Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took to Facebook on Wednesday to address the LGBT community, as Tel Aviv kicked off its annual Pride Week celebrations on June 7.

"The struggle for every person to be recognized as equal before the law is a long struggle," Netanyahu wrote on his social media page, "and there is still a long way to go."

"As Pride Week continues, I want to send my blessing to the LGBT community," the premier added. "I am proud that Israel is among the most open countries in the world."

Tel Aviv’s 17th Pride Parade will take place on Friday, June 12, under the banner "Tel Aviv Loves all Genders."
