Human Rights: Learning from the risk-takers

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray has been taking bold steps to help his constituents throughout his political career, but coming to Israel and the Palestinian Authority this week has been an unconventional move.

Murray, who is one of the top gay public officials in America, came to Tel Aviv for its “40 Years of Pride” conference that brought together a diverse group of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender leaders from around the world, representing dozens of nations and communities, with an array of religious and secular practices, people of many races, ethnicities, sexual orientations and gender identities.

The conference was organized by The Aguda – The Israeli National LGBT Task Force and A Wider Bridge, North America’s pro-Israel LGBT organization.
