Be the King, Be the Queen, Be Everything in-Between!

Purim Shabbat Dinner
“A Gender Bending Celebration”

(Participants of any sexual orientation, gender identity and faith are always welcome!)

Purim has a long history as a chance to explore “forbidden” persona, to embrace our shadow selves, to be free for an evening - free of social constraints, free of expectations, free of the normative culture.  We are taking this tradition and applying it to gender, so come with a playful spirit. 

Be the King, Be the Queen, Be Everything in-between!

Please RSVP by Thursday 3/17 to RSVP@JQInternational.org

You may choose from the following items:

A. 2 bottles of wine
B. An appetizer, side dish or salad
C. A $20 donation to JQ (to help cover the purchase of kosher entrees)

This event is sponsored by JQ’s Trans Inclusion Committee, and is open to people of all identities and backgrounds.
