Description: 
This panel first examines pinkwashing in historical context, looking at efforts to link queer and Zionist organizing from the 1970s-1990s. Then it moves to the present, tracing Islamophobic funders' evolving investments in pinkwashing as a way to recruit queer youth and campus groups *away* from antiracist, anticolonial activism that challenges Israeli apartheid. It covers ways to expose these tactics and support student/youth and queer resistance.
