When the JOH was founded in 1997, many were incredulous as to whether LGBT people even existed in Jerusalem, let alone whether they could sustain a vibrant LGBT center. Much has changed since then. In the intervening years the JOH has firmly established itself in our city, becoming a leading LGBT service and advocacy organization with deeply committed volunteers, hundreds of supporters in Israel and abroad, and thousands touched by our message. Our annual Jerusalem Pride marches have become the largest human-rights demonstrations in Jerusalem, creating an important legal precedent for freedom of speech in Israel. We now run a wide range of programming such as free, anonymous, rapid HIV-testing, a thriving youth program, cultural events and holiday celebrations, all the while advocating for equality on behalf of the LGBT community in Jerusalem and Israel.
