Questions for Reflection and Discussion

  • What are the connections we see between the legalization of gay marriage in the US and Pinkwashing in I/P?
  • Why is it important for us to make these connections?
  • How does pinkwashing by Brand Israel support the occupation?
  • How might passage of gay marriage serve as pinkwashing in the US?  Who are we being distracted from seeing?
  • How do we bend our queerness toward justice?
  • What can queer jews bring to BDS?
  • How does this inform our work moving forward?  (Pride?)
  • What kind of messaging could we use to bring these connections into Pride?

meeting Sunday to talk pride and pinkwashing

Please join us Sunday July 19th from 4:45 – 6:45 PM at 204 Rigsbee Ave. #201, Durham. Please join our newly renamed chapter — now Jewish Voice for Peace Triangle NC — for our monthly meeting this Sunday.

We’ll be discussing the recent Supreme Court ruling in favor of same-sex marriage and what pride means for Jews in solidarity with Palestine — including talking about the Durham Pride Parade, and about pinkwashing in Israel/Palestine.

We’ll also present work from our four working groups and have time for announcements and reportbacks.

Please contact us at trianglenc [at] with any questions or comments.

Hope to see you there!
