TPFF co-presents Pinkwashing Exposed: Seattle Fights Back! with QuAIA
TPFF is proud to co-present the world premiere of the filmPinkwashing Exposed: Seattle Fights Back!
with Queers Against Israeli Apartheid
on May 3rd, 2015 at 7:30pm. Following the screening will be a discussion with QUAIA Seattle's Selma Al-Aswad and Dean Spade. The screening will be held at the Rogers Communications Centre (80 Gould Street). This is a free event.
In 2012, queer Palestine solidarity activists in the Pacific Northwestern region of the US exposed “Rainbow Generations,” an Israeli Consulate-funded propaganda tour of Israeli gay and lesbian activists. As a result, the centerpiece event hosted by the City of Seattle's LGBT Commission and other parts of the program were cancelled. A significant backlash ensued involving the Seattle City Council and Seattle's leading LGBT and HIV/AIDS organizations. Pinkwashing Exposed
explores how pinkwashing works and what local activists are doing to fight back. Join the Facebook
