    Over 170,000 people took part in Tel Aviv’s Pride Parade on Friday, a city spokesperson said, as the annual event inched towards pre-pandemic numbers.

    The parade, now in its 23rd year, began at noon and wrapped up around 7 p.m..

    Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai and Social Equality Minister Meirav Cohen kicked off the festivities…

    Also in attendance, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid [also the Alternate Prime Minister in the unity government] highlighted his efforts on behalf of the LGBTQ community, including the decision last year to hang a pride flag outside the Foreign Ministry for the first time.

    …“We are winning the fight for the [LGBTQ] community but it is not over, we must continue to lead it because as long as there is one LGBT child in the periphery who needs our protection, we will march in their honor,” he said.
