Pinkwash

By: Hera Chan. Pinkwash, marker and acrylic on paper, 2011

 

 

“Pinkwashing is a strategy used in order to gain LGBT support for the Israeli state by painting a picture of Israel as a safe-haven for gays against the backdrop of an oppressive and backward Middle-East. Israel’s mythologized acceptance of gays has been used on the international stage to take the focus away its ongoing and brutal oppression of Palestinians.”
