A Queer Country takes us on a riveting journey through Israel’s LGBT history. The film celebrates the community’s remarkable achievement in making Israel – Tel Aviv in particular – the gay capital of the Middle East, whilst also considering the oft-heard accusations of so-called ‘pinkwashing’ of other human rights violations. Indeed, the community’s success stories are often overshadowed by the conflicted nature of Israeli society, discriminatory laws and homophobic attacks. While displaying cautious optimism, A Queer Country shows the battle is not yet over.
