As thousands of gay men and women from around the world head to the city for Pride week, Tim reveals how Tel Aviv has become a leading gay city following a concerted campaign by the mayor.
Critics accuse Israel of 'pink-washing' to soften its image - but Tel Aviv stands out as an oasis of gay tolerance in an otherwise hostile region.
