We Are You: An Exploration of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Issues in Colorado's Jewish Community
The leaders of Colorado's Jewish communities have publicly cited the values of inclusion, respect and tolerance as important goals for the community. Yet Colorado's Jewish communal world has been relatively slow to meet the needs of LGBT Jews and their families. Although there are bright spots and examples of institutions pro-actively welcoming LGBT Jews, too many of Colorado's thousands of LGBT Jews and their families have not felt welcomed, recognized, or supported, and choose not to affiliate or participate in the organized Jewish community.
This study seeks to understand how LGBT Jews in Denver and Boulder experience the organized Jewish community in terms of being or becoming a place to express meaningful Jewish identity. Our evaluation examines what tactics are currently used or could be developed by Jewish organizations and professionals in the Denver/Boulder metro region to provide more opportunities for Jewish engagement, involvement, and participation of LGBT Jews and their families.
