Toronto vs 台北

同志愛太狂 基督教今抗議                                                
「同志愛很大,已讓社會的情感價值觀混淆!」國內基督教團體今天走上街頭,以反對下週六舉辦的同志遊行活動,活動發起人之一陳宇全牧師表示,儘管基督教教義並不支持同性戀行為,卻還是盡量以愛包容;不過,近幾年同志不但非弱勢,反倒成為媒體主流,基督徒們擔心下一代社會價值混淆,決定表達心聲。
對於基督徒走上街頭,台灣同志遊行聯盟表示尊重,總召楚楚昨回應,宗教應從愛出發,以愛之名來打擊弱勢的同志,以自己的標準來評價同志族群,進而希望同性戀能夠改變,基本上就是一種歧視,社會上本來就應有很多標準,不該只有一套。
同志團體並決定於今天下午四點由「All My GAY」工作小組,背著十字架前往自由廣場演出行動劇,兩團體預料將「巧遇」。
曾參與多年同志運動的基督徒「阿寬」,則表態支持基督教走上街頭,他強調,主要是因為同志公民運動已經產生質變,包括各類性開放主張,以及強調「不支持同性戀等於歧視」等霸權言論,這讓他決定離開同志團體。
基督教「反同志遊行」活動今天下午三點於中正紀念堂信義路側門集合,沿途行經杭州南路、徐州路、中山南路回到自由廣場。

Toronto pumped for WorldPride 2014
TORONTO -- Residents and merchants of the city's gay village had a big reason to exude pride yesterday after Toronto beat Stockholm to host WorldPride 2014.
"This is good for the city and the economy," said Jimmy Georgoulis, owner of Fuzion Resto-Lounge and Garden. "People from allover the world will be coming here and spending their money."
Georgoulis said Toronto is a world-class city and there are many things for the thousands of attendees to do.
WorldPride organizers at an annual conference in St.Petersburg, Fla., yesterday announced Toronto won the competition to host the 2014 event.
"We are delighted to have been awarded this opportunity to bring the world to Toronto," said Mark Singh, chair of the WorldPride committee. "The advent of a festival like this is an opportunity to highlight the acceptance of the queer community by Canadians."
Singh said the event also raises awareness "of other countries where queers are still discriminated against."
WorldPride 2014 works to promote lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues through parades, festivals and cultural activities. The event will feature a parade of nations, human rights conference and a wall in honour of the 45th anniversary of the Stonewall riots by gays in New York City.
Leading up to the vote, a delegation made up of officials of Tourism Toronto, Toronto police, TD Bank and the city made a pitch to WorldPride officials, who were shown a video for the occasion.
There will be a gathering of all Pride Toronto's former International Grand Marshals, an AIDS candlelight vigil and three parades: a Trans March, a Dyke March and Pride Parade.
"All the usual aspects of Toronto's Pride Week will remain,"said Singh. "World class entertainment and performers will appear on multiple stages during the festival."
Pride Toronto's 2009 parade drew more than one million people and brought an estimated economic benefit of $100 million to the city,organizers said.
WorldPride would occur during the regular Pride Week in 2014but would be bigger and more expensive, costing an estimated $10million rather than the $4 million spent this year.
