On this episode we will discuss being African Ameirican and Gay and Lesbian.
While the America we live in today is more tolerant and accepting than decades and centuries past, we still have a long and arduous road ahead. Despite false claims that we live in a "post-racial" society, African Americans still face prejudice and systemic racism regularly. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people still combat discrimination and are denied access to basic protections. When you exist at these intersectional identities, simply trying to provide for yourself and your family becomes a battlefield.
At the National Black Justice Coalition, we have been fighting for over a decade to help LGBT African Americans live fully empowered, authentic lives. We know that Black LGBT people can struggle to find acceptance not only in mainstream America, but also within their own LGBT and African American communities. Now we have the figures to back up what we witness firsthand daily.
The question was raised on a FB post that I found quite interesting. Person states that he understood the whole gay/Lesbian thing but didn't understand how you claim to love the same sex but is attracted to someone who looks and dress like the opposite sex. Does clothes really define a gender? And is the world really that closeted to sexuality as a whole??? Let's talk about it y'all....we would love to hear from you!

Dedication: To the victims of sexual, child and domestic abuse.
Guest: Dawn Stefanowicz grew up in a homosexual household during the 60s and 70s in Toronto, exposed to many different people in GLBT (Gay, Lesbian, bisexual, Transsexual) subcultures, and explicit sexual practices. She was a witness at the Canadian Standing Senate Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs in 2004. Dawn addressed audiences in person in Canada, the United States, Ireland, Mexico, and Paraguay and world-wide through radio, television, and print interviews.
As an advocate for children and families, pertaining to marriage, parenting, sexuality, and education, She is a resource to family policy, legislative, medical, research, and scholastic organizations.

Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered (GLBT) populations are subject to marginalization and devaluation in our society. To a large extent, the GLBT population is underserved by social service and policy responses and for homosexual persons victimized by a same-sex intimate partner. Public Safety professionals should know and understand GLBT relationships fall within the category of intimate partnerships/domestic violence. As much as GLBT relationships constitute nontraditional families they now often have legal status and legal protection although that may vary a lot from one state to another. Three states allow same-sex marriage and nine states allow either civil unions or domestic abuse partnerships. Forty states have statutes banning gay marriage and 27 states have constitutional prohibitions. It is because of this questionable legal status of GLBT partnerships that remedies for abuse are in constant states of flux and why it is im,portant that Public Safety personnel reserach their state and stay abreast of changes in their own state laws.

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.

Ok they are people and they are here to stay.
So lets talk about it and get some understanding about the unknown.
GAYS AND LESBIANS
What we want to discuss is the possibility of Gays and Lesbians being born the way they are.
This will be an exploratory forum. We ask that everyone be respectful of each other but speak freely.
The Supreme Court is wading into the fight over same-sex marriage at a time when public opinion is shifting rapidly in its’ permission of gay and lesbian couples to wed. To date, 40 states don't allow it. Supporters of Proposition 8 say the court should respect the verdict of California voters who approved the ban in 2008 and let the fast-changing politics of gay marriage evolve on their own. Join our discussion. Open forum.
HERE WE WILL HAVE A VERY CANDID DISCUSSION ABOUT WHAT MAKES GAY PEOPLE GAY. ARE THEY BORN THAT WAY? DOES IT STEM FROM BIOLOGICAL OR GENETIC MEANS? IS IT A CHOICE? WHY ARE GAYS SO SENSITIVE AND DEFENSIVE REGARDING THE LIFESTYLE THAT THEY CHOOSE? WHY IS SOCIETY SO JUDGMENTAL AND INTOLERANT OF THE LIFESTYLE OF GAYS? IS THERE SOMETHING THAT CAN BE DONE TO BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN THE GAYS AND THE HATERS OF GAYS OR WILL WE FOREVER BE DIVIDED BY OUR OWN SELF LIMITING BELIEFS? WILL WE EVER BE ABLE TO GET PAST THE THOUGHTS AND IDEAS THAT PREVENT US FROM TRULY EVOLVING SPIRITUALLY OR IS IT OKAY TO FEEL WHAT WE WANT TO FEEL AND LIVE HOW WE WANT TO LIVE? VERY CANDID TALK. I MAY OPEN THE SHOW TO CALLERS BUT PLEASE BEAR IN MIND THAT THIS IS NOT A BASHING SESSION, NOR IS IT A DEBATE. WE WILL ALL BE RESPECTFUL OF EACH OTHER AT ALL TIMES OR YOU WILL BE DISCONNECTED FROM THE LINE. I WELCOME ALL COMMENTS AND QUESTIONS AS LONG AS WE REMAIN RESPECTFUL. AND ALSO NOTEWORTHY IS THE FACT THAT THIS IS MY SHOW AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE MATERIAL BEING PRESENTED OR THE WAY IN WHICH I PRESENT IT, YOU ARE FREE TO LOG OFF. IN FACT I'D RATHER YOU DID. OTHERWISE, BUCKLE UP AND GET READY FOR A RIDE INTO THE LAND OF THE GAYS, AND HEAR IT STRAIT FROM THEM ACCORDING TO THIER OWN EXPERIENCES. ONE LOVE TO ALL!!!
On Bill Martinez Live for today in the last half hour at 10:33 we will interview five ex gays/lesbians. Those who claim that one is "born that way" can try to tell that to Robin who was raped by a babysitter and who is outraged that states have banned reparative therapy. Chris Doyle, Jayson Graves and others will tell their stories.
Welcome to Bill Martinez Live, hosted by an unapologetic AMERICAN U.S. Marine of Mexican descent who knows why people come to America but demands that immigrants come through the front door and that the rule of law be respected. Bill Martinez Live waves just one flag and has no use for hyphenated hearts torn between the Stars and Stripes and some other foreign banner.
Republicans & Democrats have lost a grasp on life, liberty and pursuit of happiness for America. Bill Martinez Live helps us regain it. Listen in to the show to hear every facet of the issues but keep your eye on God and the exceptionalism to which he has urged on America and its people. Our nation is at a crossroads but remember your solemn birthright fellow Americans as "We the People". Our regular guests include former New York Lt. Governor Betsy McCaughey; Steve Evans the Movie Guy; Samantha Mills who features spectacularly touching stories from the internet; Kevin "Coach" Collins-a NY City retired Honor Legion cop with a doctorate in Public Administration and a post doctoral degree is BS detection and Jen Horn on cultural happenings!

Claiming sexuality is a person's choice; however, I must admit I did NOT realize that a person's sexual choice would leave me feeling puzzled and here's why...LISTEN IN!
