Gay Israel

< I?d love to get some information about Israeli hotels and gay life.
An article from the Fall 2008 issue of The Out Traveler said, "This summer marked the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the state of Israel, the first modern Jewish nation, the Middle East?s first parliamentary democracy, and perhaps the only country in the region where a viable, visible, and vocal LGBT culture not only exists but also thrives. ? Israel has emerged as a land of unlikely gay-straight alliances and unusual cultural contradictions, and it?s unexpectedly becoming a gay tourism mecca."

Tel Aviv is the center of Israel?s gay scene -- with new bars, gyms, saunas, and all-hours parties appearing almost monthly and the city?s tolerant vibe continuing to thrive unchallenged. The city also has a gay beach, Hilton Beach.

Our reader?s guide to Tel Aviv describes the city as ?a country within a country. It has its own way of life. It's a very liberal city -- that welcomes everyone, no matter who or what you are. You always feel welcomed.?

The Atlas Hotel group has several gay-popular hotels in Tel Aviv, including the newly opened Art+Hotel.
