Launched in October 2012, Rainbow Jews is a pioneering project that records and showcases Jewish lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) history from the 1950s to today. It captures the voices and experiences of Jewish LGBT people in the UK through oral histories and archive creation.
The diverse materials will be shared online, in booklets and educational resources and celebrated at the launch of the Rainbow Jews travelling exhibition during LGBT History Month in February 2014.
In addition to the main exhibition, Rainbow Jews will also be running a number of other events, which you can find more information about on their website.
On Thursday 13th February is the YJL – part of JGLG monthly meet up in Camden. Last month there was the biggest turnout ever so if you are aged 18-35 and identify as lesbian or know someone who is, please let them know: Info@jglg.org.uk.
Friday 21st February JGLG will also hold an Orthochav. For those that haven’t been, they sit down to a full Kosher four course dinner provided by one of our members. You don’t need to be Orthodox to come – it’s just a wonderful Friday night dinner with friends and a really great evening. Tickets are just £12 members, £15 non-members.
