This chapter documents changes in Israeli geography research on gender and sexuality. Moving over three decades (1990s–2018), it shows how the theoretical concepts, methodologies and experiences of participatory planning processes have changed both in identity-related focus (from women to gender, and later to LGBTQ identities) and in geographical focus (from the peripheries to the city). In reviewing the change in discourse in Israeli geography and participatory planning, we use three theoretical concepts: women’s forbidden and permitted spaces; gendered civic capacity; and LGBTQ safe urban spaces. Each case study represents a different time/space gendered and feminist planning discourse and identity perceptions.
