Queer is the New Pink: How Queer Jews Moved to the Forefront of Jewish Culture

Journal of Men, Masculinities and Spirituality
Volume 1 Issue 1 (Jan 2007)

Abstract: While queers and Jews have always been part of the cultural landscape, queer Jews have tended to be rather ambivalent about being both queer and Jewish. However, in recent years this connection is being promoted in a more proactive fashion. This paper highlights three examples of queer Jews whose cultural performances rely on being both queer and Jewish, suggesting queer Jews are playing an increasingly significant role in Jewish culture.
