Firehouse Chats: Identities of Pride
Time & Location
About the Event
June is International Pride Month, and 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots here in NYC. The Stonewall Riots of 1969 were a major catalyst for the Gay Liberation Movement, and the origin of Pride. We also celebrate the festival of Shavuot, a holiday commemorating the receiving of Torah at Mount Sinai. As the identities surrounding both manifestations of ‘other’ have evolved, so have the Pride Festival and Judaism in a multitude of ways. In celebration of both these radical events, we invite you to join us at FEDHouse!
The Firehouse Chats Series is presenting a podcast brunch hosting a panel of LGBT-identifying Jews and non-Jews to discuss how Pride has evolved, how it handles the notions of ‘other’, and what it means to be intersectional within these contexts. Following this discussion we will be throwing a Tea Dance, a traditional partner-switching social event for the underground gay community, with light cocktails and dairy desserts as a nod to Shavuot. We hope to see you there with your open heart and dancing shoes!
