Neil Patrick Harris has been appointed Tel Aviv Pride’s International Ambassador.
Israel’s Tourism Ministry website announced his participation. The How I Met Your Mother actor is expected to attend the event, which is taking place on 14 June, with his husband David Burtka and their eight-year-old twins, Harper and Gideon.
“Tel Aviv has become a symbol of the openness and acceptance of the LGBTQ community on the world stage,” Harris said in a statement.
“We are honored to be in Israel for the first time and have the honor to take part in this beautiful celebration and to stand with the LGBTQ community in Israel and around the world, especially on the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.”
