Queer Moms Nite Out!

Hosted by

Young Adults

Is your New Year's Resolution to get out more? Meet new people? Shake up your usual date night?

Calling all queer moms for a night of snacking, drinking, wisdom from a queer jewish parent, and semi-structured socializing. Organized by MJM microgrant recipient Talia Ralph, the Museum of Jewish Montreal is hosting a night for queer moms of all stripes to let their hair down, skip the small talk, and make a new friend (or four). 

On the eve of Tu-Bishvat, come plant some seedlings of a new community where we can be ourselves, together. Joined by special guest Rabbi Dini Lewittes, attendees will be invited to listen and share their experiences on being a queer parent, whatever that means to you. We'll talk about family, relationships, and perhaps get to know each other a little bit better.

Doors will open at 7:30pm with the event beginning at 8:00pm. Complimentary refreshments will be provided. Our bar (payable by card only) will be open with alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage options.

Capacity is limited, so register early to avoid disappointment. Pre-registration is required for all who wish to attend. We are not accepting walk-ins.


Talia is a lawyer, writer, artist and mom from Montreal interested in building supportive communities rooted in shared interests and experiences. 

Before becoming a food lawyer for the Department of Justice, Talia was a journalist and editor who covered international politics, food culture, and policy for publications like VICE, Edible Brooklyn, Punch, and Eater. She has also participated in and facilitated various community support groups about financial justice, chronic pain, diversity and inclusion, and mental health. When she isn’t working or mom-ing, she paints weird shapes (@tal.makes.art) and writes about queer parenthood at www.yourqueermom.substack.com

Talia has an honours’ degree in journalism from Emerson College (2011); an M.A. in food systems from NYU (2015); and a dual degree in civil and common law from McGill’s Faculty of Law (2019). She is a proud queer mom to a spotted rescue dog and incredible 2-year-old human, and wife to Sam. They all live in Montreal West, and would love to have you over.

This event is a part of the Museum of Jewish Montreal’s Microgrant Program for Creative or Cultural Exploration, which is funded by the Federation CJA'S Working Together Grant and the Betty Averbach Foundation.
