In the dizzying spin of the 21st century, we have achieved marriage equality in all 50 states for LGBTQ people, there are openly gay and lesbian leaders in every field, and transgender rabbis, athletes, actors, government leaders, and everyday Americans are more able to live their lives as their truest selves. We will examine Jewish texts that deal with gender, sexuality, and inclusion as a way to situate the conversation within a Jewish context. You may be surprised to learn how much Judaism has to see about these very contemporary issues, and how advanced Jewish teachings have been on these sometimes-controversial topics.
