Every June the city of Tel Aviv gets dressed up in rainbow colors and thousands flock to the city that was dubbed by the New York Times the ‘Mediterranean Capital of Cool’ to enjoy a choc-a-block week of amazing LGBT-friendly events, culminating with the famous Tel Aviv Gay Pride Parade on the Friday. Starting in the morning with activities for the whole family, the parade is attended by hundreds of thousands of Israelis and tourists.
Tel Aviv is also known as one of the gayest cities in the world. In fact, around 25% of the population of this buzzing city are gay! Tel Aviv is colorful and creative, open and accepting. Everywhere you go in the city is welcoming and gay friendly. You’ll find gay hotels, clubs, bars, and Tel Aviv even has its own gay beach!
Tel Aviv is known as a party city that doesn’t sleep year round, and it gets even more colorful and lively during Pride Week. An abundance of events catering to the LGBT community take place throughout the city all week long, including:
But, don’t forget to make some time for rest and relaxation at your luxury Tel Aviv hotel between events!
Guests who want to chill out while they are in the city will find that there are a wealth of things to do. Art lovers can make the most of the opportunity to visit local galleries and exhibitions. The Tel Aviv Museum of Art, one of the country’s leading cultural institutions, should not be missed. Tel Aviv has a great shopping scene, with large malls as well as interesting markets (taking a market tour is highly recommended). You’ll find food markets, antique markets, a superb arts and crafts fair that’s open on Tuesdays and Fridays and a great flea market in Old Jaffa, a great place to learn about the local culture and pick up gifts to take back home. If you’re a history lover you’ll enjoy visiting the local museums and taking a tour of Old Jaffa, or you could just relax and enjoy the local café culture.
With so much going on and so many return visitors for Tel Aviv Pride Week each year we recommend booking your accommodation in Tel Aviv early, because hotels tend to book up quickly during Pride Season.
