Paul is a visual artist and activist whose paintings draw inspiration from his own experiences as a young gay man. Since graduating college in 2002, his artwork has become a vehicle for exploring and understanding his own journey, as well as developing a dialogue with other members of the LGBTQ community. Influenced by his own struggles as he came to terms with his sexual identity, he seeks to challenge social constructs that exist around sexual orientation and gender roles.
His career has included exhibitions in galleries throughout the United States, as well as publication in numerous art journals and anthologies. His work is collected by individuals from around the globe. In his role as the Associate Art Director for Dreamspinner Press and their young adult imprint, Harmony Ink Press, he has created over two hundred and fifty novel cover illustrations. He teaches community art classes for Stonewall Columbus. He has volunteered with the Kaleidoscope Youth Center, encouraging LGBTQ teens to use art as a means of self-exploration and expression. He is a co-founder of the You Will Rise Project, an organization that empowers those who have experienced bullying to speak out creatively through the language, visual, and performing arts.
Paul shares his life with husband, Dennis Niekro. They were married in a group ceremony with twenty-four other LGBT couples in front of the U.S. Supreme Court building in June 2013. Together, they are committed to using their artistic talents to raise equality awareness.
Our guest for this Sunday evening is our own native Houstonian, "Deric Muhammad." Deric Muhammad is an accomplished Houston-based Activist/Organizer who addresses issues on behalf of the black community and other poor and under-served disenfranchised communities concerning Social Justice, Police Brutality, Racial Inequality, and Black Male Development.
Deric Muhammad believes that man is given power for one reason; "To Serve Others!" Deric Muhammad has been, for years, seen on local and national television stations addressing the tough issues faced by Black people in America. He says that he is unashamed of his love for Black people and thanks God every day for giving him the honor of serving his community.
In 2009 he independently produced and starred in a critically acclaimed documentary called “Raising Boys: Tips for Single Moms” that addresses the plight of Black women raising sons in the absence of a father. He recently launched a Houston-based Black Male Initiative called Project FORWARD that focuses on Stopping Inner-City Violence and creating Economic Development. His writings have been published in many newspapers and he has currently released his first self-published book A.S.A.P (A Street Activist Perspective).

Join me and my guest civil rights activist John Barnett as we have a candid conversation on the incident at Spring Valley High School South Carolina, where school resource officer Ben Fields openly assaulted a female student. The incident was caught on video and caught the attention of millions worldwide that eventually led to the termination of Ben Fields. John will be talking about the reaction on the ground in South Carolina, and why federal and local charges should have been filed. We will also be talking about how the family of the female student is doing and what the family hopes to achieve in the coming days.
All this and more on Sunday Nov 1, at 6:00pm on the Alysha Live! Radio Show.

Acivist David Delk, Move To Amend Activist
The People of the United States of America, reject the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Citizens United and other related cases, and move to amend our Constitution to firmly establish that money is not speech, and that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to constitutional rights.
"Political Dissent, Protest, and Repression - American Style” = = = = =
With Special Guest: David Scondras, political activist, former Boston City Councilman, and Executive Director of “Search For a Cure” a non-profit organization aimed at HIV Treatment Advocacy.
= = = = =
This week's topic will deal with the US Government’s war on protesters, dissenters and the growing repression of various political groups exercising their First Amendment rights by speaking out against the current and recent illegal wars (overt and covert) in the Middle East; those who have stood up to the US Government’s authoritarian laws such as the NDAA 2012/2013 and PATRIOT Act where habeas, privacy and due process legal protections have been eviscerated from our Constitution; those journalists and whistle-blowers (Chomsky, Hedges, Julian Assange, Bradley Manning and John Kiriakou) who have and continue to stand up against the massive counts of war crimes, treason and felonious wrong-doing by the Bush/Obama regimes; and also those who led the Occupy protests of 2011 and 2012 who recently discovered that they may have come close to being assassinated by an as yet unidentified group according to the FBI. America’s political dissenters are in increasingly in dangerous territory but still, they and we must push further ahead. We want our former democratic society back.
