IN PICTURES | Music, dancing as hundreds attend annual Jerusalem Pride parade
Hundreds take part in a Gay Pride event in Jerusalem, with numbers limited because of coronovirus rules.
Police were out in force to secure the event that took place just under five years after a person at an LGBT rally was murdered by a Jewish religious extremist.
A gay pride parade on Thursday and the planned opening of a municipal parking lot on the Jewish sabbath will test the delicate balance between Jewish religious and secular lifestyles in Jerusalem.
Organisers of the annual parade, which has touched off anti-gay protests by ultra-Orthodox Jews in the holy city in the past, said they did not expect violence at this year's event.
