Interview with Sarah Weil

LGBTQ Activist Sarah Weil joined Molly Livingstone and Voice Of Israel’s Raoul Wootliff in-studio to discuss Jerusalem’s LGBTQ community, the city’s recent Gay Pride march, and a controversy that erupted with the Jerusalem Open House and the extreme political elements that dominate the institution.

“I’m a firm believer that the LGBTQ Rights march is very important to the city of Jerusalem. It gives visibility to a community that is largely invisible. If you take the statistics, the numbers, you could say that about 10% of the population is LGBTQ, in Jerusalem let’s say a little bit less because people tend to leave, so let’s say about 7%, so a rough estimate is that there’s about 40,000 LGBTQ people in the city, and you would never know that.”
