Tourists told JPostTV that Tel Aviv is much more open and accepting than many other places they have been to, even saying that Tel Aviv is so gay friendly that they forget they are in Israel, a place otherwise filled with religious and political tension.

But these tensions were far away from the Hilton beach on Thursday afternoon where hundreds of half naked men and women were drinking and dancing to celebrate Pride.
