A member of the Israeli police forensic team collects evidence at the site where Yishai Shlissel, an ultra-orthodox Jew, stabbed six people taking part in a Gay Pride march in central Jerusalem on July 30, 2015, in a repeat of a 2005 attack for which he served 10 years behind bars, police and medics said. Shlissel was released from jail three weeks ago after having served his sentence for the attack a decade ago when three marchers were wounded, a police spokesman said.

With the July 30 Gay Pride attacks still fresh in Jerusalem's mind, two men decided to conduct a social experiment to further explain what it's like to be gay in Jerusalem. The pair acting as a couple are identified as Shai and Ophir, filmed by Jerusalem news station, Ynetnews.

This type of video has been replicated in countries all over the world, with a variety of outcomes (mostly negative). In Russia, the men were verbally attacked and in Ukraine, physically attacked.

In Jerusalem, unfortunately things are not much different. Onlookers appear to be in disgust by this harmless and very mild public display of affection. The couple faces verbal abuse for most of their walk around the nation's capital.
