Imam decries Islamophobia while Pride battles homophobia
Globe and Mail
For some Pride veterans, it might have been a bit of a déja vu moment: As thousands of scantily clad, flamboyantly colourful Pride marchers sashayed down Yonge Street, the ire of several was drawn by speakers at a nearby convention who noted that, according to their scripture, homosexuality is an abomination.
The conference was an annual convention at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre – a weekend-long series of discussions on what it means to be a devout Muslim in the 21st-Century.
But one of speakers at the weekend-long conference has got in trouble with the city's politicians before for anti-gay stands.
