Mako Pride

mako-logoThe Pride channel of Mako has Israel’s largest and richest content for the LGBT community: gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people. The content of the Channel spans a  variety of areas: local and international news, updates on worldwide pride events, cultural events, parties, LGBT scene, personal columns of the members of the LGBT community, blogs, LGBT tourism and vacations in the country and around the world, “coming out column” and more.

Since it was launched in 2011,  the channel managed to raise awareness for the LGBT community in the country, being the mouthpiece for LGBT activists and influential personalities, from within the LGBT community and from the outside, to raise issues related to the LGBT community onto the daily

agenda- from cultural events, plays, concerts and parties to discrimination and homophobia. Mako Pride was the first medium to have ever made a list of the 50 Most Powerful LGBT People in Israel (known as “Community Hall of Fame”). Mako Pride also covered the Israeli elections in 2012 from an LGBT angle, covered the gay pride parades in 10 different cities, has collaborated with Gay Pride in Tel Aviv, Eilat, with TLVFest LGBT Film Festival and more.

Mako Pride  was launched on 1 September 2011, and has since become the heart of the gay community in Israel, with many articles and daily updates and thousands of hits. Also, Mako Pride’s most-active Facebook page contains over 6,000 “Likes”.
