MK Ronen Hhoffman (Yesh Atid) expressed his support of the gay community in light of Ashdod's parade and said social equality is only equal when it is for everyone.

"While organizing initiatives like this across the country, it is our responsibility - public representatives - to actively promote equality in legislation," he said.
