Sephardic, Mizrahi and LGBTQ+: Lifting our stories out of the margins
How have LGBTQ+ experiences been represented in Sephardic-Mizrahi cultures? What are challenges that Sephardic-Mizrahi Queer Jews have faced in finding spaces that fully embrace their identities? We’ll explore these questions and then focus on the creation of a grassroots movement that has provided a vibrant and much-needed community at the intersection of LGBTQ+ and Sephardic-Mizrahi life.
Sunday September 4 • 12:00pm – 12:50pm • Shoshana Gottlieb
All about Chava: The representation of queer Jewish women in film and television
Let’s examine the ways in which television and film represent (or misrepresent) the Jewish/queer experience and how this may impact our lives and identities.
