Pinkwashing to Pinkwatching


 

 

As solidarity with the Palestinian struggle for freedom, justice, and equality expands across the globe, Israel and its allies have attempted to quash the movement by either trying to shut down activism for Palestinian rights or by attempting to whitewash Israel’s war crimes.

Pinkwashing describes the disingenuous invocation of LGBTQIA rights by Israel and its supporters in an attempt to divert attention from its atrocities against Palestinians. Pinkwashing seeks to transform public perception of Israel from an oppressive state to a gay-friendly one by juxtaposing this false image with a racist portrayal of Palestinian and Arab societies as backwards, repressive, and intolerant.

Join Palestinian queer and trans activists for a discussion on why we must resist this normalization effort, especially in this political moment.
