AdamADAM RUSSO

Secular Israeli ADAM RUSSO never wants to leave Givat Ze’ev, a small settlement north of Jerusalem, where everyone knows him as a fun-loving young man and also as a victim of a hate crime.

While marching at the head of Jerusalem’s gay pride parade in 2005, he was stabbed three times by a Haredi Jewish man.

He is a media spokesperson for gay pride and refuses to hide his identity.  Despite his fears of being attacked again, he continues to march in the city that he loves.

He and his partner AMIT recently built a home together in the settlement where Adam was raised.  They plan to perform a civil union in Israel in 2009.
