Pinkwashing Exposed: Seattle Fights Back!
Directed by Dean Spade ∙ 2015 ∙ United States ∙ 56'
"Pinkwashing" is a term activists have coined for when countries engaged in terrible human rights violations promote themselves as "gay friendly" to improve their public image. Israel is the country most famous for this strategy, having initiated it as part of a rebranding campaign in which has been engaged in for the last decade to distract from the human rights abuses it is committing against Palestinians. PINKWASHING EXPOSED: SEATTLE FIGHTS BACK! explores how pinkwashing works and what activists are doing to fight back.
