Tim Samuels BBC

Radio documentary 'Tel Aviv Comes Out' which was aired last weekend is about how the Israeli City is now marketing itself as a gay destination. The Gay Pride Festival in Tel Aviv this year attracted 100,000 people – but there are still those who think that is a “pinkwash” by the authorities, a P.R. exercise to make this Holy Land seem more liberal. Tim Samuels made the documentary & is the Presenter of ‘Men’s Hour’ on BBC Five Liv. Tim spoke to Derek earlier in the programme.

You can listen to the BBC Documentary here.

 

Rory Cowan
