Israel’s First Gay Divorce
Former Israeli MK Uzi Even has made history again after he and his former partner of more than two decades were granted what is being billed as the country’s first legally sanctioned homosexual divorce.
The decision earlier this month is considered especially ironic, since same-sex marriages cannot be legally conducted in the Israel.
Even, 72, and his partner of 23 years, Amit Kama, 52, married in Toronto in 2004, soon after Canada approved same-sex marriages.
Even, the first openly gay member of Knesset, was profiled in Moment’s recent feature about gay life in Israel. To read more about Even and other trailblazers in “The New Normal,” click here.
