PAG Gay Party Line @ Barzilay Club

Situated just below the Hilton hotel, Hilton beach is the place to check out Israeli gay men. With sexy atmosphere and beautiful tanned bodies this beach is absolutely outrageous (especially since it borders with the only religious beach in TLV). Very busy during summers, exquisite sunsets October through November (not that anyone comes for that).
TLV Pride Parade
Unlike Jerusalem, Tel Aviv embraces its pride parade. Traditionally held in June, this colorful event takes over the streets like a huge wave of sweat, sound and love. Trucks with dancers, street artists, activist groups for peace and human rights, all march along to the sound of very loud music. The full spectrum of human rainbow celebrating solidarity with lesbian, gay, bi and trans community.
Unruly and ultra happy gay bar, often overflowing to the street. You can't miss the giant flag out side nor the exhibitionist vibe and people dancing in couples on the side walks. Different music every night and lots of laughs. From 8pm till dawn.
