Shalom Life is proud to present our first Jewish LGBTQ series. We asked 10 public figures (ranging from comedians and actors to children’s book authors and musicians) to complete the following sentence:

I am Jewish. I am Gay. I am _________________

In the blank space, each participant has placed a personality trait, hobby, profession, descriptive adjective, or an interesting tidbit of information that describes an element of their being. Additionally, they have personally written a paragraph explaining their choice and how that choice defines them.

Religion and sexuality are integral to our self-identification, but they define us just as much as our interests, personality, career choices, philanthropic work, and talents.

Enjoy our series and share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Day 2- Michael Lucas

I am Jewish. I am Gay. I am an Israeli Patriot

It scares me that American Jews are in the dark and uneducated when it comes to the need to support Israel and sometimes I think that the majority do not even know the reason and purpose of the Jewish state’s creation. Unlike them, I feel that Israel is my country as much as America is. Maybe it’s the European in me, since we are more familiar with anti-Semitism, but Israel is key to my identity. I think of myself as pro-Israeli Jew first and gay second. If something were to happen to Israel and it was in immediate danger, I would be on the first flight to Tel Aviv.

Michael Lucas is the most mainstream, provocative, and controversial figure in gay adult entertainment. He has been called everything on his rise to be the owner of one of the most successful porn empires in the world: savvy, abrasive, ruthlessly honest, iron-fisted, intelligent, blunt, disciplined and determined. News magazine The Advocate said, “Michael Lucas has used the stardom porn gave him as a platform to speak out against drugs, unsafe sex, child exploitation, anti-Semitism, religious oppression of gays, and a host of other social problems.” With his unique character, activism, and distinction, Michael Lucas is at the forefront of his industry and beyond.
