Military weekly in trouble over drag report
JERUSALEM | An article about offduty soldiers in Israel doubling as drag queens has gotten an Israeli military magazine into trouble.
The military said Tuesday that the weekly, Bamahane, from now on must send its articles for approval by the chief education officer.
The writer interviewed three active-duty soldiers who slip into drag after their shifts.
The article was illustrated by photos, including one of a soldier in military uniform wearing a gas mask and red over-the-knee boots with seethrough high heels.
The military said the army’s chief of the Education and Youth Corps is responsible for overseeing the magazine’s content but that this has not been enforced.
