Tel Aviv-Yafo

Tel Aviv Pride: June 17, 2022 Known as the gay capital of the Middle East, Tel Aviv celebrates Israel’s LGBTQ community with Tel Aviv Pride, a week-long series of totally fun events. Tel Aviv is a diverse city with multicultural influences, tourists from all over the world, and super open-minded locals. Every summer, folks of every gender, religion and color flood the streets and gather for a celebration of acceptance, love and joy. This year the parade will start at 10am with a large fair. At 12pm, the parade will launch from Ben Tsiyon – Melchett towards Bograshov St, Ben Yehuda and the Herbert Samual Promenade. Rolling late into the evening, you can expect a parade of artists and DJ sets alongside food stands and colorful Pride merch. The parade’s last stop is the Charles Clore Garden, where thousands of people get down to live shows, hang out in bars and enjoy an amazing view of Tel Aviv’s blue beach. In town for Pride and want to see more of the country? Hop on a Gay Bus between and make stops in Tel Aviv, Jaffa, Jerusalem, Masada and the Dead Sea and Galilee.

One of the most vibrant cities on the planet, Tel Aviv is an ideal late summer destination full of delicious restaurants, sites to see, and rich cultural importance. Israel rolled out a passport earlier this year that allowed users to show if they had been vaccinated or have recently recovered, and when things became safer they temporarily canceled the vaccination pass. This passport may come back, so keep updated in case you need to download anything prior to traveling to Tel Aviv.

Throughout the Middle East, Tel Aviv is easily one of the most exciting and accepting destinations for LGBTQ+ travel. Tel Aviv has one of the largest Pride celebrations in the world, with seemingly endless events and parties to fill up a month of stimulating activities. The city also has a happening nightlife culture and plenty of forward-thinking citizens that makes being true to yourself not difficult at all.
