Gay watchdog honors Israeli film


An American gay media watchdog honored an Israeli film.

The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation on Tuesday awarded its annual prize for outstanding film in limited release to “The Bubble,” a drama set in Tel Aviv that features a homosexual love affair between an Israeli soldier and a Palestinian.

The alliance was set up in the early days of the AIDS crisis to monitor media reports for bias against homosexuals.
