What do you learn at a JAKE talk?

JAKE is an Explorer- modern, digitally connected, a lifelong learner.  

A seeker of knowledge and continually asking questions about the brilliance of our community:

Perhaps he (or she) is looking for more purpose and intentionality in how he lives and incorporating spirituality into his daily practice.  He may even desire to grow in his capacity to love and discover what that fully means for himself.   

He is curious about ever evolving gay life.  

But he wants perspectives he can trust from the community leaders in their respective fields whom he can connect and engage with:

sex & relationships
technology + digital culture
the advancement of LGBTQ rights & equality
breakthroughs in health sciences
artistic expression (film + TV + music + internet)
pop culture

gender norms (masculinity + femininity)
philanthropy and giving back to community


To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.
— Oscar Wilde
