Boston Out In Israel & Gaza (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, November 16, 2012
This is the second year Out In Israel month is celebrated in the Boston area. Throughout November advocacy organizations in & around Boston have joined together along with politicians, filmmakers, artists, musicians, students & other activists to celebrate the vibrant LGBT communities in Israel & Massachusetts. Out In Israel Month is a program of education & celebration. Organizers aim to educate about the status of civil rights for LGBT Israeli citizens & exchange ideas about our LGBT community & culture in both Israel & Massachusetts. Out In Israel was launched by the Consulate General of Israel to New England & is co-sponsored by the Boston LGBT Film Festival, Combined Jewish Philanthropies, Israel Campus Roundtable, Keshet, Aviv Gay Vibe & OUTTAKE MEDIA. Out In Israel engages our community in an array of programs geared to highlight Israel’s LGBT equality & recognition of all her citizens in the workplace, on the field, in the military & by the courts. This year we attended a special culinary-cultural event featuring openly gay Israeli Celebrity Chef Gil Hovav at the home of The Consul General of Israel to New England Shai Bazak in Brookline, Massachusetts. The event was fabulous & Gil will be featured on OUTTAKE VOICES next week to share his experiences. With the current conflict with Gaza we asked Hovav to give us his spin on the situation. Gil expressed his concerns for his partner & nine year old daughter who are currently back in Israel under attack.  Listen To Exclusive Audio Byte:
