Café Q is a non-denominational meeting place for LGBTQ teens from Summit and surrounding towns to drop in to meet new people, listen to music, enjoy some snacks, and just hang out in a safe and comfortable environment. Café Q is staffed and chaperoned by members of Beth Hatikvah who are themselves gay or are parents of LGBTQ children. Janice Masvidal, the group’s chairperson, notes that “More young people are coming to terms with their sexuality and gender identity earlier in life, and they can often feel alienated from their peer groups, reluctant to speak to straight and cis-gender people about what they’re experiencing. We think they should have a safe place where they can meet other kids who understand what they’re going through and where they can just relax and be themselves.” Congregation Beth Hatikvah plans to run the café every third Sunday of the month, from 3-5 pm. As the project evolves, the teens themselves will help to determine Café Q’s future activities. For more information, email cafeQ@bethhatikvah.org.
