Gay Pride Parade Gaza

Shhh. Don't tell Hamas.

A facebook page has been set up promoting the first ever gay pride parade in Gaza, scheduled for Thursday, November 1, 2012

From Facebook:

Come celebrate the First Ever Gaza Gay Pride Parade. Let's show the occupation that Palestine is free and Liberal. Come and celebrate gay culture in Palestine! We are free to be gay! World Peace! Come and celebrate in the new Liberal, Palestine!
We will be marching down Nuseirat street.

I've got a bad feeling about this, because, well, Gaza is neither free nor liberal.

The location is listed on facebook as the Almat'haf Hotel & Cultural House Alrasheed st., Gaza, Palestine, 00972 .

The Almat'haf facility is just what we've come to expect from the worlds largest open air concentration camp. They have lush landscaped grounds

Yes, thats a koi pond in Gaza.

They take particular pride in their wedding cakes

Their buffet looks nice, too. About what we've come to expect from an area frequently compared to the Warsaw ghetto.

Will there really be a Pride Parade in Gaza? Will participants survive the experience? Stay tuned.
