Israeli Gay Pride

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/israelife/item/israeli_gay_pride_20120615

Last Friday, the 18th Israeli Gay pride parade took place in Tel Aviv - the city which became a world gay center.It may be hard to believe, but in 2012, the gay community, of all races, genders and types, does not get equal rights in many places in the western world. The openness towards the members of the LGBT community is growing with time, but the various governments still refuse to acknowledge them as equals. Gradually, more and more states allow same-sex marriage or same-sex families, but of all places, when it comes to equal rights, Israel still has a long way to come. The Israeli law shows no progress as tens of same-sex marriage law proposals have been voted down. The Israeli LGBT's still have many hurdles to cross, including the Orthodox status quo.
