    Isn’t the Mayor of Jerusalem some freako, religious nutcase who tries to stop Pride every year?

    If so, then I wouldn’t rely on the money. He’s claim some excuse about the sensitivities of the fiction based cults of Jeruslamem, to deny them the money.

    Over the past decade, Governments may have made great progress in dismantling the legal discrimination faced by the gay community. From the equalisation of the age of consent to workplace anti-discrimination legislation the record on gay rights is a proud one. Unfortunately, the same progress and enlightened leadership has not been shown in extending protection to our oppressed brothers and sisters in other countries.

    The likelihood of persecution on the grounds of sexual orientation in given countries. Whilst there are many countries who rejected the claim that there is a systematic repression of gay men and lesbians.

    Quite what these governments deem to be tolerable is unclear.
    Iran has a highly disturbing record on LGBT rights. As President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claimed there were “no homosexuals in Iran”, Human Rights Watch reported the execution of two more men for ‘homosexual conduct.’
    That the United Kingdom should deem it acceptable for our LGBT brothers and sisters to face persecution daily.

    When will the world accept that it is unethical to discriminate against LGBTs on the grounds of religion?
