Re: “Halifax Pride remains inclusive

Let's be clear: QAH resolution targeted, exclusively, Size Doesn't Matter materials. Not the state of Israel. Not the Jewish community. This is a blatant misrepresentation of the intent of the resolution.

International Human Rights is a 2SLGBTQ+ issue. Pinkwashing is a 2SLGBTQ+ issue. QAH and their allies are working in solidarity with 2SLGBTQ+ activists in Israel who themselves are confronting the realities of pinkwashing.

Re: “Halifax Pride stands at a crossroads

As a white queer person, it is vital for us to be taking the lead on our own unlearning. There are so many opportunities popping up after the AGM -- attend a workshop! Have conversations with other white people!

As a sidenote: the move to 2SLGBTQ+ is intended to centre Two-Spirit experience and not have it become an afterthought of the '+'. Two-Spirit experience is unique from our western understanding of gender and sexuality and deserves its full and adequate representation. A reminder that we live on unceded Mi'kmaw territory in K'jipuktuk.

Re: “We’re young Jews, and we support Queer Arabs of Halifax

Both the AJC and NSRAP are mobilizing according to Halifax Pride's by-laws. I don't think it's fair to suggest either "started" encouraging allies to attend first when these mobilization efforts have been on an equal footing. Let's not forget, the AJC is also sweetening the deal with free food, free drinks, paying for parking, and providing child care at the event. Queer organizations are not in a financial situation to be able to offer the same level of services.

Representatives of NSRAP approached the AJC as soon as it was determined, after intense effort since the table at Pride was registered exclusively as Size Doesn't Matter, that the AJC had some involvement with this table. What was preventing the AJC from identifying themselves to Halifax Pride and the LGBTQ+ community?

Re: “We’re young Jews, and we support Queer Arabs of Halifax

The racist comments here are deeply troubling. Any suggestion that students at our local universities -- our own community members -- don't have a valid stake in this discussion is also troubling.

Thank you for your important and nuanced perspective. It's very obviously panicked many people who support an occupying apartheid state without question.
