PRIDE MONTH SERIES: Eliad Cohen

Happy Pride Month! Our Pride Month Series is BACK for another year! It’s time to celebrate the fabulous people who make up our glorious LGBTQ+ community!

Each day during Pride Month we will be highlighting one of those people. Today, we ask Eliad Cohen, ahead of his next London event 75 next week, what pride means to them.

What does Pride mean to you?

For me, Pride is a celebration of our identity, community, and culture. It is a symbol of resistance against discrimination, bigotry, and violence directed toward minority individuals. Pride events provide a safe space for LGBTQ+ people to express their true selves without fear of judgment or persecution. Through pride, we hope to raise awareness and promote acceptance of LGBTQ+ individuals, as well as advocate for our basic human rights. Overall, gay pride represents a powerful statement of self-love, acceptance, and solidarity.

Tell us about your first Pride experience, what & where was it?

My first gay pride was when I was 20 years old, I was still a soldier in the army.
I decided to go to Tel Aviv Pride even though I was in the closet back at the time.
It was inspiring to see all the people celebrating life and being open og who they are.

What is your favorite part of Pride?

Celebrating who we are and seeing all our brothers and sisters and allies celebrating with us. 

Do you have a favorite Pride memory?

My first gay Pride in Tel Aviv. 

Why do you think Pride is still important?

We did a long way to fight for our rights but yet we still have a long way to go.
Especially those days with all what’s going on in the world.

You can next see Eliad at his next London Event 75 on June 15th!
