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?
