Named "the best gay city in the world" by American Airlines, Tel Aviv is one of the most popular destinations for LGBT tourists internationally, with a large LGBT community. American journalist David Kaufman has described the city as a place "packed with the kind of ‘we're here, we're queer’ vibe more typically found in Sydney and San Francisco. The city hosts its well-known pride parade, the biggest in Asia, attracting over 200,000 people yearly. In January 2008, Tel Aviv's municipality established the city's LGBT Community centre, providing all of the municipal and cultural services to the LGBT community under one roof. In December 2008, Tel Aviv began putting together a team of gay athletes for the 2009 World Outgames in Copenhagen. In addition, Tel Aviv hosts an annual LGBT Film Festival.



Morrissey likes Tel Aviv and Israel, because they like him. He's that easy. It's no coincidence that he started to write songs about the place after receiving the keys to the city. If Russia decided to start appraising him, he would be up there posing with Vladimir Putin in ten seconds flat. And the same goes for North Korea or any other dictatorship. The man has no moral or principles anymore -- it's all about him and people liking him.
