Be the change we want

In the reality of Israeli society today – the proud gay community is largely concentrated in the city of Tel Aviv and its surroundings. Surely in the youth environment in Israel – we are seeing less and less significant adult LGBT characters in their lives. This explains the choice of Israeli youth today to “stay in the closet” and hide their sexual and / or gender identity from their families and closest relatives. Conducted by the Magnus Hirschfeld Iggy Research Institute, we saw that in communities in the periphery, more youth report lack of figures or access to knowledge about LGBT issues. Iggy aims to be a significant social space for every boy and girl from the gay community in Israel, and create a significant social space for them. And grow in it.
