The Aguda and Mayor Yona Yahav built a team from leading activists of the local LGBT programs, who will follow the launching process closely and will make sure that the new place meets all the needs of the community.

“I was born and raised in Haifa, this is the landscape of my wounded childhood,” wrote Chen Arieli, co-chair of the Aguda. “I’m happy to accompany the process of building an LGBT center in Haifa so that today’s young girls won’t experience the difficulties that I suffered as a girl, someone who couldn’t feel as though she belonged.”
