    Since this pro-pinkwashing article was published, I think on balance the editorial team should also try and publish one of the many anti pinkwashing articles that have appeared…so that both sides of the debate can be reflected…some of these anti-pw articles can be found:

    To the readers: Scott Piro is a PR specialist who has been linked to the discredited Gay Middle East organisation (which was proven this past year to have ties to the Israeli government) and to A Wider Bridge, which is working to counter anti-occupation activism by promoting Israel as a site for gay rights, etc.

    For other articles that go into a fact by fact analysis of writings by folks like Scott Piro:
