SORT BY Relevancy
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!

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.

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.
Let's Talk TUESDAY....DO THE GAY/LESBIAN HAVE THE RIGHT TO STOP PASTORS FROM THEIR SERMONS ON HOMOSEXUALITY...
Gay and Lesbians issues have been very controversial in polictics and the media lately. What do you think? Should they be allowed to adopt children? Should gay and lesbian couples be allowed to get married? Does being in this type of unconventional household have an effect on the child? Call in and join the discussion.
