When researching my previous post on the top summer destinations for gay travelers, I stumbled on the Flickr photography by Tom Giebel of Atomische. With his permission, I’m sharing some of his photos from the 2011 gay pride in Tel Aviv. Assuming the weather will be nice (and really—June in the Middle East shouldn’t be anything but warm & sunny), I should have an equally fun time at this year’s pride. I’ll be taking photos and videos of the event, so be sure you stay tuned and subscribe!

And just for fun, here’s a sneak peak of at least one thing I’ll be up to while I’m in Tel Aviv. Watch the video and see if you can guess what I’ll be doing with a suitcase full of Andrew Christian underwear.
