Gay Tel Aviv is wishing for peace

Author: , July 30th, 2014

Who would have thought, even only a month ago, that this is how summer of 2014 will look like? I still remember us dancing and laughing on Gay Pride Tel Aviv, walking down the streets and feeling the warm winds of summer arriving slowly to our sleepless, crazy, vivid Gay Tel Aviv city, with an optimistic promises for an unforgettable summer new experiences, and new friends.

It crazy how fast can our reality change into something completely different. Instead of thousands of tourists arriving from all over the world, filling the streets, the restaurants, the beaches ,the numerous hotels in Tel Aviv, and basically the entire city, we only see half packed venues, instead of hearing laughs we mostly hear crying, instead of peace and good neighboring, we’re in the middle of war.

This are one of the most difficult paradox in our lives – being in such a politically charged situation, surrounded by difficult neighbors, while trying to live our daily routine , as do all the rest of us in other countries, is even hard during calmer days, not to mention during times of war and vengeance. The feelings are mixed and you are torn between the bad news you hear on TV, the alarms you hear almost everyday, which send you right to the closest shelter and the weird vibe which is not familiar the the hedonist vibe of Gay Tel Aviv, and the inner force which makes you want to go on with your normal life, makes you want to go dancing, to tell your friends from abroad not to give on their Gay travel Israel plans, to go tanning at the beach and to let yourself escape from this hard reality.

At the moment, we’re still in the middle of this war, without knowing when and how it will end. It’s weird to even think about Gay Israel travel or to recommend on some of the new Gay friendly hotels in Tel Aviv which were recently opened, or even to deal with anything that has to do with friends and visitors from abroad. Let’s just pray for better days, hope that this too will end soon and things will, slowly go back to normal, and let’s all pray for peace in the Middle East!

Updates for Gay Pride Tel Aviv 2014

Author: , June 11th, 2014

June is finally here, and with it, the warm days and the cool evening breezes, the opening of the swimming season, both at the several swimming pools in town and of course – at the beaches, the numerous open air events and open air bars, the overflow of tourists (and obviously of gay tourists!) from all over the world, and one big, happy, colorful Gay Pride Tel Aviv parade.

As on every year, Gay Tel Aviv city throws one of the biggest, loudest, happiest prides in the world, with a strong emphasis on on bringing Gay tourists to celebrate Gay Pride Tel Aviv with the locals. During that time of the year, almost all of the Gay hotels Tel Aviv offers (and actually almost all the hotels in Tel Aviv) are fully booked, with reservations made several month earlier, so If you’re planning on coming to this year’s Gay Pride Tel Aviv week, and still haven’t booked your hotel in Tel Aviv, it might be a slightly problem, but don’t let it stop you from attending Gay Tel Aviv awaiting weekend: with some efforts you’ll find a place to crash, and you sure don’t want to miss this year’s Gay Israel’s secular capital’s attractions for Gay Pride Tel Aviv 2014.

Pride month has already started with the annual TLV Fest – Gay Tel Aviv’s film festival, with a most interesting and diverse content. During the festival, which takes places at the Cinematheque, you can watch many gay and lesbian films from all over the world, participate in master classes, attend film pitching and mingle with cultural Gays and Lesbians.


The official Gay Beach Tel Aviv, the Hilton Beach, also already started its activity, with its magnificent Pride Beach event: live DJ sets from the talented local Gay and Lesbian Djs, right on the beach, throughout the day, bringing all swimmers and sunbather the best music around – priceless.

The official Gay Pride Tel Aviv parade will take place this Friday (June 13th), with a different route this year – It will start at Gan Meir as always, walk through Bugrashov Street, then, via Gay Tel Aviv beach promenade will head south, till it ends at Charles Clore Park, just a few meters before Jaffa. As the park is bigger than Gordon Beach (where the parade ended in the past), there is more room for people, access for the disabled, convenient space for the Gay families etc. Right after Gay Pride Tel Aviv parade, you’ll be ready to hit the main Gay parties (Shirazi’s FFF and Forever Tel Aviv), after parties, and maybe even get some time to rest before this dreamy Gay holiday in Tel Aviv is over.

Happy Pride!
