Video: Gay Pride Campaign (Adler Chomsky)
Tel Aviv is undoubtedly the most equal city in the Middle East to the gay tourist. The city's nightlife is considered one of the best in the world, especially the nightlife of the gay community. The gay scene in Tel Aviv revolves around weekly parties, and not necessarily designated bars or clubs like most cities around the world - which makes the city attractive, renewing and attracting many tourists.
Ahead of the largest gay pride weekend ever (June 10-8, 2023), we have compiled the recommendations and mandatory destinations for the gay tourist in Israel, and not only. Here are all the places you must go on a gay pride visit in Tel Aviv.
