- 80 Israeli new shekels₪80
Let's uncover the untold history of forgotten and excluded queer characters, their struggles, and the changes in the LGBTQ community in Israel-Palestine. Join us as we examine solidarity, successes and contemporary struggles of the LGBTQ community. We’ll visit historical places and explore important events and changes that have shaped LGBTQ life, with a focus on Tel Aviv and beyond. Our tours will foster learning and discussion about the intersection of LGBTQ struggles with other social justice issues such as nationality, gender, ethnicity, and of course, pinkwashing. All tours will take place in central and southern Tel Aviv; you can buy the tours as singles or as a discounted bundle. The tours will be held in English- though there is a lite Hebrew tour option for students at an advanced Hebrew level. The second tour, ‘Politicization of the LGBTQ Community’ explores the politicization of the LGBTQ community after the Stonewall riots, focusing on how the community was impacted and fought back against discrimination and homophobia in Israel-Palestine and globally. The impact of AIDS and hate crimes in Haifa during the 80s and 90s will also be discussed, along with the ways in which these tragedies brought the LGBTQ community together. The challenges faced by the trans community in Israel, the emergence of drag kings in Jerusalem, and the current state of queer and trans community organizations in Israel-Palestine will also be explored. The tour concludes by examining the role of cafes and clubs in creating spaces where the LGBTQ community can express themselves freely. This tour is an opportunity to learn about the political and social history of the LGBTQ community in Israel, including its struggles, triumphs, and ongoing work to create a more inclusive and accepting society.
