About this project

"Choosing to be Chosen" is a film which delves into the thoughts of those who are converts to Judaism and identify as all segments of the LGBTQ communities. The participants of this project come from across the boundaries of familial, socioeconomic, ethnic and racial backgrounds to give insight into the process of conversion. "Choosing to be Chosen" takes a look into the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, transgender, genderqueer and gendergifted Jews by Choice to find the intersection between Jewish and queer identity.
