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?
As trans* and gender queer people we often become so focused on our social, mental and physical transitions that they grow to be larger than life. So much so that we forget that a transition is just another word for a shift. A shift in thinking, a shift in geography, a shift in expectations, a shift in marital status or family size. They all affect us as human beings and they are yet another layer to our complex lives as trans*, gender queer, and queer people. And when we forget, it makes it that much easier for people outside our community to see us as just the sum of our surgeries.
Tonight's guest will be Nicholas Durand. Nicholas is 27 years old, and was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in early 2013. A gay trans man living in Virginia, he is now the facilitator of DCATS and is an advocate for both LGBTQ+ and disability rights.

Today Walt will share his story and offer insight about what it's like to be in the transgender world, as well as discuss some of the propaganda out there that is now radically promoting the transgender agenda, even to our children.
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.

2pmCST EVERY SUNDAY "The Anthony & BFLY Show"
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.
