‘It reminds us of how much we’re hated’

For a community that has suffered so many tragedies, at some point you might run the risk of having too many memorial days and not enough devoted to just living.

So said Yuval Eggert, director of the Tel Aviv gay center, the morning after at least 50 people were murdered in a terror attack on an LGBT nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

“If we do too many memorial days, too many events, it’s hard to know when we just have days to live,” Eggert said, describing how the community already marks days held in honor of those who died of AIDS, and those killed in homophobic attacks or killed in the Holocaust for being LGBT.
