The Verdict Is In!

We just received word that the judge that heard the case this morning regarding the Jerusalem Open House against the Jerusalem Municipality has made a decision!

The result:
The pride parade and festivities WILL take place as planned! Click for more pride details.

The judge ruled that the city must allow the JOH to use city facilities, that the city must put up the pride flags, and that the City must pay the JOH 60,000 NIS in damages!

It is an exciting ruling! I don't think that the City will appeal because they don't have a very good legal case.

If you are from out of town and want to show your support for the JOH and the Jerusalem LGBT community JOIN US! Seriously, please contact me if you want to meet up. My email address is on the profile page. I'd be happy to host you and hang out!
