A Wider Bridge’s Laurie Grauer will be on a panel in Farmington Hills, Michigan, tonight to discuss “Refusing to Choose: LGBTQ, Jewish and Pro-Israel.” Laurie will discuss her experiences being kicked out of the Chicago Dyke March for carrying a Jewish Pride Flag.

Grauer said this event will give those involved an opportunity to discuss how those who are Jewish and gay can be more included in the LGBT community.

“I’m just from those who are directly involved, and saying how can we be more inclusive within the LGBT community as a whole,” Grauer said. “How can we be present and still be able to represent who we are, Jewish and gay.”

That’s one of the many questions that will be addressed during the event “Refusing to Choose, LGBT, Jewish, and Pro-Israel”, being held Tuesday, September 26, 2017, at the Holocaust Memorial Center located on Orchard Lake Road. The event is free to attend.
