THE HUMAN AGENDA: Conversations about Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity with author Joe Wenke
Despite the progress in the movement toward marriage equality, the LGBTQI community continues to face difficult, and often heartbreaking, odds. Gay and lesbian youth are four times more likely than their peers to attempt suicide. Nearly half of transgender teens have contemplated suicide and a quarter has made an attempt, according to The Trevor Project. Adoption equality and second-parent rights are still blocked in many states, and legislators in Oklahoma and Alabama have tried to introduce laws that make it legal to discriminate against gays and lesbians. Perhaps most disturbing of all, homicide rates for transgender women account for 45 percent of all hate murders, according to GLAAD.
Joe Wenke thinks there is a better way. By opening up discussions about our shared humanity and experiences, Wenke is getting people to talk with, not at, each other and leaving the rancor and divisiveness behind, beginning with his book THE HUMAN AGENDA: Conversations about Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity. For this collection of frank conversations about growing up, coming out, finding your identity, family, marriage, parenting, careers and so much more.

For this show, I plan to talk about what is trending on Facebook and Twitter. If time, I will take in call, (if any) to talk about anything that's on their minds. I will also be talking about what has been happening with me and tell you more about me and this station. I just became a Trekkie, so I might be throwing in a bit of Star Trek reference. Forgive me if I can't spell anything in here correctly, this section of inputing alpha-numaric sentances does not have auto-correct.
So here is what will happen in order....
1: I will talk about me and about the station.
2: I will talk about trending topics on Facebook and Twitter (at the current time).
3: I will take in calls if anyone is listening.
4: I will give a thought of the evening
I hope you will enjoy listening to Gender Chat on Blog Talk Radio, and I hope to hear your views and ideas. Details are on the station/channel/profile page.

How we define ourselves, mother, father, coach, pastor, businessman, teacher...these self-identifying monikers can play a huge role in what we persue. Our focus, our passion, our time, our resources, our very personality can be shaped almost entirely by how we perceive our identity. Do you believe that God has planted with you a divine identity? A purpose that is supernatural and eternal? And if you do, are you operating in that identity? Do you even know what it is
“Gender expression” refers to the ways in which we each manifest masculinity or femininity. Each of us expresses a particular gender every day – by the way we style our hair, select our clothing, or even the way we stand. Our appearance, speech, behavior, movement, and other factors signal that we feel – and wish to be understood – as masculine or feminine, or as a man or a woman.
For some of us, our gender expression may not match our biological sex. We may or may not fit another's expectations of masculinity or femininity because of the way we look, act, or dress. Our guest knows firsthand the struggle of not feeling her assigned sex. Author Tracy James Jones, though born male, has been referred to as “she” throughout her life. She never fully embraced the male gender as her own because she always felt or related more to being viewed as female. At the age of fifteen, she made a tearful confession to God on the altar at her church—she finally embraced her true self because she believed that God loved her, too.

Universal Journeys Radio is about how:
Spirituality intersects with nearly every other aspect of our lives, even when we do not see it or realize it.
Creativity and expression are our connections to the spiritual energy many seek to understand and our identity is forged through this process. Universal Journeys seeks to help illuminate the different intersections between creativity, spirituality and identity in order to empower and enlighten.
the revolution of the mind continues...
Amazon recently declared that children's toys will no longer be separated by gender. No more trucks for boys or dolls for girls... Everyone plays with everything.
Which led us into a debate...
Are gender role assignments crucial to mental health and stability... Especially in communities of color?
Are gender "roles" even fair? Shouldn't everyone assume whatever "role" they must to ensure life liberty and happiness? Or are these "roles" the very glue that binds our society?
