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.
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?

Yesterday's comments on the Michelle Kosilek case covered the basics. Today, the guest is Jennifer Levi, director of the Transgender Rights Project of Gay & esbian Advopcaes & Defenders. She was incredulous about the majority decision denying reassignment surgery.
We'll cover the implications not only for Kosilek but also for current or future incarcerated transgender inmates in Massachusetts. Levi may also give us some perspective on the next action, as in whether the case might move to the Supreme Court.

On February 19, 2015 Orr was arrested by the Oconee County Sheriff's Office. Public Information Officer Jimmy Watt reported, "The Sheriff's Office began its investigation after an officer spoke with the victim on February 5th. The victim revealed to the officer that he had unprotected sex with Orr on two occasions, December 11th and December 15th of 2014, at the Fairfield Road address.

A new and better America is within each American. Not everyone wants or feel there is a need for a new and better America. We have already everything needed for a new and better America. Usually what we seek has missing elements and we have to wait for money or opportunity. With the massive jobless people today we have people power. With soaring stock markets, thanks to consumers, businesses have funds to donate. With the education and skill level of Americans today, we can tackle any series of ideas with success. With all that we have, our only need is within each of us. Desire. With a desire for a new and better America, we can see it become reality. Call on Politicians, Activist, Organizations, Non-profits and individuals to collaborate efforts for America's successes. Together and only together can all America will bask in full employment, raised wages and keep ACA.
