Israel's "Pink Embassy"...
Of course, gay rights activists know nothing about this...as they typically demonstrate against Israel. This is from Tom Gross.
The Israeli Foreign Ministry is considered to be one of the most advanced in the world in terms of recognition of the rights of gay couples. Israel recognizes 10 couples of gay and lesbian diplomats who live with their partners of the same sex as married couples, granting the partners the same rights as heterosexual couples such as a diplomatic passports, insurance and salary benefits.
In Paris, the Israeli embassy has been nicknamed “the pink embassy” by other diplomats as the partners of two envoys enjoy the same rights of married couples.
One reason that gay diplomats from other nations ask for postings to Israel is that they know how tolerant the country is. The Danish ambassador to Israel, Carsten Damsgaard, who is gay and has been married to his partner for 15 years, told the Israeli paper Yediot Ahronot: “I really appreciate the openness of the Israeli Foreign Ministry. If I judge by the way we were received over here, and we’ve been here for three years, I can say that Israeli society is very open.”
Even supposedly gay-friendly countries like the United States and France, don’t go so far in helping partners of homosexual diplomats.
