J Street U, Jewish Voice for Peace, and Middle Eastern Perspectives
are excited to bring you a free, on-campus screening of the newly
released “ORIENTED”, a documentary following the lives of three gay
Palestinian friends in Tel Aviv confronting their national and sexual
identities. The film received critical acclaim on the festival circuit
this past year; the subjects have been described as “at once
exceptional and entirely ordinary”. If you’re at all interested in the
complexities and hardships of life in Israel and the Occupied
Palestinian Territories, LGBTQ issues, religion, or the intersection
of all three, please come through!

First Middle Eastern Perspectives Meeting

perspectivesFrom the incredible Rajaa Elidrissi ’16:

Come join us for our first meeting of the year!

Our group’s goal is to create a comfortable and safe space for people who identify as Middle Eastern, Arab, Persian, Turkish, and etc. We also want members that do not identify as Middle Eastern, but who are interested in learning more about the region and its people to participate as well. We want to provide a view of the region that is not tarnished by western media. Topics of discussion will include identity, religion, intersectionality, feminism, media perceptions, gender roles, and etc.

We are also part of the Student of Color Coalition and we want to collaborate with as many SOC groups as possible this year!

Date: Wednesday, September 23
Time:8:30-9:30 PM
