    in Culture

    Kim Pearson is Executive Director/Co-Founder of TransYouth Family Allies (TYFA) and National Board President of PFLAG-TNET. She first directed her energy into GLBT support, advocacy and education as the founder and president of her local PFLAG Chapter when the youngest of her three children came out as lesbian in 2005. Eighteen months later she found herself facilitating that same child's transition to living life as a young man.

    Fueled by her passion for ensuring respect and equal rights for children like hers she co-founded TYFA, the first and only national organization that supports, educates and advocates exclusively for gender variant and transgender children.

    Closet Talk: Director Megan Siler, And Then Came Lola

    in Culture

    Megan Siler, Co-Director of And Then came Lola, is an award-winning producer of both fiction and documentary films. She has an MFA from UCLA’s film program, an environmental studies degree from UC Berkeley and has taught screenwriting and film production for UC Berkeley Extension, Writers Boot Camp, and the Academy of Art College.

    Her most recent film, Toxic Bust: Chemicals and Breast Cancer, won the prestigious Cine Golden Eagle Award, and is being used by environmental health and breast cancer advocates around the country.

    Megan won the Emerging Talent Award from the Los Angeles Outfest for her feature length film The Midwife’s Tale, the UCLA Theater Arts Alumni Spotlight Award for her fictional short First Base, a short fiction film about first kisses, girlfriends and busting up. Megan also won a Dore Schary Award for her documentary, Single Mothers: Living On the Edge.

    The film, And then Came Lola, gives a not so subtle nod to the popular film, Run, Lola, Run and a sexy, lesbian romp. After an advertisement submitted to Facebook was rejected for being too "adult", the film skyrocketed to the hearts and minds of activists all over the world. The movement resulted in the ad being approved, as originally submitted, by Facebook.

    We'll be talking with Megan about the film, her work and the effect of discrimination on the films promotion.

    Closet Talk: Grassroots v. Gay, Inc.

    in Culture

    When Lt. Dan Choi chained himself to the White House fence, it was supposed to send the message that we will no longer tolerate government sanctioned discrimination targeting our gay service members. Simultaneously, activists in D.C. and California staged sit-ins at Nancy Pelosi's offices demanding the an inclusive ENDA be brought up for a vote.

    But rather than turning the focus to activism and pushing forward for gay rights, grassroots organizers and the big Gay, Inc. money machines went to war with each other. Some grassroots organizers burned their HRC stickers in protest. The message shifted to, "Down with the HRC."

    Join me with guests David Badash (blogger at The New Civil Rights Movement); author Kathy Belge (who authors the Lesbian Life section for About.com); and activists, Stuart Wilber and Chloe Noble with a recorded message from Genia Stevens (blogger and podcaster from SistersTalk.net).
