Post-Pride Month: Exploring Intersectionality with Arya Marvazy

August 14, 2019 @ 7:00 pm

As businesses put away their Pride merchandise and parade floats are taken down, we must ask ourselves, how do we continue to work towards LGBTQ inclusion in the Jewish community year-round, not just during Pride month?

Join The Well, NEXTGen Detroit Pride and Keshet as we welcome Arya Marvazy, Managing Director of JQ International. Arya will share his story about growing up as a gay Jewish man in the Persian community in Los Angeles, followed by moderating a discussion on intersectionality and inclusion in the Jewish community. We’ll also hear from members of our local gay Jewish community. Part storytelling, part meaningful discussion and part call to action —this is an evening not to be missed!

This event is intended for young adults ages 21 to 45.

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, this event is available at no charge.
