Tonight’s guest is Dustin Fisher, who has written a book called Daddy Issues. The book is a funny, anecdotal account of the first year of Dustin's life with his new born daughter, Mabel. It's not necessarily about how to raise a child as much as it is about how a young, first-time father manages himself amidst all the pitfalls and road bumps anyone might face when trying to learn how to be a parent. Dustin is an author, a stand-up comedian, a story-teller, and runs his own blog that is all about being a stay-at-home father. His work has been published in the likes of the Huffington Post, the Good Men Project, and Baltimore Style magazine. According to Dustin, the minute his wife told him she was pregnant he made the scary decision to quit his job. So, in addition to the above mentioned past-times, Dustin is first and foremost the father of a healthy 2 year old daughter. Visit Dustin’s blog at http://daddyneedsanap.com/, where you can read his weekly updates and find links to all his upcoming events.

An exploration of what it means to be a kid; both the best and worst parts and what happens to that world when you inevitably have to grow up.

Reading from the Pride South Florida program:
The Pride Festival commemorates the Stonewall riots that occured in New York City in June 1969 which many credit with having launched the national movement for LGBT rights.
Recently released U.S. Census data revealed that Fort Lauderdale is the city with the highest concentration of same-sex couples households in the nation; and the greater Fort Lauderdale area annually welcomes more than 1.3 million LGBT visitors.
Our First guest Norm Kent, Publisher of South Florida Gay News (SFGN) was a successful attorney and advocate for many years defending gay men who were falsely accused of breaking Florida 's lewd and lascivious laws.
