    Transgender Realities

    in LGBT

    Transgender men and women of color are part of our collective narrative as a people. They are here and have a story to tell. Their stories are just like the rest of ours…filled with moments of love, hate, triumph, defeat, joy, struggle, peace and doubt. We fear what we don’t understand and we don’t understand by choice. Katrina Goodlett, host of the Kitty Bella Show and co-founder of the Trans Women of Color Collective (TWOCC) is our guest. She will enlighten us on some of the realities of the transgender community. Join us for the discussion and DON’T BITE YOUR TONGUE!!! Call in at 646-716-5470.

    Transgender Conversations...

    in LGBT

    Join me July 30, 2014 @ 8pm EST as we have Transgender Coversations an open conversation about the ongoing issues, life and love in the community and how all this revolves around our panelists and maybe, just maybe you. Joining me will be Louis Mitchell, Reverend  Eunice “Yunus” Coldman and Jack Ori. 


    Louis serves as the Engagement Coordinator for the TransFaith and as the Minister of Family and Congregational Life for South Congregational Church in Springfield.  He is founding member of the Trans People of Color Coalition, a member of the National Black Justice Coalition’s Leadership Advisory Council, a member of The Fellowship of Affirming Ministries’ Trans-Saints.

He is the CEO of Soulful Touch Ceremonies which provides ceremonial services throughout the New York tri-state area and Long Island. Having come from an Evangelical background, in 2010 he began seeking a path that included multiple spiritual walks of life and finally became an Interfaith Minister for the sole purpose of bringing life and divine love to those who seek his counsel and services.


    Jack Ori  likes to say that he took the “long way around” to the life he was meant to live.

    Who Decides When a Life Matters? Transgender Lives DO MATTER

    in LGBT

    February is supposed to be the month of love and romance. The year is 2015 and in January and February the lives of Trans Woman have not matter because 6 have already been killed. There is no national or local uproar for justice for the families, friends or the victims. There are no marches scheduled through social media with expecting crowds of 1000 or more expressing outrage. There are however organizations that are raising theirs voices and hoping you join them as this is a trend that MUST STOP NOW. Joining co-host Ina, Michelle and Terry Wednesday night, February 25th will be Monica Roberts, aka the TransGriot, is a native Houstonian and a trailblazing award winning trans community leader. She has lobbied since 1998 for trans human rights protections at the federal, state and local levels in Kentucky and Texas.  January 2006 she founded the award winning blog TransGriot. We will talk about why the deaths of 6 transgender women have had little mainstream media attention, no community leadership out cry, nothing. New Orleans LGBT youth of color activist group, The BreakOUT stated in the Feb 10th news story, "The silence and lack of action from media on behalf of the Black transgender community sends a strong message that Black Trans Lives, in fact, do not matter."  At last count 5 black transgender women and 1 Latina transgender woman have lost their lives. Where are the black and latina leaders that scream when a black or latina man or woman are killed for no reason? When does a human life not matter and who determines that?
