A few weeks ago, Channel 4 asked me to participate in their 4Thought programme on being LGBT and Jewish (I’d previously sourced them a friend for a different theme) to coincide with London Pride. I agreed, filmed it, and thought nothing more of it other than “ZOMG, I’m going to be on telly! And no-one watches telly anymore, so I don’t have to tell anyone if they make me look bad”. As it turned out, they took three hours of insightful, thought-out analysis on Pride, LGBT, Judaism, and our society, and produced a minute and a half of TV that barely mentioned Judaism at all and said not much more about anything else. Maybe I wasn’t soundbiteable enough.
