Kanga Quote translation:

"Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself" - Quote submitted by Dennis Njoroge

This is the TRTL kanga honoring Palestine's Queer history.

It is important to know that the State of Palestine is mainly divided into two territories: the Gaza strip, and the West Bank. And though homosexual acts remain illegal in Gaza, same-sex sexual acts have actually been legal in the West Bank since 1951. That said, Palestine's Queer rights movement has mainly organized around the more crucial issue of Israel's colonization and illegal occupation of the State of Palestine. A large part of this queer organizing involves fighting "Pinkwashing", which is Israel's use of the queer rights conversation to appear progressive (and distract from its war crimes and violations) while also depicting Palestinians/Arabs/Muslims as backwards in this regard. It is this fight by Palestinian Queer activists against the issue of pinkwashing that inspired the choice of the kanga's quote that says: "Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself".

Further depicted in the kanga design are the two Queer rights organizations alQaws (in the center) and Aswat (in the border). AlQaws was the first to be formed in 2001, with Aswat being established in 2002 to address the needs of Palestinian queer women.

This kanga is printed on polyester flag material and measures 1m by 1.5m metres.
