The Israeli GLBT Society has filed a legal suit against the Makor Rishon newspaper, after the latter refused to publish an ad which calls on gay youth from the orthodox sector to contact them in case of distress. Makor Rishon states in response that “The reason that the ad wasn’t published is the concern that it would hurt the readers’ feelings, since this newspaper has a unique style that targets a specific audience. Therefore, the newspaper is careful about keeping the content in line with its unique style.” (Hebrew, English)
