    For the first ever time Israel will host an International Gay and Lesbian Tourism Association (IGLTA) convention, which will be attended by 20 travel agents from around the world specializing in gay tourism.

    The conference will begin on Saturday and culminate in a symposium conducted at the gay community's center in Tel Aviv's Meir Park.

    The gathering is being organized by the Tel Aviv-Jaffa municipality's tourism foundation headed by Etty Gargir and in collaboration with the Gay and Lesbian Association and the Tel Aviv Hotel Association. Tel Aviv's tourism foundation recently joined IGLTA.

    Participating in the event will also be IGLTA's Executive-Director John Tanzella.

    The travel agents that will be coming from abroad will hold a tour in Israeli tourist attractions in Jerusalem, the Dead Sea and northern Israel, and will also hold meetings with gay community members. The agents are also slated to visit various sites in Tel Aviv in order to market them for gay and lesbians around the world.

    I'm sure that making one of the biggest cities in an orthodox Jewish country surrounded by, and more or less at war with, several fundamentalist Muslim organisations and Muslim countries will turn out to be a safe and good decision.

    On the other hand, those middle eastern countries could do with a more stylish counter-culture.

    As a matter of fact, the gay community of Tel Aviv is (at least partly) a byproduct of muslim fundamentalism, since every year, thousands of gay arabs flock to IsraŽl because their lives are threatened in their own native countries.

    When they have to flee, they often have no other options left.

    I may be Jewish, but I'm okay with this, because I, for one, am tolerant to gay peoples' sexual preferences.
