Jewish? Orthodox? Gay?
You are not alone!Welcome to JQYouth! We are a social/support group made up of frum/formerly frum* gay, lesbian, bi, and trans Jews ages 17-30. We meet regularly for monthly meetings and informal social get-togethers. In addition we have an anonymous online discussion group.
On this site you can find out more about our experiences of being young, gay and frum. You'll also learn how you can become part of the JQYouth community and meet other young frum gay Jews.
JQYouth has no agenda to push. We are not affiliated with any political or religious organizations. We are just a group of guys/girls with similar experiences who have come together to support and socialize with one another.We are New York based, but we have members all over the world. It's hard enough to grow up as a frum gay Jew. It's even worse when you're isolated from the thousands of other gay Jews that are out there. Remember that you're not alone. The fact that you see this page right now indicates that you have resources at your fingertips to finding others like yourself.
Our members come from frum communities such as: Flatbush, Kew Garden Hills, Lakewood, Teaneck, Boro Park, Monsey, Crown Heights, The Upper West Side, Washington Heights, Lawrence, Hancock Park (L.A), Toronto, Montreal, Golders Green, Melbourne, Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem.

We also offer anonymous online support if you would prefer to discuss your questions/issues privately with one of the guys.
