This Torah portion focuses on the story of Joseph, a dreamer and a visionary who was reviled and exiled by his own siblings. The author argues that this story is profoundly relevant to LGBTQ Jews. Many of us can recall our first feelings of being outsiders – an intuitive sense that we were somehow different. Like Joseph, we risk loss, ostracism and betrayal, but we also follow that inner compass with a deep faith. Just like Joseph, when we are expressing our true queer Jewish selves, God is “with” us.
