SORT BY Relevancy
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.
HERE WE TALK CANDIDLY ABOUT TRANSGENDER, TRANSEXUAL. IS IT RIGHT, IS IT WRONG? WHAT MAKES A PERSON WALK THAT PATH?
Hey there Tea Sippers!! Today edition will take us on a journey through some muck and mire as we deal with a populace this is one of the subcultures of a subculture. Often times never understood, the transgender community has been the brunt of many jokes, violent attacks, insults, dehumanizing behaviors, ostracizing actions, disenfranchising endeavors, and ridiculous ridicule that has kept this community on the defensive and under tons of scrutinty preventing it from gaining the necessary equity required to been seen and accepted within mainstream society.
Here in the ATL, what our transgender community is facing represents the common problems that the T-Community is being challenged with nationwide. Our guests, President Barack Obama Administration appointed Champion of Courage, Ms. Dee Dee Chamblee, Executive Director and founder of LaGender, Inc and Mr. Juan Evans, of SNaP Co (Solutions Not Punishment Coalition) will be shedding light on the plight of the Transgender Movement going on in Atlanta and across the country.
This will be a nurturing hot pot of tea, darlings, so make sure you have plenty of crumpets and come ready to learn...and learn this thing WELL.....
The focus of Transgender Thursdays is to provide hope, education, awareness, and advocacy for our transgender sisters, brothers, and their supporters. While the primary focus of Transgender Thursday is on increasing awareness of and improving advocacy for the transgender community, these shows will also tackle topics that transcend sexual orientation and gender.
Tonight, The Strong Stance with Eli tackles the topic of Privilege In All Its (Trans)Formations. What does privilege look like as it relates to gender, race, and even privilege within the transcommunity?
The Strong Stance-- things that “we don’t talk about in polite public society”.
On Last week's show, "Do Best Friends Make Good Lovers", the crew ended up getting into an ongoing debate about how to address a transgender. We never managed to get on the same page and almost completely went off of the actual show topic. We eventually converted back to show topic but after engaging in such an intense debate, we realized there was unfinished business and that we'd need an entire show to debate about this topic. Well tonight the debate continues.

Over the summer, you poured your heart and soul into your favorite games. You made it up to level 99 in that RPG and you managed to take down the hardest Raid Boss in your go-to MMO. But, now, you have to put them away and get back to hitting the books for another, arduous school year ... or do you?
This week, the GCR crew will put in the class hours for you and discuss our favorite school-themed video, card, and board games! But, that's not all -- we'll provide some extra credit, discussing the inner workings of gaming at school! Lastly, Scott will regale us with another one of his Impromptu Game Seminars! So, tune in and don't miss out!
Tonight we are celebrating the "birth" of our newest show on the Back2Us Radio Network--Transgender Thursdays.
The vision of our Transgender Thursday show is to provide a voice for but also support to our transgender brothers, sisters, their families, and significant others.
According to the National Center for Transgender Equality, "Numerous studies have shown that transgender people face disproportionate amounts of discrimination in all areas of life, especially in employment and health care."
Tye West and Eli Strong will talk one on one tonight with a diverse panel of guest as they reflect on their workplace transition experiences.
Finding the right school supplies, especially if your child's teachers have given you lists of must-haves, can leave you racing from one office-supply megamart to the next and battling other parents for the last spiral-bound notebook. We'll talk about school supplies we like and hate, and how schools could make this whole thing easier.
