Press

  • Front Row Reviews
    A bracing documentary, showing a snapshot within the LGBT community and preserving a story, which will hopefully go on to inspire many others.
  • The Online Citizen
    LGBT rights in Israel have been described as the most advanced in the Middle East. Same-sex marriages are not performed in the country, but Israel recognises same-sex marriages registered overseas, making it the first country in Asia to do so. In Tel Aviv, the country’s second most populous city, it’s not unusual to see same-sex couples kissing, nor to attend gay parties at night.
