The tragic story of Captain (res.) Sagi Golan, a soldier in the special forces counter-terrorism unit who fell in the battle over kibbutz Be’eri, highlights the absurdity and discrimination that IDF troops from the LGBTQ community endure, not only during their service but also after their passing. On the fateful day of the massacre, Golan rushed to Be’eri without hesitation to save lives and protect families. Golan, who was supposed to marry his partner, Omer Ohana, just a week prior, led a team of troops and encountered numerous terrorists before losing his life. Despite this, according to Omer, the IDF did not recognize him as Golan’s partner and chose to ignore the matter.
