The Vanity Fair cover featuring Caitlyn Jenner certainly got some attention this week. The former Olympic decathlon champion completed her public transition by appearing in a gorgeous photo, shot by Annie Liebovitz. The reaction from the media and the public was quite positive.
Yet there were some hiccups along the way. Awareness of trans issues lags behind the understanding of sexual orientation in America - some people were simply uneducated about how to discuss Jenner's transition, while others were outright cruel.
Nick Adams from GLAAD joins us to talk about the reaction by the media to Jenner's story, some of the key pitfalls he wants to see the media avoid, and any mistakes Outsports has made along the way in attempts to cover the story with respect.
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.

On Saturday, May 11, at their 24 Annual Media Awards in San Francisco, Adam Lambert will receive the Davidson/Valentini Award from the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).
The award is presented to an out LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality for the LGBT community.
Anyone who knows anything about Adam knows that his heart, soul and efforts are always visibly with those in the LGBT community, especially LGBT youth, and the issues that affect their lives. So why would the Senior Publisher, Norm Kent, of a gay community newspaper write an opinion piece that says Adam doesn’t deserve this award?
Join us and our guests Editor-in-Chief Gideon Grudo and Associate Publisher Jason Parsley of the South Florida Gay News (SFGN), who are currently engaged in a difference of opinion with their Senior Publisher.
Jason is the man who interviewed Adam prior to his being given the Key to the City of Miami during the recent Florida Pride Festival. Gideon is the author of the SFGN editorial rebuttal to Mr. Kent.
Gideon and Jason, who strongly support GLAAD’s selection of Adam as the recipient of this year’s award, will talk with co-hosts Xena and Thea about how the issue arose and the aftermath of Jason’s interview, the Senior Publisher’s piece and Gideon’s rebuttal.
Join us for what promises to be a stimulating look into the world of gay journalism and its view of gay activism.
GLAAD has joined 20 other LGBT and human rights organizations in urging President Obama to address the persecution of LGBT people. The criminalization of homosexuality in Jamaica dates back to the 1864 Offences Against the Person Act, which calls for a punishment of up to 10 years of hard labor for those convicted of the “abominable crime of buggery.” In this episode, Nicholas is joined by Jamaican-born author and photographer and former US Navyman Max-Arthur Mantle, and Jamaican lawyer, LGBTI activist, and educator Maurice Tomlinson, who himself has received death threats.
Mantle's new novel BATTY BWOY comes out April 15th. Tomlinson is a Jamaican lawyer, LGBTI activist, and educator. For nearly twenty years, he has been working with a variety of local and international agencies to combat homophobia and HIV across the Caribbean. He is a Senior Policy Analyst with the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network and partners with various national and regional stakeholders to promote and protect the human rights of Caribbean LGBTI people.
