On today's show:
Host Simon Spungin talks to Ravit Hecht, Avshalom Halutz and Larry Derfner about Pride Week in Israel – just days after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appointed a gay Likudnik as his justice minister.
We also discuss allegations of 'pinkwashing' against Israel, government foot-dragging on legislation to grant LGBT parents equal rights and the undercurrent of anti-gay sentiment among a small but powerful ultra-Orthodox minority.
>> Are you in Tel Aviv this week? Don't miss out on our list of recommended Pride parties, celebrations and special events.
