It just came to my attention that The Australian Society of Polish Jews and Their Descendents Inc., a little known organisation in Melbourne’s relatively small Jewish community, signed up as an Organisational Supporter of the No To Homophobia campaign in early May this year.
A testament to their support of No To Homophobia is the addition of the No To Homophobia logo to their web site:
(As I write this article, the inaugural Jewish organisation to support No To Homophobia, the Jewish Community Council of Victoria, does not yet sport the No To Homophobia logo on their own web site. Hopefully they will see there is merit in proudly saying No To Homophobia, just like the ASPJ have done.)
Following the lead of the JCCV signing up to No To Homophobia in March this year, the ASPJ are to be congratulated on being the first individual organisation in the Victorian Jewish community to sign up to No To Homophobia.
I hope their lead paves the way for many more organisations to also say No To Homophobia.
