    The Final Word Podcast The Stonewall Riots REMEMBERED 2014

    in LGBT

    Given that Friday was the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, The Final Word Podcast is reairing its episode on such a pivotal moment in American history
     
    Since July generally hosts LBGTQ Pride events through the country, The Final Word Podcast will be addressing pivotal issues and moments throughout our shared history.
     
    The Stonewall Riots 1969
    The Stonewall riots were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations by members of the gay community against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn, in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City. They are widely considered to constitute the single most important event leading to the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for gay and lesbian rights in the United States.


    After the Stonewall riots, gays and lesbians in New York City faced gender, race, class, and generational obstacles to becoming a cohesive community. Within six months, two gay activist organizations were formed in New York, concentrating on confrontational tactics, and three newspapers were established to promote rights for gays and lesbians. Within a few years, gay rights organizations were founded across the U.S. and the world. On June 28, 1970, the first Gay Pride marches took place in Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York commemorating the anniversary of the riots. Similar marches were organized in other cities. Today, Gay Pride events are held annually throughout the country towards the end of June/beginning of July to mark the Stonewall riots.

    Greg Archer, journalist and author of "Grace Revealed" March 26th, 9PM EST

    in Books

    Seventy-five years after Joseph Stalin's reign of terror across Eastern Europe, entertainment journalist Greg Archer takes a step back from Hollywood and examines his Polish family's mind-bending odyssey of the 1940s. In the process, he exposes one of the most under-reported events of the 20th Century: Stalin's mass deportation of nearly two million Polish citizens to the Siberian gulags and the life-shattering events that followed. The book, Grace Revealed, takes you on that journey.


    But the author's quest takes a dramatic turn. As he walks an emotional tightrope between the past and the present, can a serendipitous global adventure become a saving grace, heal the ancestral soul and bring justice to his family and their forgotten Polish comrades?


    Greg Archer is an award-winning journalist, editor, cultural moderator and author. His journalism and man-on-the-street coverage of agents of change, arts, culture, travel and the entertainment industry appear regularly in The Huffington Post, San Francisco Examiner, Jetset Extra and on his popular YouTube portal. He has been a contributor to Oprah Magazine, The Advocate, VIA Magazine, Palm Springs Life, Bust, Prevention, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Monterey Herald and other publications.

    Brian Katcher, Author of "Almost Perfect" Stonewall Book Award Winner 2011

    in Books



    "A young adult novel about a transgender girl—told from the perspective of the straight boy who falls for her—“Almost Perfect” is exceptional. The writing is sensitive, haunting and revelatory,” said Stonewall Children’s and Young Adult Award committee chair Lisa Johnston.

    In “Almost Perfect,” Sage Hendricks is the new girl at Logan Witherspoon’s school. She is very tall, a bit awkward and unconventional in manner and appearance. Logan is immediately drawn to Sage’s intelligence and humor; they need each other’s friendship, but Sage’s life is a mystery. Sage reveals she was born a boy. Outraged, Logan begins to question his sexuality and cuts his ties with his friend, when she needs him most.

    This is Brian Katcher's second novel. His first, "Playing with Matches", was also met with acclaim as an important Young Adult novel.

    Brian Katcher was born in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1975. He attended the University of Missouri, Columbia, before dropping out of society and bumming around Mexico for three years. He’s worked as a fry cook, a market researcher, a welding machine operator, a telemarketer (only lasted one day), and a furniture mover. He lived on an Israeli military base one summer, and once smuggled food into Cuba. When he’s not writing, he works as a school librarian. He lives in central Missouri with his wife and daughter. He still hasn’t paid the parking ticket he got in West Virginia in 1997.

    Joe Dallin, author, comes to Stonewall Live! July 21 9PM EST

    Joe Dallin, author of Perfect: The Journey of a Gay Mormon comes to Stonewall Live! Thursday, July 21, 9PM EST
    At the age of thirteen Joe Dallin, was faced with an ominous fact: that he was gay. The inner battle between his religious and sexual identities raged for ten years, nearly driving him to suicide. However, one night he realized that the monumental effort he had put into becoming a straight, mainstream Mormon man was not only an exercise in futility, but simply the wrong path for him. Around the next corner, he found the peace and happiness that had always been so elusive.
     
    Dallin writes of his attempts to corral burgeoning same-sex feelings while listening to his grandfather's rants about homosexual "pigs" or reading the Mormon scriptures' condemnation of them. His father offered a more liberating stance on sex – that it was natural and should be enjoyed, as long as it remained within the bounds of heterosexuality.
    His radical dress code (from "preppy, pretty-boy fag" to the Mormon temple garments) and secret love of boys bled through into his adolescence, where college life stealing glances at towel-clad muscled boys in the common bathrooms
     
    Joseph Dallin was born into the heart of Mormonism, Provo, Utah, and grew up in neighboring Orem. After living as a faithful member of the church, which culminated in a two-year mission to Texas, he came out as a gay man in 1998 at the age of twenty-three.
    He holds a B.A. in Cultural Anthropology and currently resides in Honolulu, Hawaii.
    Perfect, with the exception of some name changes and minor alterations in chronology, is the true story of his journey.
