Gay Tel Aviv, IsraelTel Aviv’s Tourism Association has begun a drive to rebrand the Israeli city as a popular gay destination. The association launched a six-month initiative this week called Tel Aviv Gay Vibe, which aims to encourage gay people from all over the world to visit the city, although it will primarily target gays and lesbians in France and Germany.

Etti Gargir, chief executive of the tourism association, said the project was designed to welcome gay people to Tel Aviv. She said: “The gay market, they have money to spend and they love very much the stylised life of Tel Aviv. They like the good life.”

The NIS 340,000 (£57,000) campaign will offer discounted travel and flights, plus free city tours and restaurant vouchers.
