Pink money Pink capitalism Pink colonialism

After 41 years of civilization (after Stonewall)) I think It’s time to stop and think about what the LGBTQ community is doing internationally to spread its fight for “freedom”. I will off and on write about here what I call Pink Colonialism. Part of the gay community has started a liberation campaign towards the Middle East with the aim of liberate those “poor” Arabs.
With no further knowledge about the culture, except what is told to us in the biased media, do they believe that what we have done can be done in the same way in the Middle East.
Stop the pink colonialism and get some unbiased knowledge of a culture that is so rich and full of liberated sexuality at least until we came in the nineteenth century and fucked it up like so many other things.

Long Time no see

I haven’t been here for a while but I haven’t been lazy. I have working around the subject arbitrary LGBTQ colonialism. I’m back and there will be some changes in this blog. This blog will handle anything contemporary, in the moment, old, old school, too cool for school kind of subjects around the Middle East and we and them. Am I we? Who created them? How we is we? And how them is them?

See yaa

Press release about my mission!!!!!!!!!

A of Arabia wants to dismantle the power structure that is around the Middle East, where middle-aged white heterosexual men sit with their head in deep folds and want to explain the Middle East for us. He wants to challenge the colonial discourse that has put the Middle East in a hostage crisis and give people a voice.

A of Arabia is studying Arabic and was in Syria and the surrounding area last year. Meanwhile in Syria, he made including a mini documentary of P3's program "Verkligheten" in which he was called “ A of Arabia with a mission to penetrate Syria's "secret" gay society”. The program experienced instead of explaining to the listener and Apollo quickly realized that this was something that had never been done before. He not only experiences an LGBTQ community but began to question the self-image displayed by the "unfortunate" Arabs in the Swedish media.
He will kick off with this mini-documentary and his travels around the Levant (Jordan, Syria and Lebanon) among gay activists and people who do not choose to label themselves with the Western sexual labels. There he criticizes the production of knowledge that we are taught in the West. He attacked the unfortunate existence of Islamophobia in Swedish LGBTQ society and plays with the sexual Orientalism that exist around the 'Arab'.
