LGBTQ politics and Palestine: Meeting with Haneen Maikey of Al Qaws, London

20 October 2011: LGBTQ politics and Palestine: Meeting with Haneen Maikey of Al Qaws

Public meeting with Haneen Maikey (Director of alQaws Centre for Sexual and Gender Diversity in Palestinian Society, Jerusalem) ‘Queer politics and the Palestinian struggle: Ten years of activism'.

It explains the formation of a Palestinian queer movement, which evolved throughout different and major historical events in the political sphere of the region. The lecture proposes an understanding about the nature of the queer activism in Palestine, its accomplishments and challenges through the last decade and will introduce the current discourse of homonationalism and Pinkwashing in Israel from the perspective of marginalized Palestinian queers. Haneen Maikey is also a co-founder of the political movement of the Palestinian Queers for Boycott Divestment and Sanctions [PQBDS]. PQBDS is a group of Palestinian queer activists who live in Palestine, who came together to promote and stand for the Palestinian civil society call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions. alQaws for Sexual & Gender Diversity in Palestinian Society is a group of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, questioning and queer (LGBTQ) Palestinian activists who work collaboratively to break down gendered and heteronormative barriers in Palestinian society: http://www.alqaws.org
