Eze Raymond sits for a portrait. 10 July 2019, Tel Aviv, Israel. Eze was born in Mumbai, lived most of his life in London, and moved to Tel Aviv when he was 70-years old, where he now lives close to the proud center. Despite his shyness, he is a regular participant in a proud theater circle and a social club for gay elders, who meet a few times per week. For many LGBTQ+ elders, these accustomed community-based social activities can reduce the sense of isolation and loneliness and enable community members to pay attention to the well-being of each other. With the outbreak of COVID, which was followed by strict quarantines, these important activities were mostly canceled.
