Tel Aviv is known as the “gay city” of Israel. Some estimates say that 15% of Tel Avivians are LGBT, probably because most Israelis who are gay escape the smaller towns for the big city of night life, beaches, and fabulouness. But Be’er Sheva, a smaller city in the South of Israel (the Neveg), is making its own steps towards inclusivity. This year, the municipality, which included an ultra-Orthodox Jew, approved the first Gay Pride Parade. Hear from Shai as he described the triumphs and challenges of the day.
