The Rainbow Jews project

Rainbow Jews

Launched in October 2012, Rainbow Jews is a pioneering project that records and showcases Jewish lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) history from the 1950s to today. It captures the voices and experiences of Jewish LGBT people in the UK through oral histories and archive creation.

The diverse materials will be shared online, in booklets and educational resources and celebrated at the launch of the Rainbow Jews travelling exhibition during LGBT History Month in February 2014.

Our partner organisations include London Metropolitan Archives, LSE Hall Carpenter Archives, LGBT History Month/Schools Out, Keshet UK, JGLG, Leicester LGBT Centre and Rukus.

"Rainbow Jews provides an important source of Jewish history. I urge people to get involved and support this project in whichever way they can"

"I am honoured to support Rainbow Jews and to celebrate the huge positive contribution that Jewish people make to the LGBT community and to our wider society. Jewish and LGBT people share many parallels of oppression and of triumph over adversity. As victims of prejudice, it is important for us to stand together united against all hate."
