Rivlin officially welcomes gay youth group to the President’s Residence

Wearing white emblazoned maroon colored tee-shirts announcing in Hebrew and English across the front “We are everywhere,” a representative group of slightly more than a dozen members of IGI, a Hebrew acronym for Gay Youth Group, was officially received on Wednesday at the President’s Residence by President Reuven Rivlin.

The group headed by Mindy Michaeli, the national CEO of IGI, was accompanied by former MK Nitzan Horowitz, who is openly gay and was warmly embraced by Rivlin, Gal Uchovsky, a prominent member of Israel’s gay community and a television and print media personality, and Yaniv Weizman, who holds the Gay portfolio on the Tel Aviv City Council.
