Thousands marched in the Holy Land on Thursday as part of the Jerusalem LGBT equality march.
There were no floats and no DJs, as this year’s Jerusalem March was being held in remembrance for the 2 people tragically killed at last year’s LGBT youth center shooting in Tel Aviv. An estimated 1,500 police were in attendance, more as a preventative measure, as protests were minor.
Participants marched from Independence Park to the Parliament building, where a rally was held asking the government to promote equality and help end the violence toward Israel’s LGBT community.
