Hello, everyone

I've been thinking of starting an anonymous blog for a while now. At first I thought it would be just one anonymous article on The Beacon, but then it turned out to be two. And yesterday, it became three. Once in a while, I think I'll continue writing for The Beacon, but I decided today that I'd like to have my own voice in the blogosphere. 

I am a female Orthodox Jew, and I am gay. There's not much more I can say about myself without giving away who I am. For reasons that I explained in my first article in The Beacon, and that I'll hopefully talk about at length here, I have to remain anonymous.

I’m going to keep this post short, simple, and to the point. The point being- why am I writing this blog? What am I trying to say or do?

The answer is a mixed bag. Yes, I am and will be making my voice heard here. I will, very often, be trying to make a point about something that catches my attention, and it won’t always necessarily be about homosexuality or Judaism. On the other hand, I won’t always be trying to make a statement. Sometimes I’ll just be writing out my thoughts, my feelings, my impressions- about anything and everything.

My plan is to blog every Sunday, so I hope to talk to you all in a few days :) 


  1. Awesome! Looking forward to reading!

  2. Just a word of warning - it took me about 10 seconds to figure out your name, so you might want to check the security settings, and even consult with someone else to ensure privacy.

  3. Thanks Elli!

    Bob, thanks for the heads up. Is the name you see "Elle G. Biti"? If so, that's a psudonym, so it's okay.

  4. Thank you for starting this blog. I was extremely moved by your articles on The Beacon. I experience alot of what you are with some caveats, I am male (in my 30's), married with a family.

    I write about it on my blog, frumgaymarried.blogspot.com

    I echoed alot of your similar sentiments about Elul in my blog. I emotionally want to bring up my "God issues" in my blog but for whatever reason (guilt, not wanting to be struck by lightning :-)), I haven't had the strength yet. Hopefully soon.

    Again, beautifully written and inspiring. Please keep on writing.

  5. Thank you so much for your kind words, Frum Gay and Married. I hope you find the strength to write on your blog about your God issues, so to speak, but even if you don't publish it, writing can be cathartic and also help you work your thoughts out, so I definitely recommend that.

    I will definitely be taking a look at your blog :)

  7. Elle: Congratulations on adding your voice to the growing chorus of Frum Extraordinary Elles, Proudly Honking Gees, Buzzing Bees, and Teetotalers.

    We look forward to hearing/reading more from you.
