Sky News host criticises Queers for Palestine activists dressed as Indian women

“Wouldn’t you love to see him belly dance his way onto the Gaza strip, shimmying his way through the enclave.”

Sky News host Danica De Giorgio has openly criticised the Queers for Palestine activists participating in Pride events, labelling them as “sad and confused.”

One notable moment captured on film featured a transgender man at a parade, dressed as an Indian woman and waving a Palestinian flag.

“Wouldn’t you love to see him belly dance his way onto the Gaza strip, shimmying his way through the enclave,” commented De Giorgio full of sarcasm.

A remark highlighting the ban on same-sex sexual activity in Gaza under the British Mandate Criminal Code Ordinance 1936, which carries a maximum penalty of ten years’ imprisonment, applicable only to men.

During question time in the European Parliament it was highlighted how in 2000 four Palestinians were killed for being homosexual, and hundreds were forced to flee to Israel.

As a reporter, De Giorgio is well-known to have covered major breaking news events including the 2022 Northern Rivers Flood Disaster, the NSW Black Summer Bushfires, and WA’s worst mass shooting: the Margaret River Massacre.

Her recent comments may spark controversy, drawing particular attention to the complex intersection of LGBTQ+ rights, political activism and cultural sensitivity.
