Jerusalem Deputy mayor Yitzhak Pindrus’ plea to have a derisive Donkey Parade running alongside the annual gay pride parade was shot down by Police Wednesday.
His idea was to illustrate the “bestial nature” of gays on a pride march, while greeting them with live donkeys at the beginning of the route.
The Jerusalem police offered Pindrus a compromise, allowing cardboard donkey cutouts. Even though Pindrus accepted this offer, he plans on appealing the decision to higher courts.
Additional security has been ordered for Thursday’s parade, which is estimated to have 3,000 participants.
