The crew from Be'TLV began with a group of LGBTQ* Jews, primarily of Sephardi and Mizrahi of Middle Eastern or South American descent, and their allies.
Since 2016, we have evolved, partnering with several multicultural organizations in an effort to promote gender, religious, ethnic, and racial diversity in our communities. This allows us unique insight into numerous communities and strengthens our resolve to promote multiculturalism and diversity in the Winnipeg LGBTQ community. Each member of our team brings something unique to the group,
Our events promote a positive image of Israeli artists and culture. Through music and dance, we seek to transport our guests to the most gay friendly city in the world, Tel Aviv.
Between 2016 to present, Be’TLV has helped us provide educational, cultural events and entertainment for a combined audience of over thousands of people within the Jewish and LGBTQ communities. During the 2019 Be'TLV took part in, or organized events in Winnipeg, Edmonton, Regina, and Toronto.
This was unfortunately hampered due to Covid. Our goal is to continue this work and to promote diversity Canada wide. We aim to share our Middle Eastern Culture and continue to provide services to LGBTQ2IA Jews across Canada
At Be'TLV, everyone is welcome! We encourage our allies in the Jewish community to come out and physically show they that they support equal rights, in a safe, non-judgmental environment. This we believe will help foster greater understanding and cooperation between the LGBTQ and Jewish communities within Winnipeg. Let's not forget, we're also here to have fun!
Be'TLV also works with other community organizations to help create programming outside of club events. These events promote support for our local communities, advocacy and education. Contact us for information as to how you can get more involved in community programs.
