As Pride Month begins, the Foreign Ministry has not raised a pride flag at its Jerusalem headquarters as it did in the two years Yair Lapid was foreign minister and Idan Roll, an openly gay man, was his deputy.
However, Ambassador Michael Herzog did raise a pride flag in front of Israel’s embassy in Washington DC.
“It will be up for the entirety of #PrideMonth as part of our dedication to inclusivity, equality and the celebration of diversity,” the embassy tweets.
