Israelis gathered in Jerusalem to take part in the city’s annual Pride parade on Thursday. According to several news reports, 20,000 people swept the streets of Jerusalem on Thursday for its annual Pride. While some reports put the number of attendees at 35,000, which would make the event the biggest ever in Jerusalem, Hadashot TV news said organizers were disappointed that the turnout was not higher. The demonstration was highly political, with many attendees protesting a recent law denying gay couples the right to surrogacy. Many criticised Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government and called for him to resign.
