Queer and LGBTQ+ Jews are at that intersection, of course!
“At the Intersection of Queer and Jewish” is Keshet’s 2022 zine that features content created by and for LGBTQ+ Jewish youth and young adults. Over the course of two months, we received submissions from LGBTQ+ Jewish creators between the ages of 13 and 24. These creations are about their experiences being Jewish and LGBTQ+, as well as the experiences and art of Jews of Color, Jews by choice, disabled Jews, and Jews from multifaith backgrounds. Our goal is to celebrate all of the creative youth in our Keshet community and to uplift their experiences by featuring them within this zine.
These teens and young adults envisioned what this project would look like and are facilitating creative workshops throughout the summer! After all submissions have been received, this group will organize and put together all of the pieces for the final edition of the zine.
