After last week’s exposé about alleged sexual assault incidents committed by producer Gal Uchovsky, one of Israel’s most prominent LGBT activists, a police complaint has been filed against him for the first time, Hebrew media reports.

Last Monday, the Kan public broadcaster published testimonies of two men who said that Uchovsky sexually assaulted them in recent years.

In response, Uchovsky, a popular TV personality, apologized and said he would be stepping down as president of IGY – Israel Gay Youth, a leading nonprofit organization serving LGBTQ youth in Israel.
