In the past few years, Israel has become an ideal haven for gay people in the Middle East. Tel Aviv became known as the gay capital and it is not uncommon to see gay groups touring the street with a guided tour. This is part of the continued growth in gay travel. Economically, this group has become very important in world travel, global tourism and even within Israeli tourism.
But what can be seen in a gay visit to Israel? More than meets the eye. One place to start with Hilton directly. It has a famous gay beach right next to it. There is nothing unusual for the Middle East paradox, where the religious beach, which allows for unequal retreat, is located right next to the gay beach. Above these two on the cliff is the “Independence Park”, an ancient meeting place for close gay men. Historically, there are records indicating that it is a secret meeting place under the British Mandate, dating back to the end of World War I. Today, there is an ongoing debate about whether a place like this should be in the shadows or should it be lit and canceled. When walking to the town, no outside person can help but notice the vibrant LGBT community, which proudly appears on the streets. Tel Aviv does not have many LGBT companies specifically.
Instead, the majority of places and bars are gay-friendly. It is said that in the city center gay population can reach 30%. Whether this estimate is high or low, it does not matter, even for the fact that it has been shown on the very strong LGBTQ effect.
Tel Aviv is also home to the largest (and only) pride march in the Middle East – 50,000 people participate each year. It has its own LGBT Community Center, home to the major NGOs that support the community. There is also a private health clinic for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the community center, located in the heart of the city in Jean-Meir. The city deserves access to various other reasons: countless art galleries, museums and concerts. It is also a world heritage site of international architecture, the place where the State of Israel was proclaimed. Culinary enthusiasts will be impressed by fine dining, and above all, the nightlife is unique. It is not without reason to choose Tel Aviv time and again as one of the most important destinations in the world.
