Anti-homophobia protest targets Gloria Jeans

May 17, 2008

A Sydney protest to mark the International Day Against Homophobia was held outside Gloria Jeans cafe in King Street, Newtown. Gloria Jeans Coffee sponsors activities by the Hillsong Church, which has been criticised for its homophobic positions. The International Day Against Homophobia was selected to commemorate May 17, 1990, the day the World Health Organisation removed homosexuality from its list of mental illnesses.
