JQYouth (or JQY) is a New York-based social and support group for LGBT people from Orthodox and traditional Jewish backgrounds. The group was founded in 2001 as an online list-serve, and began meeting in the Manhattan JCC in 2003. The organization is nondenominational and is accommodating of various views of homosexuality in Judaism. It is aimed primarily at those from 17 to 30-year of age.
JQY marched in the Celebrate Israel Parade of 2012, the first year openly LGBT groups were permitted to participate. Participation in pride parades has been a contentious issue in the Orthodox LGBT community.
