TBI Updates

Gen Silent
Sunday, June 2, 6:00 pm at TBI

The Queer Chavurah will show the film Gen Silent.  This hour-long movie follows six LGBTQ+ elders seeking healthcare as they age.  Will they have to go back into the closet to get the care they need?  We are inviting our friends and allies at TBI and in the wider community to learn about this important issue.  At a time when LGBTQ+ people are under renewed attack, it is important not only for us, but for our friends and family to understand what is at stake.  Please plan to attend the showing and participate in the follow up discussion.  And please invite everyone you know!
