Homosexuality is very hidden within Orthodox and Ultra-Orthodox Jewish communities; it`s a little secret that few people wish to face up to. There are other LGBT Jews on Stamford Hill, of course. One or two were well-known. Yet, the tendency of the community is to try to pretend that it isn`t happening. Men and women are still expected to marry at young ages, and produce large families, and anything outside of that proves problematic.

A very worthwhile film to watch about the trials and tribulations of observant gay Jews is "Trembling Before G*d", which premiered some 4 years ago, to a great deal of controversy.
