About 2,000 people gathered last Friday under heavy police guard for a gay pride rally at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Participants waving rainbow flags and holding signs calling for civic equality thronged the stadium at the university’s Givat Ram campus. The venue was a compromise between gay activists and fervently Orthodox representatives after two weeks of violent Orthodox protests against the gathering, originally planned as a march through downtown Jerusalem.
