‘Lesbians Who Tech’ Make Their Mark At Gay Pride Tel Aviv, Embracing Diversity And All Things High-Tech And LGBT | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it
For one week in June, Israel’s second city drums to a different beat: A mass of bronzed and oiled bodies descend on beachside bars and cafes festooned with rainbow flags, downing lunchtime mojitos to a soundtrack of pumping techno. This is Tel Aviv Gay Pride, the culmination of which is a traffic-stopping parade Friday that attracts some 200,000 people from around the world. Despite the predominance of muscled men on a rolling catwalk of ever smaller swim shorts, “Women in the Community” is the 2016 theme, and behind the scenes, it’s LGBT women who are really shaking things up.
