Affinity Group- Application form

Introducing JQY Affinity+ Groups!

JQY Drop-in programs and community events are “all gender” spaces that reflect the full diversity of the queer Jewish experience. While everybody’s gender journey is unique, there is often something special about being around other people with common narratives, relatable backgrounds and similar stories. We are also sensitive to the reality that Jewish queer youth growing up in Orthodox communities often find safety and familiarity in “single gender” spaces. Similarly, trans and nonbinary youth deserve a space where their lives are centered. At JQY, we believe that cultural competency can embrace specificity and inclusion. Affinity groups offer participants a resource to connect with friends who share similar gender experiences growing up in the Jewish community. 

Our first Affinity+ Groups will be:

Trans/Nonbinary+ Space: A group to discuss and connect over what it’s like growing up Trans/Nonbinary in the Orthodox community. Anyone who feels that they personally could benefit from being in this space belongs in this space.  

Women’s+ Space: A group to discuss and connect over what it’s like growing up as a young woman in the Orthodox community. Anyone who feels that they personally could benefit from being in this space belongs in this space. 

Men’s+ Space: A group to discuss and connect over what it’s like growing up as a young man in the Orthodox community. Anyone who feels that they personally could benefit from being in this space belongs in this space. 

Affinity groups will include weekly Zoom discussions, special events, and social programming. 

Ages 13-23, You do not need to identify as any particular gender, sexuality or religion to be a part of a group, but we do ask that you respect the mission of each space. To make space for everyone we ask that you initially apply to the group that best fits your needs. However, you are allowed to switch or join an additional group with a new application .
