“MARRY ME HOWEVER”— Religion, LGBT and Marriage in Israel


Religion, LGBT and Marriage

Amos Lassen

A new documentary from Israel looks at men and women from the LGBT community who for religious reasons choose to marry contrary to their tendency, to obey the laws of the Torah, and to be accepted into the religious society and families they grew up in. Sometimes they shared their sexuality and sometimes hide it. They deal with the internal conflict with religion and religious laws, with the family and the religious community, with exposure to society and children, and with the search for a partner. The characters go through a journey of self-acceptance, and engage in activities designed to change consciousness in the religious environment. Divorced gay couples, as well as rabbis and psychologists, seek solutions to unresolved conflict.
