If you are struggling with your gender identity you are probably concerned that somebody is going to judge you. You may even be concerned about losing your job, your friends even your family. That is a very lonely place to be. For those struggling with LGBTq lifestyles, the fact that you feel so natural about who you are attracted to and yet it doesn't seem like those you love the most will understand is confusing. Where can you go to talk about your concerns and ask the question, " Am I 'normal?' ". That is what this show is for. I have been a Catholic, a born again Christian and studied Eastern religion as well. Is there a place for you to fit in? 

What can we do together to empower you? Honest open communication without shame will bring freedom from fear the of rejection. As we talk openly, I hope you will see yourself as the amazing creature you were intended to be.  Please call in to my show Tuesdays at 12PM at (347) 850-1865 or anytime at 510-882-0962. You can talk honestly and openly.

Homosexuality, like heterosexuality, is an orientation, defined by attraction, the object of affection, where and how one sees beauty, whom one turns to for support, where one finds joy and lifelong fulfillment and growth.

To call it a “choice” is to trivialize one of life’s deepest and most complex – and enriching – facets, as well as to denigrate the person under discussion. (From http://edmondsbeacon.villagesoup.com/)

“While the nation has undergone incredible social and legal change over the last decade, we still live in a nation with different beliefs about sexuality,” the letter from the faith leaders read. “We must find a way to respect diversity of opinion.” (http://rhrealitycheck.org/)
