The tour will not be your average tourist holiday. We will combine the visits to various interesting places with closer look at the Israeli-palestinian society. A basic GayLoveSpirit 2 days workshop will take place in the end. These two events are separated.
It will be a trip among friends: We will be 12 men maximum, and 7 friends have already confirmed, so five places are still available for this wonderful Late-Summer experience in Israel and Palestine.
Visiting Israel-Palestine these days is not an easy mission, the Palestinian are advocating for a boycott and the Israelis are doing all they can to attract gay men to the “gay capital” of the Middle East. Therefore, to be a concious tourist in this culturally rich and problematic place is a challenge.
This tour will try to give us the opportunity to look closer at the situation in Israel-Palestine, Is it really a gay heaven? What's happening 2 hours away from Tel-Aviv? The tour will have a human rights approach with an emphasis on gay issues both for Israelis and the Palestinians. We will also explore historical and special sites, eat very good food and have fun!
The aim of this tour is to open our hearts and eyes to one another. We believe that as gay men who had to fight for recognition and wish to explore our sexuality and identity on a wider level, we can't ignore other struggles in our travels.
We take the challenge to enjoy our trip with open eyes!
