Rainbow Report Pride and Politics in Tel Aviv's Mayoral Race

Incumbent Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai and openly gay MK Nitzan Horowitz will try to court the LGBT community at Friday's Gay Pride events.

It may not be so evident from the joyous spectrum of colors, the deafening music and the abundance of skin, but Pride is basically a political demonstration – subversive in its daring display of sexuality, revolutionary in its defiance of social norms, even if these days it feels less so.
