The news comes just 24 months after the murder of a counselor
and teenage girl at Tel Aviv's Bar Noar gay centre
As reported by DIVA at the time, both Nir Katz and 16-year-old Liz
Trubishi were killed in the as-yet-unsolved attack.
Now, the youth club might have to suspend its weekly evening
programming due to financial problems. According to website
Haaretz, management says it's deliberating whether to hold a final
evening of group support and activities today.
Since the shooting, a security guard has been stationed at the
building during events, the site adds. Despite this, it has still
suffered vandalism - including damage to an air-conditioning
Now, the facility's director, Shaul Ganon, says the center needs
NIS 1,200 a month to continue offering a support network to local
gay, lesbian and bisexual youths.
It currently receives no external or governmental funding and is
reliant entirely on funds raised by staff.
