On Thursday, I caught a glimpse of the 2011 Jerusalem Pride Parade. Held at Gan HaPaamon (Liberty Bell Park), the parade was secured by policeman, security guards, and several Magen David Adom ambulances lined up on the curb.
The crowd was much smaller than it was at Tel Aviv Pride last month. Walking down Agron Street, I was pleasantly surprised to see pride flags waving from street lamp posts. Unfortunately I missed the parade itself, but at least I made the one in Tel Aviv.
Here’s a link to a Haaretz article on the event: http://www.haaretz.com/news/national/gay-pride-returns-to-jerusalem-1.375722
