Are you Jewish? Queer? A teen? All of the above? None of the above? Then you should come to the Queer Jewish Teen group meetings! The first meeting we had, we attracted a number of students from all different schools! SOTA, Drew, Marin Academy, and Sacred Heart were all represented, so we all got to meet new people. We had a short discussion about what it means to be queer or Jewish or an ally, and then watched a ridiculous but awesome movie together. There was FREE food and the event itself was free as well.
On Friday the 2nd of November, we had our second event. It was a much smaller turnout, due to there being a lot of scheduling conflicts with our former attendees. Even though there were only six people, we still had a blast bowling. Conversation flowed, free pizza and soda was provided, and endless dance parties to bowling alley pop music was of course very present. Plus we had top hats and wigs and wax mustaches and Mardi Gras beads. I mean, what more could you want? I don’t even like bowling, but that was the most fun I had had in weeks!
So if you’re interested in these events or being part of our group, check out our page on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/groups/432166753513637/?fref=ts) and watch it to be updated for our next events!
The next event is gonna be a giant super duper awesome Channukah party, complete with gay latkes! Join us on December 13th to eat food and get crazy with some cool people. You really don’t want to miss this. And feel free to invite your friends!
