Thousands of Israelis attended gay pride parades in Jerusalem and Haifa last Friday. Jerusalem hosted its second gay pride parade, while Haifa held its first. The Jerusalem parade originally was slated for June 13, but was postponed after the one of the community’s activists, Alan Beer, was killed in a June 11 suicide bombing.
