The Jewish Community Speaker Series Presents
"A Nice Jewish Boy Talks Sex"
Decades before the words transgender and intersex became part of the mainstream lexicon, Dr. Milton Diamond's groundbreaking work formed the basis of research that continues to inform the study of human sexuality.
On Sunday, October 22 at 7:00 PM at Temple Emanu-El in Nu'uanu Professor Emeritus Dr. Milton Diamond sits down with Beth-Ann Kozlovich for a frank conversation about his work and its impact on the current understanding of human sexuality including transsexuality and intersexuality.
Dr. Diamond gained notoriety during the "John/Joan" case which involved David Reimer whose parents were told to raise him as a girl after a botched circumcision. This case is the subject of Anna Ziegler's play "Boy" which is currently being performed by The Actors Group.
For many years Dr Diamond has worked in support of civil unions and same sex marriage. In addition he is a long time member of the Oahu Jewish community. Dr. Diamond, or "Mickey" as many know him, was a founding member of Congregation Sof Ma'arav.

Inspired by a true story, Anna Ziegler's BOY explores the tricky terrain of finding love amidst the confusion of sexual identity, and the inextricable bond between a doctor and patient. In the 1960s, a well-intentioned doctor convinces the parents of a male infant to raise their son as a girl after a terrible accident. Two decades later, the repercussions of that choice continue to unfold.
"Ziegler...takes a delicate, restrained approach to her provocative subject matter...When, at the end, the character achieves a modicum of peace and a chance for happiness, you won't be thinking about gender. You'll be thinking about humanity." -Hollywood Reporter. "With uncommon empathy and startling insight, BOY gets to the heart of the conflict between medicine and science..." -TheatreMania.com. "Captivating...insightful, gut-wrenching, and beautiful...dazzlingly, deliciously alive from start to finish...expect it to be a long while before there's another play more rewarding, more moving, and more magical than Boy." -TalkinBroadway.com.
