Tel-Aviv got a bit more gay yesterday after the Israeli city’s first gay community center opened its doors. Mayor Ron Huldai appeared at the dedication ceremony, saying, “The home will serve to reflect the plurastic spirit of Tel Aviv, and the desire to honor and respect all minorities. We see ourselves as a trailblazing society. We decided to found this institution out of the belief that it is necessary.” Now, if only they can do something about that Palestinian situation! [Haaretz]
