Jerusalem is Proud to Present

In the summer of 2006 Jerusalem was to host, for the first time in history, the World Pride events, which were to culminate in a traditional gay pride parade. The planned events stirred turmoil in the politically complex city, with Jewish, Muslim and Christian religious leaders banding together in an uncompromising battle against what they said would “defile the holy city”. On the other side stood the activists of The Open House, Jerusalem’s lesbian and gay community centre, who planned the events. They had to deal with threats to much more than just their right to march. The parade would make a statement about the civil rights of the
gay minority. Director Nitzan Gilady successfully enters both camps and offers a clear survey of the arguments for and against. In the end, the court of justice has the final word. A compromise prevents an outburst of violence.
