The month of June has come to be recognized as Pride month, filled with parades and festivals celebrating LGBTQ communities. It’s also a time when efforts to cynically use LGBTQ rights as a distraction and normalization of occupation, apartheid, and settler colonialism – a concept known as pinkwashing – come to the fore. We will spend this meeting talking about what pinkwashing is, how it functions, and how Palestinian queers and allies are resisting against Israeli pinkwashing, as well as how queers and allies are resisting against US pinkwashing.
All are welcome to attend!
We hold open meetings on the last Tuesday of every month, alternating between Cambridge and Jamaica Plain. Jewish Voice for Peace-Boston activists and allies are welcome. We’ll have pizza! (Let us know if that doesn’t fit your diet).
