From Boston: A Note from Alyssa Hartstein

The first speaker we had was Keshet, an organization that stands up for LGBT rights in the Jewish community. Keshet brought in a lady who is queer, meaning that she was born genetically female, yet gender-wise identified as both male and female. I had never met a queer individual, so this was really an experience that I will remember. It opened my eyes and I'm sure many other participants', as well.
