Anonymous asked: As a gay , is it better to live in Palestine or in israel ?
The Basic Law of the Palestinian Constitution guarantee “freedom of bodily integrity and freedom from discrimination on the grounds of race, sex, colour, religion, political views, or disability.”
Society is complicated everywhere , true gays face racism but this also is worldwide thing . In israel which is accused of touting gay rights in order to downplay its alleged oppression of the Palestinians and to fix the image of it as a criminal Apartheid state , israel is trying to mask the occupation by the gay tourism initiative . Plus , racism is a major thing that you will find and not only because you’re gay but also as a not Jewish israeli person .
When living in a society , you have to live among its traditions and respect it . Palestinian society is conservative . That’s a fact that we can’t deny . So, for gay or not you have to be careful about your public actions . At the same time , Palestinians take in consider the fact that you as a foreigner have lived in a different environment .

Return is the dream of generations. It’s my dream, the dream of my family, people and country. We must be united to make it true . The refugee camp reminds me everyday that I am a refugee and I will not stay here forever .
