    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.

    Homophobia, Death Threats & Government Complicity: Jamaican LGBT's Under Attack!

    in Current Events

    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.
