President Shimon Peres on Sunday came out in favor of gay marriage.

In an interview at a Globes conference in Tel Aviv, Peres was asked his stance on gay marriage in Israel, and responded that everybody was born equal and had a right to love who they wanted to love. 


When pressed, as to whether that was a "yes" or "no" to the whether he supported gay marriage he responded, "I think everybody will take it as a yes." 


Though the question referenced a bill that would give gay male couples equal tax status, which does not explicitly legalize gay marriage, the interviewer specifically used the term "gay marriage" in his question.
