Israel has the largest gay population in Tel Aviv and is the most LGBTQ friendly city in the world. Considering Israel is very liberal and accepting of LGBTQ on a massive scale, they must have Gay Marriages legalized

Marriages in Israel are controlled by religious courts. For Jews, these are strictly ultra-Orthodox courts and the Reform rabbinate has no legal authority to marry people. For Christians and Muslims, the courts are similarly conservative. If you are an atheist, you usually have to marry within the court that represents your family's traditional affiliation. This is actually a holdover from previous rule (British or Ottoman, I don't remember) and a lot of Israelis are frustrated with it; however, the religious have enough influence to keep it in place.
Now, that's to get married IN Israel. The religious maintain the power over marriages that are formed in Israel; however, the state will recognize any and all unions formed outside of it. That includes those that do not conform to any religious standards, like interfaith couples or homosexual ones. For many Israelis who either don't want their wedding to conform to religious standards, or can't marry through religious courts for whatever reason, they have to go abroad to tie the knot. Cyprus is a popular destination for this. It's by far NOT ideal, but at least it's something.

In Apartheid Israel, if you want to be married, the government will only marry you under certain segregational laws to differentiate between Goyims and Pagans.
But if you were married outside the temporary state of Israel, they recognize it, but you are tagged as a Pagan.
Israel is the last Apartheid in 2020.
