    The Strong Stance with Eli Strong

    in LGBT

    Access to health care has lately been a hotly debated topic, both inside and outside of the transgender and genderqueer community. What’s covered, what’s not, who is covered and who is not. It’s a discussion that cuts across class, race, sex, and gender identity. Now, with the Affordable Care Act, there is even more debate and discussion. A good number of these decisions particularly affect the trans* community. Tonight,  Danielle Askini - Policy Director at Basic Rights Oregon, will join us to discuss the current climate of health care as it relates to the trans* and queer community and the access and/or hurdles to competent and comprehensive care.

    Danielle joined Basic Rights Oregon from Seattle, Washington where she was the founding executive director of Gender Justice League – a Trans* Activist Collective where she worked to repeal Trans Health Insurance exclusions in Washington, launch Trans* Pride Seattle – the largest Trans* event in the Pacific Northwest, and mobilizing to include Trans people in HIV Prevention and testing efforts in Washington State.

    Want To Come Out Of The Closet? Embrace Yourself And Be Proud

    in LGBT

    Coming out isn’t just something you do once and you’re over with it. It’s something that is always with you, that stays with you over time. People in your life change and you have to keep telling them who you are. You might not like it, but you have to do it. The need to come out never stops, no matter through what method you use to do so. Maybe you write a blog, you’re active within the LGBT community, you express yourself through an art form like poetry or painting, and so on. Look at it this way, if you stop you’re basically putting yourself back in the closet. Sure, some people know, but if you move to a new city, get a new job, or just meet a bunch of different people, your sexuality disappears if you don’t share it. That makes it easy to get back into the habit of hiding who you are and negates all the hard work you did to come out in the first place. NEVER be ashamed of sharing who you are, LOUD AND PROUD!

    in Culture

    We are going to tackle a hugh touchy topic: SEXUALITY

    Human sexuality is the capacity to have erotic experiences and responses. A person's sexual orintation may influence their sexual interest and attraction for another person. Sexuality can have biological, emotional/physical or spiritual aspects.

    Fluid sexuality is when a person's sexuality changes over a long period of time. It is not overnight, and usually not extreme, but small changes in sexual attraction can be attributed to the fluidity of human sexuality

    Monosexuality is romantic and/or sexual attraction to members of one sex or gender only. A monosexual person may identify as heterosexual or homosexual

    Asexuality describes individuals who do not experience sexual attraction

    Genderqueer has been used as an adjective to refer to any people who transgress distinctions of gender, regardless of their self-defined gender identity

    Nonmonosexuality- to be physically, romantically, and sexually attracted to an individual who is either male or female bodied. Specifically, a nonmonosexual person can be attracted to a male bodied person who identifies as female, or vice-versa.

    *DISCLAIMEROur culture has accepted 2 hugh lies. The first is that is you disagree with someones lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you have to agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don't have to compromise convictions to be compassionate- phil robertson

    Gender Policing Is an Issue for Everyone, Not Just Queers

    in LGBT

    For gender non-conforming people, navigating a world that is organized via a male/female gender binary becomes a daily struggle. In this episode, we will examine some of the ways in which we can create safer space for gender non-conforming people. The creation of safer space is not only beneficial for gender non-conforming people, but it is key to creating a more democratic and livable world for us all.
    Based on our article Navigating Masculinity as a Black Transman: I Will Never Straighten Out My Wrist, Kai M. Green will talk about the ways in which the gender binary affect people of all gender identities and presentations and how it’s everyone’s responsibility to break those barriers.
