Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality has announced the return of Tel Aviv Pride Parade on June 25, representing the first mega-event in the city following the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Parade marks the climax of the annual Pride Month celebrations in Tel Aviv-Yafo, taking place every June since 1998 and attracting hundreds of thousands of Israelis and foreign visitors who join the citywide festivities every year.
Over 250,000 people attended the Parade in 2019, recognised as one of the leading events on the global LGBTQ+ calendar and the largest event of its kind in the Middle East. The Parade, featuring party trucks and DJs, will start at 12pm at Tel Aviv’s Bograshov Beach, before continuing southwards along the seafront promenade and finishing at Charles Clore Park – where a huge party overlooking the Mediterranean Sea will host performances by leading artists on two main stages.
This year, the slogan A Community That Creates Change will be at the centre of the Pride Month events, born of the desire to strengthen social involvement and shared activities within LGBTQ+ community groups and wider society.
There will be more than 50 Pride events taking place up and down the country. Pride month will be widely celebrated in Tel Aviv, with a host of key events ranging from drag shows and parties to tours and more.
Ron Huldai, Mayor of Tel Aviv-Yafo, said: “Pride events in Tel Aviv-Yafo are a long-standing tradition, centred on a message of equality, acceptance, and human and civil rights.
“Tel Aviv-Yafo represents a warm home for all communities residing here, and is proud to be a ground-breaking city in its approach to the LGBTQ+ community and a source of international inspiration.
“This year, more than ever, we will celebrate together, march together, and fight together for equality.”
