English title: Pride in Israel
Author(s): Irit Adler -
Type: Report, working paper
Comparative findings from the ESS 2002-2012 surveys show that in Israel there is a steady rate of respondents who agree that gays and lesbians should be free to live their own life as they wish, with higher rates of women who agree to this compared with men. The position towards gays and lesbians negatively correlates with degree of religiosity (more religious respondents less agree with this position) and with political position (respondents who place themselves towards the right tend less agree with this position). At the same time, despite the very low rates of respondents who feel that belong to the victim of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, Israel has shown the most significant increase in this rate in the decade between 2002 and 2012, an increase primarily reflected in the survey conducted in 2012.
