LGBT group warns graffiti on pride center precursor to attack on community

The Aguda Association for LGBTQ Equality says graffiti sprayed on the Tel Aviv LGBTQ Community Center is a “warning light” to a future violent attack against the community.

“LGBT-phobia is already running wild,” the statement reads. “Last week, we saw a 4 percent increase in reports of LGBT-phobia in the public space, and at demonstrations with community members who faced curses, spitting, threats, burning of pride flags and even physical violence.”

Aguda urges the government to condemn the hatred faced by the LGBT community “before it’s too late to promise complete personal security to members of the LGBT community.”
