SHAME MONSTER: Dan Fishback's Queer Jewish Anti-Zionist Trip to Israel/Palestine

Earlier this summer, playwright Dan Fishback traveled to Israel/Palestine to do research for an upcoming theater project. He spent a month meeting with non-violent Palestinian activists, Israeli settlers and others, ending with a surreal visit to Tel Aviv during Pride Week. Throughout his travels, Fishback also "interviewed" many Israeli and Palestinian men on Grindr. In this multimedia talk, he will share stories from his trip, bear witness to the realities of apartheid, and offer thoughts on BDS, censorship and the various ways U.S. Americans engage with the ongoing occupation of Palestine.
Fishback's travels were made possible by a research grant from the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation.
Suggested donation of $5 to benefit the Bureau.
No one turned away for lack of funds.
