5/8/2013 Horowitz’s announcement in Hebrew:
Could it be time for the gayest little outpost in the Middle East to get its very first openly gay mayor? In 2009, 48-year-old former journalist Nitzan Horowitz became the second openly gay Knesset member in Israel’s history, and became the first to conduct unofficial same-sex marriage ceremonies in protest of anti-gay comments made by Chief Rabbinate Eli Ben Dahan.
If elected in October’s elections, Horowitz will become the very first openly gay mayor not only of Tel Aviv, but of any city in Israel. In a press release announcing his candidacy, Horowitz told reports about his love for Tel Aviv, and his plans to tackle rising real estate prices, reform mass transit, and introduce new city planning for overcrowded neighborhoods.
