Hundreds attend Jerusalem rally in support of capital’s LGBT community

One month after a religious zealot stabbed to death Shira Banki and seriously wounded five others at Jerusalem’s annual Gay Pride Parade, hundreds gathered in Safra Square to call for greater tolerance of the capital’s marginalized LGBT community.

Amid markedly heightened security, a cross-section of gay rights supporters expressed their hope that the lessons of the tragedy had been learned.

Holding a sign saying “Love is Love,” David Yogev of Kibbutz Tzuba joined his wife, Yonit, at the rally to support their 23-year-old gay daughter, whom they accompanied at the parade.
