From a Walk With Pride photographer:
This woman showed up to share her feelings on Jesus. One of the many things I have come to admire about the LGBT communities that I’ve met is their sense of humor. She isn’t yelled at, or pushed away. Instead, she is invited up on one of the floats and spends the entire Pride trying to preach to the beats of Lady Gaga and Madonna.










TEL AVIV, ISRAEL:
