Media Roots Radio: Pinkwashing Israel & US Empire, Gays Against Mayor Pete w/ Ryan Wentz

Posted on by

Abby and Robbie talk to queer anti-imperialist activist Ryan Wentz about the concept of pinkwashing, homonationalism, brand Israel and how it evolved to whitewash Israel’s apartheid state. He also discusses how identity politics and LGBTQ rights are tokenized and exploited by US empire, as well as the campaign ‘Gays Against Mayor Pete’—why Buttigieg’s policies would disproportionately impact gay, trans and other marginalized identities.
