    in LGBT

    Friday, June 26th, 2015 marks the day the United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS) completed what it started exactly three years to the day, June 26, 2013 when it announced a 5-4 Ruling in favor of the plaintiff Edith Windsor.  On the eve of multiple Pride celebrations, in a 5-4 decision, SCOTUS ruled once again in favor of the Petitioners James Obergefell (et. al.). Result:  marriage equality applies to all States of the United States of America.

    Is Trans the New Gay?

    in LGBT

    Kudos to the Transgender community for finally getting the positive spotlight they deserve. Celebrities Janet Mock, Laverne Cox, Chaz Bono and Caitlyn Jenner have truly helped kick down doors and ignite thought provoking conversations about another aspect of human sexuality. However, some of the media exposure seems a bit contrived and competitive as if networks are trying to 'one-up' the other by including a Trans topic or character in their programming.   


    Most recently rumors spread of the Real Housewives of Atlanta adding a Trans person to their cast. That being said, are Black gay men no longer the hot ticket on reality television. Has their season runs its course, and if so is it wise for the Trans community to try to fill that void? Will it devalue their struggle or take things to the next level.


    This is going to be a very exciting conversation with special guests Tyesse Jackson and Kentay Williams.

  • GAY CONVERSION THERAPY – REALLY?

    in Current Events

    GAY CONVERSION THERAPY – REALLY?


    In case you never heard of it, some people think they can convert gays, especially young people, into heterosexuals by using a type of “therapy.”  Really!  Of course this assumes that being gay is like a bad habit or mental illness that can be cured.  So what is this all about, does it help, does it hurt, and what are we doing about it?


    Oregon is one state among several that recently passed a law prohibiting conversion therapy, and other states are considering such bans.


    Samantha Ames is an attorney with the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) knows about conversion, what it’s supposed to do and what it really does. She’s served as a Policy Fellow in Washington, D.C. before moving to San Francisco to work as a staff attorney focusing on conversion therapy cases. She has testified on the harms of conversion therapy and the constitutionality of efforts to end it before both state and federal bodies, as well as at the United Nations Committee Against Torture in Geneva, Switzerland.


    Please join us to learn more about conversion and the hype around it.

    Will Arkansas anti-gay law legalize discrimination for all unprotected classes?

    in LGBT

    Monday, February 23rd, Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson allowed a new law to block future anti-discrimination laws (to go into effect 90 days after the legislative session ends later this summer).  While the premise of the new law known as SB 202 appears reasonable, in actuality this law allows legal discrimination for all non-protected classes.


    In this episode, we hear from three Arkansas residents.  Meet once again Scott Wyant, Founder of Straight Talk Arkansas, a website dedicated to Living liberally in the Mid-South.


    We'll also hear from Cathey Shoshone and Christina Harrison. Cathey is the Co-Chair and Christina is the Founder of Arkansans For Equality.  


    Christina Harrison was born and raised in Arkansas. She founded Arkansans for Equality in 2011. As an ally, she had become frustrated with the bigotry she came across towards our fellow Arkansans in the LGBTQ community and wanted to do something to help. She began a ballot initiative to repeal Amendment 83 soon after. Christina is a combat veteran in the Army National Guard, and has just recently returned from a tour in Afghanistan.


    Cathey Shoshone, also an ally, was born in Arkansas but has lived in several states around the South. She lives in Arkansas currently, She "liked" the Arkansan for Equality facebook page and volunteered to collect signatures for the ballot initiative.  The ballot initiative became obsolete when Cheryl Maples and Jack Wagoner won their case in Judge Piazza's courtroom legalizing same-sex marriage.  A federal case has also overthrown Amendment 83 to the Arkansas State Constitution. This decision has been stayed pending an appeal hearing.

    The Furiously Fabulous Super Gay Celebration

    in Politics

    Last Friday, [most of] the Supreme Court ruled on the right side of history. Since this country was founded, an entire group of people have been marginalized and disenfranchised. Loved ones were barred from visiting their ill partners in hospitals. Basic tax and social benefits were denied. Appeals fell on deaf ears or were held up in the bureaucracy indefinitely. Today, The Fruit is proud to say that America has taken a giant leap toward equality for all. Friday's 5-4 decision to legalize marriage in all states and territories, did not come without it's share of criticism, however. Opponents decried that five unelected lawyers do not have the authority to decide the will of the American people, while others slammed the Justices for rewriting the Constitution. Some Republican hopefuls [*cough* Huckabee *cough*] even said that the Supreme Court “cannot overrule [g]od” on gay marriage. Many have lambasted the Court's ruling with warnings of [g]od's wrath or the coming persecution of Christians. To those grumbling about marriage equality, The Forbidden Fruit crew has one thing to say to you. Love wins! You lose! Get over it! Call in and tell us how you celebrated the ruling or why you think it was a mistake.

  • Gay Marriage, Decades in the Making

    in Culture

    Author, columnist, & nationally syndicated, veteran radio talk show host, Chuck Morse has interviewed numbers of newsmakers on all sides of issues. He received the 2003 Communicator of the Year award & was named a "Heavy 100" Radio Talk Host. Chuck’s not afraid to take on controversy—gay marriage included. Whereas many acknowledge repellant effects of ongoing cultural transformation, few understood how it’s happened. Starting with the 1960s, the psychological process of Hegelian dialectic virtually destroyed traditional marriage and, consequently, shattered traditional Western culture. Join us as we review the history in light of the recent Supreme Court ruling.
