    Caitlyn Jenner coverage gets some grades

    in LGBT

    This podcast is brought to you by AT&T. Mobilizing Your World.

    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

    in Spirituality

    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.
