    Each November on Transgender Day of Remembrance, we mourn the loss of our transgender sisters and brothers and pledge to end transphobia but sadly our work is not done. Although Janet Mock, Laverne Cox, and others are opening doors for the transgender community, too many of our brothers and sisters every day must face discrimination, violence and transphobia on the job and in their communities.

    Joining CAN WE TALK FOR REAL co-hosts Terry and Michelle on Wednesday August 12, 2015 is Carter Brown, founder and director of (BTMI) Black Transmen Inc. With its sister organization Black Transwomen Inc., they are leading the way in Black trans-advocacy. Through the Black Trans Advocacy Program, the Black Transmen Inc. & Black Transwomen Inc. and Black Trans International Ball/Pageantry System organizations have joined together in the only social justice program developed to collectively address inequities faced in the black Trans human experience.

    Besides sharing the history of BTMI and information about its annual conference in Dallas, TX each April, Carter will discuss the “hot button” items for Trans Advocacy, resources for the Trans Community and how the LGB community can be better allies to their Trans Brothers and Sisters.Carter Brown is also a loving husband, son, and brother. He was a stellar employee BUT HE WAS FIRED FOR BEING TRANSGENDER! He will share his personal account of being fired for being Trans and how his experience is being used to shed light on the continued challenges facing the LGBTQ community in the workplace

    Is Trans the New Gay?

    in LGBT

    Kudos to the Transgender community for finally getting the positive spotlight they deserve. Celebrities Janet Mock, Laverne Cox, Chaz Bono and Caitlyn Jenner have truly helped kick down doors and ignite thought provoking conversations about another aspect of human sexuality. However, some of the media exposure seems a bit contrived and competitive as if networks are trying to 'one-up' the other by including a Trans topic or character in their programming.   

    Most recently rumors spread of the Real Housewives of Atlanta adding a Trans person to their cast. That being said, are Black gay men no longer the hot ticket on reality television. Has their season runs its course, and if so is it wise for the Trans community to try to fill that void? Will it devalue their struggle or take things to the next level.

    This is going to be a very exciting conversation with special guests Tyesse Jackson and Kentay Williams.

    Why women & trans people are our only hope (Ep1 - That loving spirit) Podcast 15

    in Lifestyle

    I have always known from a very young age that the overwhelming amount of love, freedom, healing, intelligence, strength, courage, and spiritual liberation that I have been privileged to have is because of the women and trans people in my life. The number of men that have provided any of that to me are a mere handful, a tiny fraction of the women and trans people who have done the same for me. I have talked about this with many, many people – in my community, among my loved ones, my friends and acquaintances – men, women, and trans alike. They all come back, in an uncannily uniform way, with the same answer – love, freedom, healing, and goodness in general come from the women and trans people in their lives (exceptions notwithstanding), while most of the violence, abuse, and oppression come from the men (again, and I repeat, exceptions notwithstanding). Go ahead and examine your own life, and you’ll realize why women and trans people should never, ever, apologize for being the superior part of humanity. But let’s not settle on easy platitudes.  Here are a few reasons why women and trans people are superior to men and should never apologize for it (bearing in mind that this is not an exhaustive list by any means).

    ALERT: FINAL Vote on Trans Pacific Partnership

    in Politics

    The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) is still alive. 

    On Tuesday (06/23/2015), the Senate will hold a cloture vote to suspend further debate on giving Obama Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) or fast track ability to move the TPP forward.

    Ahead of tomorrow morning's fast-track vote, Sen. Jeff Sessions sent a letter to fellow Republicans on the dangers of this massive so-called trade compact. 

    If you're concerned with America's sovereignty, you should be concerned with this legislation.

    Sunday Stewart joins Ben Wiggins to continue their non-partisan, evidence-based approach to lowering the rate of gun deaths in the US. The duo also talk about board games they love and don't love, and ask each other why Americans are being such idiots about common core math. (The answer: because we Americans are a lazy nation and we don't like to learn stuff.) Ben also may or may not spring some discussion of Sunday's erstwhile athletic ability.

    Another trans woman has been murdered. Say her name: Keisha Jenkins, 22. Alabama law says its voters must have photo ID or a driver's license. Then Alabama closes 31 DMVs in predominantly Black neighborhoods. Some Alabama judges are refusing to issue any marriage licenses at all, to avoid issuing same-sex licenses. A 12 yr old black boy was suspended from school for staring at a white female classmate. An Ohio state court upheld the suspension. McGraw-Hill "apologizes" but refuses to recall and/or revise their current textbooks which depict the black people who were brought to the West by Trans Atlantic slave trade as merely "immigrant workers" and downplays the atrocities, indicating instead that the Irish and other Europeans were the truly enslaved. Southern Poverty Law Center declares the legal team representing Kim Davis to be a "hate group". Los Angeles tentatively agrees to a $2.85 million dollar settlement for the family of Vachel Howard who died in a chokehold in police custody in 2012.
