murder of Shira Banki and stabbing of six others by Yishai Schlissel. The message of this year’s parade, scheduled for July 21, is: “We are here to stay.”

Founded in 1997, the Jerusalem Open House has organized annual parades, which have been targeted by antigay protests in the past, including twice by Schlissel, since 2002.
