Tonight's special guest is Jay Lore from Laurel. Maryland, child abuse survivor and author of the book "Sometimes You Lose, Sometimes You Learn: How I went to a party one night for twenty years and lived to tell about it." Jay is transgendered from woman to man, and agrees this was a part of his recovery, of "being comfortable living inside his own skin." That wasn't always the case. "I was 4 years old when it started, I don't know at what age the physicality stopped. I was 32 when I first spoke it out loud to someone." Because of the abuse, Jay turned to drugs early on. "I did my first drugs at age 11. LSD, to be exact. It escalated from there. In group my councilor used to get me to read my drug list because it was so extensive and there were things she'd never heard of. There were three suicide attempts. "I was a cutter. I loved the feel of the blade, the sting as it pierced my skin, the pain told me I was able to feel .. something. I lost my kids." Eventually Jay called an 800 drug line. That was in 1987, and Jay's been clean now for over 28 years. "I've been telling my story every chance I get," he says, "to anyone who will listen and some who don't want to hear it." He offers his book for free. Jay now lives with his oldest daughter and her family. He attends and serves at church faithfully. "It's about reaching that one someone that needs to hear my story as only I can tell it. To get that one to realize there is hope and love and light. And most importantly, that they need never walk alone again."

Rae Spoon is a transgendered musician and author who lives in Montreal. They have toured extensively over the past twelve years in Canada as well as internationally (Europe, the USA and Australia). Having started out as a country artist and later composed more experimental/electronic material, Rae has always kept songwriting at the forefront of their music.
I Can’t Keep All Of Our Secrets is Rae’s most recent release. A pop/electronic album about the complexity of grief, it focuses on a particular experience of loss—Rae wrote the album in the wake of a friend’s sudden death. With palpable emotion, the songs map the topography of loss and of attachment that extends beyond death. Musically, I Can’t Keep All Of Our Secrets is Rae’s most electronic album to date. Its heavily programmed production, analog synths and distorted electric guitars mark Rae’s musical progress from electronic experimentation to the establishment of their own style in the genre.
Rae’s first book, First Spring Grass Fire, was published by Arsenal Pulp Press in September 2012. The book, which honours the brief moments of hope for a world outside of the narrator’s evangelical family, is a collection of short stories heavily inspired by coming of age queer in Alberta. Through realizing they must escape where they are from, the book’s narrator begins a journey towards finding acceptance and a safe home.
Rae was long-listed for the Polaris Music Prize in 2008 (superioryouareinferior) as well as nominated for two CBC Radio 3 Bucky Awards in 2010. They won the CBC Galaxie Rising Stars award in 2004. Rae’s personal essay Femme Cowboy can be found in the 2012 Lambda Literary Award–nominated anthology Persistence.
In her powerful book, Bondage of Self, Kaitlin Sine Riordan writes, "Born breached, alcoholic, drug addicted and transgendered, the first steps out of my mother's womb was the beginning of a world ful of guilt, shame, anxiety, anger, fear and pride, all of which had to be overcome in order to live a life of serenity."
We collectively share our experience, strength and hope in the struggle, to grasp more fully as a worldwide community that, while some of us are safe in LGBTQ-friendly communities, most of us are still in great danger if we dare to simply be who we are.

Good morning. Today, on The Meter we cover the recent economic news that seems to contrast with the President's approval numbers. Is there economic recovery or continued stagnation? Also, Sgt.

President Obama and National Securoty Advisor Susan Rice said repeeatly that Bergdhal had served honorably. Does this exchange threaten national security? Governor Mike Pence (R) IN has signed a bill into law that protects religious freedom. Under the new law no one can be forced to do business if it violates their religious principles. Protests and boycotts are brewing claiming the law discriminates against gay and transgendered citizens.

On January 22 of this year, Bob Estep was pulled over in a routine traffic stop in Christian County. That's about as far as we go with any consistency between what police say happened and what Estep says happened. New releases from the police department of Sparta this week widen the chasm even more between the reports of how the incident really went down. We'll continue our coverage tonight.
Somehow the Springfield newspaper managed to squeeze the Estep story in amongst the pages crowded with stories of how the "haters" want to encourage discrimination, who the "good Christians" and "bad Christians" are, and their hollow cries to expand the inequalities extended to special classes of people. We'll discuss the upcoming Springfield vote to recall the expansion of special privelege to gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered people.
