Just before the main gay pride parade that will take place in the big city, the young pastry chef discovered that the flags she hung outside her business had been vandalized • The Tel Aviv municipality said: "It is precisely because of such cases that pride events are important"

Or Spitz opened Wednesday morning with great frustration, following an incident of hatred against the gay community that took place outside her private business in Tel Aviv. In front of her Instagram followers, she documented the chain of flags cut as an act of protest against LGBT people, with a sticker with hateful words attached to it.

Or Spitz is horrified

"I arrive at the bakery and see that the chain of pride flags is torn. I say, 'Well, I'll go to the other side, I'll bring it and connect them.' And what do I see? First of all, someone cut it on purpose, and besides they put a shocking hate sticker on it," she said.

In another story she posted immediately afterward, she documented the sticker placed on the rainbow flag that read: "Nothing to be proud of." "You don't have to connect, you don't have to love, but don't spread hatred and corruption," she sent a message of tolerance to her followers. "Wait wait, I'm sitting on the cameras," she said of her intention to find out who was behind the homophobic act.

Soon after, she recanted. "Well, I don't have the nerves to sit on the cameras. I skimmed it, and I just feel like it fills me with negative energy in the morning, so I gave up. Please come spread love," she urged her clients.

The Tel Aviv-Yafo municipality said in response: "It is precisely because of such cases that there is great importance to holding pride events, whose purpose is to strengthen the gay community and fight for equality. We invite each and every one of you to take part in the pride parade that will take place on Thursday, and in the pride party that will take place on Friday in Ganei Yehoshua Park."
