Gregg Drinkwater of Jewish Mosaic has taken photos of an August 2, 2009 rally in Jerusalem mourning the slaying of two young LGBTQ youth in Tel Aviv. On August 1, a masked murderer entered a Tel Aviv community center and shot randomly, killing Liz Trobishi (16) and Nir Katz (26), may their memories be for a blessing, and wounding ten others. The gunman has not yet been found. Rallies have been held to remember the dead and to protest Jewish homophobia in Tel Aviv and throughout the world. That this rally took place in Jerusalem, the scene of considerable tension over lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans sexuality, gives hope for the future.
