Our radio it's v star who represented israel in twenty sixteen You just heard him singing. chevy amman. with rich isaac. Tell me what you know about that song. In about colby star So lovie star. I i ran into him i think he just. I came in in the mid scene in two thousand nine when he participated in the seven season of kahad and he came in seventh eventually but He performed this duet that we saw with al-qaeda of hooah has gone went onto make religious music in light of that. I think it's really sweet to see them. Singing to each other about The song written by ron dunker. Who is also gay like kobe. And also written by an elected buckner. We haven't seen much of star since he represented his have we. I mean i. I know all right interesting rich. You you've mentioned a couple of times of some prominent israeli singers. Who have spent some time. Lobbying the government to be able to have a baby by surrogate. Tell me what has been going on. What have they been fighting for. And what's going on with that today. Have they made any headway. As so my understanding is that the government's explicitly prioritised straight couples for adoption and surrogacy and the israeli government that is and this sparked a lot of protests them speaking out by a celebrities and and protests. Monday public I don't believe the situations changed any but nevertheless gay couples continued to have children through adoption and surrogacy end mosley. They have to go abroad to do that. So we have a new government in israel. Maybe the minister of health now is a gay man so perhaps something will change. I don't know all right. Well that's exciting. You know you know it would be nice if finally it looks like this is a battle. That's being waged for for a very long time and maybe just maybe changes on the horizon. Yeah i mean. Israel took a long time. I'd say you does at one. Point was twenty years behind the united states but then decriminalised sodomy and Bans discrimination in employment and integrated the military long before the united states. So in many ways you know israel has leapfrog united states. And there's always go and they're always battles to fight well battles to fight but at the same time. We often find ourselves as the light a amongst the nations. And it's it's a great great thing We're on with rich.
