Pride Toronto funding issue hits national TV

CBC’s Power & Politics covered the Pride Toronto funding issue last night. Watch below as Elle Flanders of Queers Against Israeli Apartheid faces off against Toronto lawyer Martin Gladstone.

 
Pink Triangle Press’s editorial director Matt Mills wrote about the issue in this week’s Toronto edition of Xtra:
"QuAIA members should march in the parade with whatever signage they see
fit. Pride Toronto should make clear to its funders that it is grateful
for all their financial support but that free expression  — whether it be political messaging, nudity or same-sex sexual expression
— is a beautiful part of gay culture that simply ought to be
embraced.
If funders can’t accept that, they should fund something else.” (read Mills’ full editorial here)
