Join Mr. Elad Strohmayer, Spokesperson of the Embassy of Israel to the United States to discuss his personal story as an openly gay Israeli diplomat.

Elad will share insights from his experiences serving in countries that are less than friendly to the LGBTQ population including his time as a young diplomat in Africa as well as how he represents the vibrant and diverse Israeli gay community in the US.
