About to shoot #MeettheHollywoodPress With @JaymesV @josephkapsch and Gil Robertson.
A year ago, my sister, @gali.hod, an Israeli clothing designer (she has her own collection called @wedressalike), decided to surprise me, her gay brother living in Los Angeles. Without telling a soul, she lovingly made my three-year-old niece her own rainbow-colored dress. The tiny frock, made of tule, came with an explanation: "It's a special dress,״ my sister said. “It’s a Pride dress. Do you know what Pride is?״ My niece shook her head. "It’s the freedom to love whoever you want.” My niece, in her gown and matching rainbow ribbons, was the belle of the parade. She got so many compliments from total strangers, she didn’t want to leave. After the parade was over, my sister sent me the sweetest gift anyone has ever given me: a video of my adorable niece, surrounded by fans, walking sassily down the streets of Tel Aviv in her new favorite LGBT dress. This year, my sister created a whole new line of dresses and tutus for the parade (including some that light up at night). I know I’m biased, but in my mind they are the most beautiful dresses I’ve ever seen. (Here are some examples for women, girls and even men below. Please contact her if you’re interested). And if you happen to be at Tel Aviv Pride next weened and see an uber cool straight mom with a 4-year-old sassy girl strutting down the street in matching rainbow dresses, give them a big hug from me — the proudest uncle in the world. Happy Pride!
