Keshet has created Jewish LGBT Heroes Posters

Keshet has created Jewish LGBT Heroes Posters -- and one is of Kate Bornstein, the transgender leader. I'm on one of the posters in one of Keshet's previous collections -- click here to see the PDF as a Google Document.

Keshet - Working for in the full inclusion of GLBT Jews in Jewish life

LGBT Jewish Heroes posters

This Sunday, May 22, is Harvey Milk's birthday. And in his honor, we are celebrating!

We've created a series of posters - starting with Harvey - celebrating LGBT Jews who have given us hope, given us courage, and transformed our world in countless ways.

Our series also honors the amazing Kate Bornstein, a writer, performer, and an unwavering voice for those who feel like they don't fit in, as well as Lesléa Newman, the wonderfully prolific author who brought us the groundbreaking book "Heather Has Two Mommies."

Supporting LGBT youth means celebrating queer heroes. June is LGBT Pride and a perfect time for you to ask your synagogue, JCC, Hillel, youth group, camp, and any Jewish institution that works with young people to display these posters.

Remember, as Harvey famously implored all of us, "And you, and you, and you... have got to give them hope."
