Deputy Foreign Minister Idan Roll presides over a gay pride event at the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem on the final day of LGBQT+ pride month.
“To create change, you need different people from all walks of life,” says Roll, who is openly gay. “Change can be made by legislators and diplomats, journalists and artists, but no less by those working in high-tech or any other job who simply ask their human resources managers to hold pride events in the office. You don’t have to be a social activist to be an important part of change.”
The event was the first time the Foreign Ministry has officially marked Pride Month, and it invited a range of foreign ambassadors to take part.
