QUEERTY SELECTS — Far too often, gays and lesbians are put in that single box, their identities defined by their sexuality. But we’re no more “just gay” than heteros are “just straight.” We’re black and Hispanic, physically disabled and identical twins, blind, members of a royal family, athletes, and Irish. So we’re always fascinated by gay men and women whose multiple cultures so strongly define them. In the Jewish Exponent, we learn about Jewish young people who embrace both identities: being gay and a chosen person. [Jewish Exponent]
