Hi and welcome to “Oy Gay,” where being gay ain’t no shunda! The bloggers represent a wide variety of perspectives and “labels.” We have an Orthodox lesbian, a married gay man living in Laramie, an Angelino in Tel Aviv, a transgender man and many others! Each blogger brings a unique voice, identity and experience, and our hope is to provide a space to explore issues we face as Jews, LGBTQ people, and the two together.
The launch of the blog, hosted by The Jewish Journal, coincides with the 40th anniversary of Pride Weekend in Los Angeles. Though we have come far as a community, there are still plenty of issues to face, fears to confront, and showtunes to sing. “Oy Gay” will bring these insights, events, reposts, and the newest gossip from Glee straight to your home!
Enjoy, leave your own experiences and (respectful) comments, and may we together create a Kehillah, or community, wherein all feel safe and included!
