Pour Your Heart Out: A Wine Tasting and Storytelling Event

May 20 @ 7:00 PM

Many a comparison can be drawn between winemaking and the Jewish LGBTQ+
experience, and we’re not just saying that because we want to throw a wine
tasting event. Think about it…Just as there are countless varietals of wine,
each with its own flavor profile and history, the LGBTQ+ community is made up
of diverse identities and personal stories. Then there’s the concept of
terroir —how a wine’s flavor is influenced by its environment—sound familiar?
And lest we forget that grapes must often withstand adverse conditions to
produce wine, just like the LGBTQ+ community’s resilience and adaptivity. Ok,
now that we’ve established that a wine tasting is the perfect way to dive into
talking about the Jewish LGBTQ+ experience, we would like to formally invite
you to a wine tasting and storytelling event featuring four fabulous wines and
four equally fabulous community members who will share their stories. Heavy
apps will be served, non-alcoholic beverages will be available and there will
be plenty of time to socialize.

This event is being offered at no cost. Please consider making a donation to
Federation’s 2024 Annual Campaign if you have not done so this year. You can
donate (https://jewishdetroit.org/donate).

Please RSVP no later than May 16.
