Jerusalem Gay Pride March (28 July) – part two


Marching with the Pride flag by the Knesset (the Israeli Parliament).

There was a strong (and colorfully-dressed) youth presence at the march.

Liberal religious Jews showing their support for gay rights. The sign on the left says “Proud religious community”. Many carry signs with the names of their religious high schools – Hartman, Neve Hana, Horev and others.

These religious people stand in stark contrast to the people in this house, who had anti-gay chants on a loudspeaker and actually threw bags of urine at the front of the march. One person was arrested. Somehow they managed to stink up an entire stretch of road so it smelled of sewage. Not especially smart – we had to suffer for ten minutes at the most, they will have to live with it until it fades away.

Two separate marches: one for gay pride, one for the police securing it.

Rally at the end of the march. There were people of all different ages, groups and races at the march – Jews, Arabs, whites, Blacks, Asians, young people, old people, gay, Lesbian, straight, transsexuals and more.

    The “youth presence” was SO WELL DRESSED. I wanted everyone’s accessories. Seriously.
