Join Meka Rae and Renair as we discuss Labels and Roles in the LGBT Community. Do you dress tomboyish but consider yourself "feminine" but people tend to call you a "stud", "butch", "aggressive," and/or "soft stud?" Are you feminine but people assume you are heterosexual, bisexual, or you are a pillow princess? Are you heterosexual but people think you are a lesbian just by the way you dress?
Do labels play a huge part in how you are treated in a relationship? Are you expected to be the "man" of the house just because you dress more masculine? Are you feminine and expected to clean, cook, carry the baby, etc?
We will discuss all of the above and more when you join us on Monday, September the 8th at 10pm Eastern
We look forward to hearing your thoughts

Last month we discussed labels in the LGBT community. The conversation was so full that we knew had to continue the conversation with a part 2. Recently, Raven Simone was featured on Oprah's Where are they Now.
This is her take on labels"
"I don't want to be labeled 'gay,'" Raven says. "I want to be labeled 'a human who loves humans.'"
In fact, Raven tells Oprah that she rejects the notion of labels completely in all areas of her life. "I'm tired of being labeled," she says. "I'm an American. I'm not an African-American; I'm an American."
The link to portions of the episode and the write up is included below.
How do you feel about that label gay, lesbian, stud, femme, pillow princess, etc? Do those labels define who you are as a human being? Are they acceptable in society? Do they affect your sex life or your relatioships? Lets talk about it!

Stereotypes about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people are conventional, formulaic generalizations, opinions, or images about persons based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. Stereotypes and homophobia are a learned outlook, i.e. from parents, teachers, peers, or the mass media, or a lack of firsthand familiarity, may tend to lead to more reliance on learned stereotypes.We will discuss these stereotypes and myths. Please join us to share your thoughts.
This week, Arizona lawmakers passed the anti-gay bill. In June Russia's president passed a law prohibiting the promotion of any non-traditional sexual relationships. And Nigeria recently passed a bill constituting same sex relationships illegal, with penalties of up to 14 years in prison. In an era of constant progression, the political efforts related to alternative sexual relationships become more stagnant, and in some cases seem to worsen. Is the world at war with the LGBT community? Do you believe these political restrictions are necessary to preserve marriage? Join us as we discuss "Sex Politics: The Worldwide War on the LGBT community" with James Felton Keith (twitter: @JFKii) , board member of the Detroit Regional LGBT Chamber of Commerce & LGBT advocate.
