Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
British activist Kevin Ovenden, longtime anti-war organizer for Palestinian and LGBTQ rights provides historical context to Israel's campaign to counter the BDS movement by promoting Israel as a destination for fun seeking LGBTQ community members. Contrary to the government's propaganda, Kevin speaks of the hostility that the orthodox and settler communities hold toward LGBTQs .

Supporters of the Israeli government are using that country's alleged tolerance of LGBTQ's to divert attention from its appalling human rights record verses Palestinians.

U.S. Israeli supporters front wealthy NGOs like the National LGBT Task Force in this effort, while Palestinians, both straight and LGBTQ face systemic thefts of their land, arbitrary imprisonments and wide spread tortures. Ovenden speaks about their struggle there and what we can do here. He is a currently a member of the Respect Party's leadership, and an organizer of Viva Palestina.
