"Jerusalem was painted in all the colors of the rainbow on Thursday to mark the city's annual gay pride parade. Hundreds of participants swarmed the streets of the capital, holding signs marking the 10th anniversary of the parade.
Hundreds of police officers and Border Guard officers are securing the crowds.
Jerusalem Open House Executive Director Elionr Sidi said that the march "was an opportunity to reflect on all the changes that Jerusalem has undergone in the past decade.
"We no longer see incidents like in 2005 and 2006 of incitement, stabbing and riots against the participants. Despite these changes, there is still a lot to be done for the members of the proud community," she added."
