This Saturday In Manhattan

NYC Queers Against Israeli Apartheid intend to occupy Manhattan’s LGBT Center this weekend. Last February the LGBT Center refused meeting space to the group after a threatened donor boycott by porn producer Michael Lucas, who is an ardent Zionist and what some consider to be an anti-Palestinian racist. That refusal resulted in an anti-Center petition campaign from the opposing camp, which included high-profile activists Cleve Jones and Judith Butler. Saturday’s action will include a denouncement of pinkwashing.
