LGBTQ Jewish Hanukah!

A video compilation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) Jewish people wishing young LGBTQ Jews happy Hanukah!

This was an independent project in London, England but also includes lovely people from Boston, USA. We’re only the tiniest fraction of the diverse LGBTQ and Jewish people and communities out there in the world. This video aims to raise visibility of LGBTQ Jews, especially to young people, but it does not claim to be representative of anybody other then ourselves.

Term clarification:
*Transgender- a person who identifies their gender as different to the sex others considered them to be at birth.
*Queer- can include gay, lesbian, and bisexual people. It is often used to state “not-straight”. Some people find this word offensive, others have re-claimed this word as empowering for them.

Thanks so much to all the awesome people who contributed. You are great!

I hope you have a good Hanukah, wherever you are in the world, however you identify.

Shalom Aleikhem

    I am not religious at all but I find this video as a really sweet gesture towards us. Thank you and happy Hanukah or whatever celebration each of you celebrates 🙂
