SORT BY Relevancy
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.
Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) is an annual observance on November 20 that honors the memory of those whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence. TDOR was started by transgender advocate Gwendolyn Ann Smith as a vigil to honor the memory of Rita Hester, a transgender woman who was killed in 1998. The vigil commemorated all the transgender people lost to violence that year and began an important memorial that has become the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance. This year over 200 names will be read at TDOR services across the country. Joining CAN WE TALK FRO REAL co-hosts Ina, Michelle and Terry Boi will be Transgender activists Monica Roberts (The Trans Grio) and Michelle Fox-Phillips (Gender Identity Network Alliance).They will talk about commemorative ceremonies and the continued fight for a fully inclusive ENDA (Employment Non Discrimination Act) nationally and the fight at the state level in Michigan for its transgender community.

Award-winning Model and actress
One of the most beautiful and talented actresses in the world, Tracey Birdsall (FAMILY TIES, DAWN OF THE CRESCENT MOON, LOVING) is doing press this month.
Birdsall, known for both her modeling work and for playing Amy Sanders on the classic soap LOVING, has become a major force in independent film. She walked away with the Maverick award in 2014 for her performance in the new thriller DAWN OF THE CRESCENT MOON.
A model during her Malibu teen years, Birdsall was one of only 10 finalists nationwide to make it into the prestigious Wilhelmina “40+” modeling/runaway competition in recent times. “I grew up modeling and doing print work,” Birdsall-Smith said. “Then you hit your mid-to-late twenties and you think your career is over.”
As a teen, she won the Miss Teeny Bikini title and appeared in commercials for Sunkist and Coors Light, while performing in plays in the meantime.
Birdsall is available to talk about her long career in front of the camera – making the transition from modeling to acting, working on classics like Family Ties with Michael J.Fox, and some of her new films, including Dawn of the Crescent Moon, the family comedy The Grounded, and the upcoming science-fiction film Death Machine, in which she voices the role of a HAL-like computer.

Tonight Pop Art Painter Jamie Roxx (www.JamieRoxx.us) welcomes Indie-Electronic Singer Deja-Mae to the show.
Free Mp3 Single Download via Soundcloud:
Deja was practically born to be a performer. The daughter of Norman Howell, a well-established stunt man/coordinator/director and stunt double for Kevin Costner, Deja traveled from location to location growing up, so it’s no wonder that she thinks of a movie set as “home.” As a little girl, Deja fell in love with the idea of performing. It would be the film “Dances with Wolves” where Deja would get her first taste of performing. She continued to participate in the ‘family business’ throughout her adolescence, but soon realized that stunts were not enough, as the life of an actress brought conflicted emotions. Having grown up on movie sets, she understands the life of an actor can be isolating, unfulfilling and unpredictable at times. With a longing to touch people’s lives through performing, it makes sense that Deja has branched out into other areas of creativity, such as music.
Deja has made sure to keep music a large part of her life, which earned a residency at Hollywood’s Bar Lubitsch. Deja not only sings, but she also plays acoustic guitar and piano.
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.
Reverend Eunice “Yunus” Coldman is an ordained Interfaith Minister and licensed NYC Wedding Officiant. 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. Born and raised as the girl he was not, he struggled with anger, depression and social difficulties that interfered with his ability to use his intelligence for anything productive. It wasn’t until he began gender transition in his early 30s that he began living up to his potential. Today, Jack is pursuing his Masters in mental health counseling at the New School in New York City while earning a living as a freelance writer and life coach for young adults.
