JQY Panel at Queens College:
Growing Up Gay in an Orthodox World: A Tribe Talks Event!
When: Wednesday, April 24th at 6:15pm
Where: Queens College Hillel, 65-30 Kissena Blvd, Student Union Room 206, Flushing, New York 11367
For the first time ever, a
group of Queens College (QC) students will speak about their
experiences growing up gay and Orthodox. All are welcome to join in this
historic conversation— bring questions!
Last semester, Tribe Magazine (http://hilleltribe.com/),
a student-run Hillel publication, featured an article by an anonymous
QC student titled, "Growing Up Gay in an Orthodox World: My Final Game
of Tag," which was about his experiences being gay in the Orthodox
Within 24 hours the article received more than one thousand views, and became to this day one of the most popular articles on our site.
As a result, Tribe has decided to collaborate with JQY
to host a discussion on being gay and Orthodox. The moderator will be
Mordechai Levovitz, QC alumnus and co-executive director of JQY. This
conversation will be the first of its kind at Queens College, and a rare
opportunity to hear firsthand from your QC peers the issues that gay
people raised Orthodox face.
Light refreshments will be served.
