I know a post about part 2 of my coming out is due, but this is news and thought it should be blogged about. I'm sure lots people who read this blog either attended the event at Yeshiva University, or have already read about it. But this is for everyone else. Kol hakavod to the panelists, it really took alot of guts to get up there and say what you did.
Being Gay In The Orthodox World: A Conversation with Members of the YU Community, was hosted by the YU Tolerance Club and Wurzweiler School of Social Work. Of course I wasn't in New York but had I been, I would've liked to have been there. I'm not really going to talk much about it. I just thought I'd put this out there, and see what everyone else thinks.
Here's a link to the transcript found on another blog The Curious Jew.
Alot can be lost in a written transcript, so here are some links to videos taken of the event - click here.
Finally here are some links to the media attention it received.
The Jerusalem Post
The Jewish Star
The YU Commentator
Now it's all out there, this is only the beginning, i can assure you. I'd love to know what my readers think of the whole thing.
