The first transgender officer in the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) visited Portland last week, and his appearance was greeted by protesters opposed to the pinkwashing (using a positive association with the LGBTQIA+ community to distract from bad behavior) of the Israeli military and its occupation of Palestine. The event took place at the Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education in NW Portland. KBOO reporter Layla Kanaan has this story.
