#MyRealTalkRadio 2nd Annual Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes Birthday Tribute.
Although she was a member of one of the most successful pop groups of all time, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes spent a good portion of the last years of her life very far from the limelight. In the late 1990s she traveled to the impoverished Central American country of Honduras for the first time, and soon made a second home for herself there. She was drawn to the country’s natural beauty, holistic healing, and most of all to its people. When she passed away there in 2002, she was in the process of bringing to fruition her dream of establishing a non-profit educational and medical center on some property she owned near the coastal cities of La Ceiba and Jutiapa. Today, the Lisa Lopes Foundation is poised to make Lisa’s dream a reality.

"Access Granted" with Tony Grant
Actor, writer, producer, and Grammy-nominated musician Tony Grant has become one of the most sought-after, multi-faceted talents in the entertainment industry today. In 2014, Grant can be seen starring as “Phillip” on the OWN Network and Tyler Perry’s original comedy series “Love Thy Neighbor.” The show follows a middle class family and their daily joys, struggles, triumphs, and fumbles. On the film front, Grant recently wrapped production on the independent drama THE LAST PUNCH opposite Keith David, David Banner, and Karon Joseph. Directed by Jesse Vaughan, written by Michael Soccio, and based on true events, THE LAST PUNCH tells the story of James Cornelius [played by Grant], an Atlanta hustler turned boxing promoter who used his street smarts to navigate the shark-infested waters of the 1980’s fight game. On the run from the F.B.I. Cornelius must find a way to make Muhammad Ali’s last fight, The Drama In Bahamas, a reality. Grant will also be returning to music in June 2014, with the release of his full-length album Access Granted through his label, TraFace Music Publishing. After eight years since his last album [Grant Life], Access Granted will showcase Grant’s internationally known powerhouse vocals, passionate lyrics, and original love songs that bring heart and soul back to R&B music.

Join your host Elliott Skaggs with special guest Oberyn Kunning on "Queer Spirits: Empowering the Tribe" on discussing body image issues in gay culture. Many gay men feel they are objectified and/or marginalized both in their gay culture experience. Issues of body take on varying multi-sectional issues of age, race, size, objectification, and even gender expression. We escape a heteronormative mold often to encounter the homonormative one. This episode we will discuss these issues and more as they relate to gay male body issues.
I am your Host Elliott Skaggs, here is some info on my background:
Elliott is a former activist, academic, and community organizer. He earned his BA degree at Appalachian State University and did his senior thesis on Gay Socialization covering issues ranging from objectification, internalized homophobia, and building models of gay solidarity. He is also a former president and founder of a LGBT student organization at Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College.
Joining us today is our guest Oberyn Kunning:
Oberyn Kunning is an activist working along multiple intersections of organizing, including communities of size/Fatness, queerness, feminism, anti-racism, anti-colonialism, anti-Capitalist, and disability. They are a witch, partner, father, teacher, and co-founder, director, producer, and performer at the new queer-occult studio Drewary Lodge.
Join Supernatural Girlz Patricia Baker & Patricia Kirkman as they find out how to awaken your third eye and possess cosmic vision. Can anyone do it? Is it safe? Usually, you perceive the world by using your five senses: sight, taste, smell, touch, and hearing. But there is a sixth sense, an inner eye that can open the gateway to subtler realms of existence. Developing this inner eye will enable you to view a previously invisible world of multiple dimensions, spiritual planes filled with light, and alternate realities of indescribable wonders. This eye of wisdom, knowledge, illumination, and intuition is aptly named the third eye.
