Lunch and Learn: LGBTQ

Welcome to the Fifth Session of The Lunch and Learn: LGBTQ in Israel, A Story of Struggle and Achievements

With the race towards PRIDE month, we will take a look together on the history, achievements, and struggles of the LGBTQ Community in Israel. In a country with strong religious dominance, the LGBTQ community is coping with a complex reality. While Tel Aviv is hosting the largest PRIDE Parade in the Middle East and is a cultural center for the LGBTQ community, there are still struggles for acceptance and civil rights.

In this session we will explore themes such as: 

  • What were the achievements of the LGBTQ Community in getting recognition and rights?
  • The mixed views of religious Jewish streams in Israel towards the LGBTQ Community
  • What are the main struggles of the Israeli LGBTQ community nowadays?
  • The LGBTQ community outside of Tel Aviv

Israeli food and drinks will be served!

This event is FREE and open to all. Please REGISTER as space is very limited.

About the Lunch and Learn Series:

Each month, Ophir will be hosting an hour-long open-tent discussion exploring themes focused on Israel, sharing stories, and enjoying free snacks and drinks!
