Israelian Food Journalist Gil Hovav Visited LGL`s Community Center

Gil Hovav, the leading culinary journalist and TV personality in Israel, visited the LGL`s community centre on January 20, 2017. The event was organized in collaboration with Embassy of Israel in Lithuania.

This delightful event provided with an opportunity for LGL`s community members to learn about the situation of LGBT* people in Israel. Israel is very open and tolerant country when it comes to LGBT* rights. Gil is living in Israel with his partner and together they are raising up their daughter. Gil shared a lot of inspirational stories from his life. He talked about his army service where he met with his present partner, about his personal and professional coming out and about his experience as a parent.

Participants of the event had many curious questions that Gil was happy to answer. His vivid talking was full of hope with the clear message – there is always a way even if the times are difficult. You can see the atmosphere of the event in the attached photogallery.
