Perez Hilton is a figurehead of the LGBTQ community so it’s not surprise that he’s attending pride events in more than one city around the world.
First stop: Tel Aviv!
The star posted a picture on Instagram of his face on the cover of “Israel Hayom,” the largest newspaper in Israel.
He also posted a picture of himself partying dad-style.
@TelAviv Pride is like no other I have ever been to before!! More than a celebration, it is important. It’s important for the local community and as a beacon of hope and acceptance in the Middle East. My most favorite part was the march through the city before we got to the parade on the beach. What a powerful act of togetherness and love! It was beautiful to see soooo many young people and families today! My heart is happy and full!

Hilton called Tel Aviv’s pride festivities “like no other I have been to before,” calling the celebration “a beacon of hope and acceptance in the Middle East.”
Although Hilton is not himself Jewish, he once tweeted about the “kinship” he feels with Jewish people.
Pride festivities will be taking place all over the world for LGBT Pride Month.
