This past weekend I was the keynote speaker at Lavender Graduation at The University of Alabama and I was reminded of how different DC and Alabama can be with regard to queer and trans* rights. We often discuss issues on The Strong Stance and statistics on how those issues affect trans* people. Tonight we are going to take a step back and look at how these issues have affected one person in particular.
The featured guest tonight is Evan Higginbotham -- a transgender gay male, from Tuscaloosa Alabama. He is a junior at the University of Alabama, studying psychology, with a minor in addictive disorders and recovery. He is the 2014 recipient of Elliott Jackson Jones memorial scholarship for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Activism on the University of Alabama campus. He is also on scholarship and an active member of the Collegiate Recovery Community at the Capstone. He has helped to start a Trans* Support Group on campus. Evan actively pursues opportunities to stand up and speak out about the Transgender community. He shared a motivational poem at Trans* Remembrance Day entitled "I Am Me."

You are absolutely in love! She or he is darling, super attractive and your mind is made up! The sex is good, he/she is responsible, stable, financially able and its the person of your dreams...and then one day he or she says to you...honey I need to talk to you, ya see things were going so well and I fell in love with you and I just could not bring myself to bring it up....I was born a man/woman!
You have been in hetrosexual relationships ONLY and nothing about you has ever pondered the idea of pursuing a gay relationship. Living in Atlanta and many areas of the world today we see gay couples and more and more personally know transgender people. Does this make you gay now that the truth is known? Dont miss my next show!
Tommy Dakota discusses the possibilities of co-host Frank Jackman's sudden disappearance. Tommy theorizes that Frank has finally decided to 'come out' by 'going in' for the big 'O'. Ever since he was a young, young man, Frank had yearned to be a young, young woman. Recently, at the not so tender age of 66 Frank decided to 'take the knife' and plunge genital long into a 'sex change'. "I've wanted to do this for ages and 66 seems like the perfect time for a sex change. Just look how it writes itself: six six sex. It's time", stammered Frank.
And so Dakota and I try to unravel this mystery and explore the nuances and ramifications of Frank's or should we say 'Francine's' intrepid trip down transgender highway.

It's Transgender Thursday with Tye and Mike.
Tonight, in respect to the recent release of the #Trans100 List, we will discuss the acknowledgement and recognition of trans* individuals and if there is space for gender non-conforming individuals to receive accolades in the mainstream. We will interview Jen Richards, of We Happy Trans and the Trans 100.
Jen Richards lives in the Andersonville neighborhood of Chicago and is quite happily in an asymptotic relationship to radical authenticity and in a permanent state of aporia. Jen is unabashedly proud to be a graduate of Shimer College, longtime member of the Theosophical Society in America, and an Outward Bound alum, has published articles, led workshops and presented talks on a variety of topics across the country, and relishes her work in the arts as the Managing Director of eighth blackbird and President of New Music Chicago. She humbly requests your latitude as she figures out what the hell she is doing, and remains genuinely open to feedback. She earnestly loves truth, beauty and goodness. She also loves you, madly.

I will chat with Pastor Dominique Henderson about what it was like growing up Transgender and being Transgender in the Church.
***I'VE CHANGED THE TIME OF THE SHOW IN AN EFFORT TO ALLOW ALL OF OUR LISTENERS IN THE VARIOUS TIME ZONES TO PARTAKE IN THIS EXCITING INTERVIEW .***
Have you ever been in a place where you "knew" you were supposed to be but you were treated like you didn't "belong?"
All to often members of churches place "judgement" on people and run them off from the church.
When it comes to sexuality and gender identification issues, some churches won't even talk about it! Well, we are gonna talk about it on the Live, Love, Laugh Talk show this Sunday, April 13th @ 6:0PM EST.
I encourage you to set your clocks and get your questions ready. Bishop Dominique Chanel Henderson and I will chat about gender identification and how she has been received by the church. We'll chat about how its made her "feel" in the past to have been ostracized by the very institution that claims to "love with the love of Christ".
Join me if you disagree with Transgender members attending church! Join me if you agree! Lets talk about it!
