JQ International (Member of WCGLBTJ)
Who we are?
JQ International is a Gay, Lesbian, Bi and Transgender (GLBT) Jewish movement founded to serve as an infrastructure and community building space for GLBT Jews. It provides an opportunity to connect with others and build programs and services that foster a healthy fusion of GLBT and Jewish Identity. JQ Programming offers GLBT Jews the opportunity to reconnect to Jewish communal and spiritual life with a strong sense of self. Pride in a GLBT Jewish identity is established through a wide variety of programs and services developed by JQ to foster and strengthen leadership, activism and social action.
Programming is thematically built around the GLBT Jewish lifecycle; however, our programs are open to all supportive community members regardless of sexual orientation or religious affiliation. All are welcome and encouraged to join us.
JQ International utilizes years of successful GLBT Jewish community building to produce best practice resources. These easy to replicate program kits are available for other GLBT Jewish institutions and grassroots projects. Through programming and marketing consultation, GLBT identity education, and safe school training seminars, JQ provides training for any Jewish institution seeking to further understand the needs of its GLBT community members.
JQ International Inc. is a membership-based organization dedicated to the advancement of Jewish equality of sexual orientation and gender identity via social and educational programming, community service and activism. JQ is committed to providing quality programs and services catered to membership needs and inspired by Jewish values and the concept of Clal Yisrael. JQ will create an atmosphere that fosters understanding, tolerance and the realization that all Jews are a dynamic force in American society and a valued asset in the Jewish communal and spiritual worlds.
