First, an apology: I really sincerely was intending to embed this video into my post so as to save my readers the hassel of a seperate site. But alas, try as I might, I could not convince WordPress to do my bidding.
And so, I provide you with the link to the talk I gave in September at the International BiCon in London:
Love, rage and the occupation: bisexual politics in Israel/Palestine
The Israeli occupation of Palestine has had a deep influence over both external and internal LGBTQ and bisexual/pansexual politics. What is the connection between the occupation and inner LGBTQ violence? How does that connect to last year’s Bar-No’ar shooting? How are all of these events related to bisexual erasure? And what does the Israeli bisexual community think about all this?
(For more topics mentioned in the talk, check out the tags).
Video length: 69 mins. Language: English, no subtitles :(
Please feel free to ask me any questions or to make any comments.
