Jerusalem Pride March 2017
Jerusalem, Israel. 3rd August, 2017. U.S. Consulate Jerusalem staff members join more than 20,000 to take part in Jerusalem's March for Pride and Tolerance from Liberty Bell Park to Independence Park. Marchers honor the memory of Shira Banki, a 16-year-old girl stabbed to death by an ultra-Orthodox man in the 2015 march. The LGBT community demands recognition, respect and tolerance in Jerusalem, in spite of the city's pious communities.
