"Quentin Hill is the Northeast Manager of 'A Wider Bridge,' an American organization that provides outreach to the LGBT community in Israel. For this incredible event, Quentin will be coming to Cornell University to speak about the history of the LGBT community in Israel, as well as successes among the community and challenges they still face today. I was inspired to put together this event after learning about the LGBT community when I was in Tel Aviv this past summer. As an advocate for Israel on campus, I strive to educate the Cornell community about the many unique aspects of Israel, such as the fact that Tel Aviv is the gay capital of the Middle East. I am EXTREMELY excited for this event, and I hope to see everybody there!"
