Today the Israeli GLBT community held a huge Pride march and rally in Jerusalem, from the Independence Park (near the center of town) to the Knesset (Israeli Parliament).
Rally in Independence Park before the march.
Merchandise on sale before the march. I bought a small rainbow flag for 15 NIS (approx. $3).
Giant flag representing Meretz (a left-wing Israeli political party).
The Israeli Labor party also had a presence at the march.
Combining causes: tents representing the protests against housing prices in the Pride rally before the march. The signs read, “Where is the achievable youth housing?”, “Low wages, sky-high rent!”.
Marching past the Plaza hotel. There was a heavy police presence securing the march.
Passing the Knesset.
More pictures tomorrow.
