    This coming Friday Tel Aviv will hold its annual Pride parade.
    A week before the event the city has hang Pride Flags in main streets.
    Is it the same in your city? I know that here in Israel, Tel Aviv is the only city that decorate the streets. other cities (i.e Jerusalem)are not tolerant toward the gay community.

    I thought I'd share some pics (sorry if the quality is not good, took it with my cell phone cam)

    Sorry, for some reason the pics can not be seen (don't know what I did wrong icon_sad.gif ).
    So I added them to my profile if you want to take a look.

    that looks nice. in new york we get pride banners with corporate co-sponsor logos on them. oh -- we also get a pink stripe down the middle of 5th avenue, which always makes me think, "jeez i thought the pride flag REPLACED pink as a gay symbol."icon_confused.gif

    Eranoosh I think it’s fabulous that those flags are up in Tel Aviv and it definitely makes me feel great whenever I see them displayed for us by government officials!

    Here in Toronto in the gay village we have the same style flags up all year round. There is also a life size statue commemorating the gay ghetto of Alexander Wood, who, in the 1800’s was presumed to be gay and owned all the land in the area.

    Our Gay Pride week is in the end of June, and the entire core of downtown turns into one big gay flag. They are everywhere. City Hall raises the gay flag at the beginning of Pride week also.

    I hope you had a great time during you pride festivities!

    Israelis are cool, and normal. We don't even have a Pride Parade here in Toledo. We have a picnic and a drag softball game. Ever try to swing a bat with fake tits in the way?
