Pride Month is Coming: Tremble and Make a Jihad

Pride Month (June) is almost upon us and preparation for big events are already underway within the Jewish community. Get in touch with your local GLBT shul for more info.

In the meantime, A Jihad for Love, a new documentary looking at gay Muslims is now available on Netflix. You can watch it on your computer right now without having to wait for it to be sent to you. It’s awesome. Trembling Before G-d, the Orthodox Jewish predecessor is also available to watch right away. Watching them back to back is a pretty amazing experience. Fascinating to see how many things are the same, and how different the differences are.
