Finding Pride in Gay Jerusalem

In contrast to the huge pride parades in Western capitals, the Jerusalem parade is still subversive in ways which truly merit our pride.

The Jerusalem Gay Pride Parade is unique. It still has a little of the subversion that characterized the first gay pride marches - the revelation of a truth that everyone is trying to hide, something that society swallows with difficulty - that suddenly emerges and demands recognition, realizing that actually it is beautiful and fitting to be gay.
