Gay and Lesbian Travel
Israel has earned a reputation as a popular destination for gay and lesbian travelers. The country recognizes same-sex marriages performed abroad, bans discrimination based on sexual orientation, and has long allowed gays to serve openly in the military. Most gays gravitate toward Tel Aviv, one of the most gay-friendly cities in the world. The city has a gay beach, a vibrant gay nightclub scene, an annual gay film festival, and a gay pride parade that attracts 100,000 participants every June. The Red Sea resort of Eilat is renowned for its pride festival in May.
