pinkwashingPinkwashing Exposed: Seattle Fights Back, By Dean Spade

Follow Queers Against Israeli Apartheid’s campaign to get the City of Seattle’s LGBT Commission to cancel a meeting about LGBT rights in Israel. The meeting, which was funded by the Israeli Consulate, was part of a propaganda tour for Israel. There was a massive backlash against the organizers of the campaign in the mainstream LGBT community. The film focuses on Israel’s injustices and the queer fight against pinkwashing, while raising important questions about the LGBT community’s role in and connection to other liberation movements.
