Notwithstanding the staged picture of gay soldiers, and leaving aside those who claim that Israel’s pride in its progressive outlook on gay rights is part of a deliberate “pinkwashing” campaign, last week’s Gay Pride Parade was really about what the City that Never Stops does best — party.

It comes as no surprise that being one of the most gay-friendly cities in the world goes hand in hand with being one of the most hopping towns around. Gays just wanna have fun.

Check out this special Size Doesn’t Matter report by Times of Israel blogger Benji Lovitt, who braved the heat and the groping multitudes to find out what makes this gay mecca tick.
