Gregg Drinkwater is a doctoral candidate in U.S. history and Jewish studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder. His research focuses on sexuality, gender, and Judaism in the modern United States. His dissertation explores the history of gay and lesbian synagogues in the 1970s and 1980s and how gay and lesbian Jews contributed to shifting the boundaries of normative sexual and gender roles within liberal American Judaism. Prior to his enrollment at the University of Colorado, Drinkwater worked for 10 years for two national Jewish organizations, Jewish Mosaic and Keshet, doing research, writing, training, and consulting in support of LGBTQ inclusion and social justice in the Jewish community. He is the co-editor of the book "Torah Queeries: Weekly Commentaries on the Hebrew Bible" (NYU Press, 2009).
