Tel Aviv Gay Pride Parade, the biggest in Asia

Almost 200,000 people from Israel and abroad attended the Tel Aviv Pride Parade, in the nation's capital.

Pride parades began in the city in 1997, and every year the participation increases.

The theme of this year’s pride has been "Tel Aviv loves all genders", in support of transgender people.

A number of streets were closed down, and traffic redirected along the march route. Police were deployed as security, but there were no outbreaks of violent, nor other incidents.

The event drew almost 200,000 people, including Conchita Wurst, the Austrian bearded drag queen, who won the 2014 Eurovision contest.

Tel Aviv has the largest Pride Parade in Asia. Congrats!
