Just a few weeks into the pandemic, soon after we began sheltering in place here in California, the actor, writer, and director, John Krasinski, began broadcasting an internet series on Saturday evenings called “Some Good News.”
Several members waved the Jewish Pride flag, which had been banned from the Chicago and D.C. Dyke Marches.
Dyke Marches in New York, Boston, Seattle, Portland and Buffalo said they had no bans against Jewish Pride flags.
Among the revelers was Israel’s new justice minister and his life partner.
The U.S. Embassy branch in Tel Aviv decorated its building with rainbow banners for the city’s Pride parade, ignoring a Trump administration ban.
The neo-Nazis shouted anti-gay slurs in a bullhorn, tore up a rainbow flag and appeared to urinate on an Israeli flag.
Some would-be marchers carrying the Jewish Pride flag were turned away by marshals at an entrance point to the march.
“Our message is, no one should be policing this. We want to bring our full selves to the table.”
Some 30,000 are expected to participate in Thursday’s parade through the streets of Jerusalem.
As we fight the violent bigots on the far right, it is disheartening that those who purport to be more welcoming are closing their doors to us.
