Israel’s first gay minister makes appearance at Jerusalem Pride parade

Justice Minister Amir Ohana, Israel’s first openly gay minister, arrives at the Jerusalem Gay Pride parade.

Ohana, a member of the right-wing Likud party, was picked yesterday by Prime Minister Netanyahu to be justice minister in the transitional government that is serving until fresh Knesset elections on September 17.

As he makes his way through the crowds, a number of participants protest Ohana’s presence, chanting “shame.”
