LGBTQIA+: Queer Story Slam with Lex, Jess and Rabbi Megan
January 26, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST
Stories are integral to the Jewish experience and to the queer experience. Stories help us understand ourselves, understand where we’ve been, and understand where we’re going. Language can be tremendously empowering, to connect with others, build support, and find community.
Join LGBTQIA+ Tribe Leader Jess Meyers (she/they), Class of 2023 Fellow Lex Horwitz (they/them), and Rabbi Megan GoldMarche (she/her), as we gather our LGBTQIA+ community together on Zoom to share our stories. Whether you’re completely sure of your identities or still questioning, there’s always space to open up doors, gain new understanding, and learn more intersectional allyship for other members of the community with different identities from our own.
Come ready to share, or just come ready to listen. There will be no pressure to speak. All we ask is that you come with an open mind and an open heart, free from judgment and preconceived notions. Please reach out to [email protected] with any questions or accessibility requests.
Tribe 12 connects people in their 20s/30s to Jewish life and community in Philadelphia today so they will choose to stay connected tomorrow. We welcome people who identify as Jewish, whose partner is Jewish, or who are exploring Judaism. Tribe 12 seeks to include all individuals regardless of gender or identity expression, religious history and practice, health and disability whether visible or invisible, and financial circumstances. For questions, to request accommodations, or just to say hi, reach out to [email protected].
