H. Alan Scott on 'Pinkwashing' in Israel

H. Alan Scott on 'Pinkwashing' in Israel

Back in May, we interviewed L.A.-based comedian and writer H Alan Scott about converting to Judaism, surviving cancer, and his deep love of The Golden Girls.We recently caught up with H Alan by phone to discuss his first trip to Israel (for Tel Aviv Pride!) and his subsequent Newsweek article about "pinkwashing" and the BDS movement. We discussed LGBT politics, Zionism, and anti-Semitism—and of course, hummus. Though we talked before the Chicago Dyke March controversy, this conversation should still help contextualize the debates currently taking place in the LGBT community vis-à-vis Israel.We hope you enjoy this bonus midweek dose of Unorthodox!
