Israel is known for its innovation in technology, and as in every western-world country, its social media is thriving. Facebook and YouTube are the leading social media platforms in Israel, followed by Instagram and Twitter.
If you ever thought about following LGBT Israelis on social media, we’ve put together this top-10 social media power list for you for 2017, including some LGBT Israelis you should know. It’s true, most of them are in Hebrew, so it’s the perfect time to start using your English-Hebrew dictionary, or your automatic translator button – or just look at the pictures.
#3 Kim Levi (Kim Connection)
For many people outside Israel this name is probably unknown, but Kim “Connection” is probably the 2nd most famous transgender singer in Israel (after Dana International). She’s fun, beautiful and hilarious- but knows when it’s time to get serious. She posts often on Facebook, does frequent Facebook Live videos (especially before Shabbat). Being an activist for her community, Kim also posts updates on the transgender community. Unfortunately, Kim doesn’t post in English at all.
