Fight for Trans Rights
Sunday, June 12 | 2 – 4 pm | Georgia State Capitol
Pride celebrations are critical are because gender and sexually diverse people experience disproportionate harassment, discrimination, and alienation. In 2022 there have been over 285 anti-LGBTQ+ pieces of legislation across the country. In Georgia, the GA High School Sports Association chose to mandate discrimination against transgender youth in school sports. This decision can be reversed. Come to the Solidarity Rally for transgender youth on Sun. June 12 from 2-4 at the Georgia State Capitol.
Words Matter: Queer Reads with SOJOURN
Wednesday, June 22 | 7:30 pm | Virtual
Words Matter: Queer Reads with SOJOURN is a book discussion series where we focus on gender and sexually diverse Jewish authors. Each month, they will be reading and discussing a queer Jewish work of fiction, nonfiction, or memoir. The meetings are over Zoom to discuss the readings and the importance of queer Jewish perspectives. Learn more and register.
Pride Outside: A Musical Celebration!
Pride Outside is SOJOURN’s musical celebration for national Pride month! After 2 years of Pride Inside, we’re excited to gather in person, enjoy some local bands, and be in community with one another. The event will take place on Sunday, June 26 at 6 pm, and will feature The PussyWillows and Khaliko. Register to attend here!
Although the world celebrates Pride in June, Atlanta’s Festival and Parade is in October (Thursday, October 8 through Friday, October 9, 2022). Get ready to break participation records from our Jewish community.
