Parashat Ha’azinu (Deuteronomy 32:1–52)
This chapter discusses Parashat Ha'azinu of Deuteronomy, which recounts end of the Israelites' forty-year journey in the wilderness. The Israelites' escape from Egypt and their wandering in the desert resembles the first forty years of lesbian, gay, bi, trans, intersex, and queer (LGBTIQ) liberation. Like Moses, queers stood up in anger and passion to defy homophobia which “infected” them with depression, alcoholism, and drug abuse. These LGBTIQ people fought with the courage to stop queer oppression in hope that the advances in the social and political position of queers would led the next generation of LGBT people to recount the success of LGBTIQ liberation.
