The march was organized after a 17-year-old from the Arab city of Tamra was stabbed Friday afternoon, July 26, outside Tel Aviv’s Beit Dror shelter, after moving there to escape family pressure. According to the staff of Beit Dror, before collapsing the teenager identified the assailant as his brother.
Israel’s education minister has provoked a storm of anger by backing “gay conversion therapy”, a discredited technique that seeks to turn people heterosexual.
Rafi Peretz said it could work and that he had even performed it.
“I think that it is possible to convert [someone’s sexual orientation],” Mr Peretz said.
“I can tell you that I have deep familiarity on the issue of education, and I have also done this.”
In 2019, NYC Pride welcomes WorldPride as we mark the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising and a half-century of LGBTQIA+ liberation.
Most gay bars and clubs in New York at the time (including the Stonewall) were operated by the Mafia, who paid corruptible police officers to look the other way and blackmailed wealthy gay patrons by threatening to “out” them.
Police raids on gay bars were common, but on that particular night, members of the city’s LGBT community decided to fight back—sparking an uprising that would launch a new era of resistance and revolution.
Boyce war 1969 regelmäßig im Stonewall Inn, eine der Bars im New Yorker Greenwich Village, in der sich die Homo- und Transsexuellen trafen. Ständig mussten sie mit Razzien der Polizei rechnen, Verhaftungen und Erniedrigungen. So auch in der Nacht zum 28. Juni. Doch diesmal wehrten sich die Gäste des Stonewall Inns und drängten die Polizei gewaltsam zurück.
Das Besondere in dieser Nacht an der Christopher Street, erinnert sich Boyce, war der plötzliche Zusammenhalt gegen Polizeiwillkür:
(17.8.2017) Local news showed video surveillance of Moore’s body being removed from Buck’s house as another young man was just arriving. Almost implying that Buck planned to keep on “partying” even after the death of Moore in his house.
In July 2017, the body of 26-year-old Gemmel Moore was found at the same apartment. The coroner’s office ruled Moore’s death an accidental methamphetamine overdose, to the dismay of his family, who wanted prosecutors to charge Buck with a crime.
Buck was present at the location when both deaths occurred, according to the sheriff’s department.
