Following the dissolution of Kulanu Toronto in 2018, Miles Nadal JCC assumed responsibility for providing Jewish LGBTQ+ programming in midtown and downtown Toronto. This took the form of LGBTQ+ at the J, which, according to its mission statement, "strives to be the heart of Toronto's LGBTQ+ Jewish community, providing queer Jews opportunities to gather, celebrate and thrive." In 2019, the group participated in Toronto's annual Pride Parade.
