Tel Aviv lies at the heart of the gay scene that identifies Israel. While many might not associate Tel Aviv with a vibrant and electric gay atmosphere, they obviously have not been there. This one city is consistently discussed as being one of the most friendly and welcoming to the gay and lesbian community. That alone should encourage you to make a visit here. If you need more reasons, consider the variety of bars and clubs in operation seemingly around the clock, numerous gay film festivals, and cultural activities galore. Being gay in Tel Aviv is fun and it is exciting. The nightlife is sizzling, so plan on staying up late into the night in the company of some of the hottest guys on the face on the planet. To round it out, remember to support the annual Gay Pride event taking place in Tel Aviv each June.
