OK, not exactly, but Mystical Politics covers Gay Pride in Jerusalem 2008:

“The parade this year seemed to me to have more younger people, and fewer of the liberal Jerusalemite pro-human rights crowd than last year. There was a hearty representation of Hadash, the Israel communist party, as well as of Meretz (a left-wing Zionist party). The communists in particular chanted very loudly for the whole length of the march. There were also representatives of Bat-Kol, an organization for religious lesbians which I hadn’t heard of before. People also came from other cities – Tel Aviv, Haifa, Beersheva – in organized groups to support their Jerusalemite kin.”
