Join Meka Rae and Renair as we discuss Labels and Roles in the LGBT Community. Do you dress tomboyish but consider yourself "feminine" but people tend to call you a "stud", "butch", "aggressive," and/or "soft stud?" Are you feminine but people assume you are heterosexual, bisexual, or you are a pillow princess? Are you heterosexual but people think you are a lesbian just by the way you dress?
Do labels play a huge part in how you are treated in a relationship? Are you expected to be the "man" of the house just because you dress more masculine? Are you feminine and expected to clean, cook, carry the baby, etc?
We will discuss all of the above and more when you join us on Monday, September the 8th at 10pm Eastern
We look forward to hearing your thoughts

Last month we discussed labels in the LGBT community. The conversation was so full that we knew had to continue the conversation with a part 2. Recently, Raven Simone was featured on Oprah's Where are they Now.
This is her take on labels"
"I don't want to be labeled 'gay,'" Raven says. "I want to be labeled 'a human who loves humans.'"
In fact, Raven tells Oprah that she rejects the notion of labels completely in all areas of her life. "I'm tired of being labeled," she says. "I'm an American. I'm not an African-American; I'm an American."
The link to portions of the episode and the write up is included below.
How do you feel about that label gay, lesbian, stud, femme, pillow princess, etc? Do those labels define who you are as a human being? Are they acceptable in society? Do they affect your sex life or your relatioships? Lets talk about it!
This week, Arizona lawmakers passed the anti-gay bill. In June Russia's president passed a law prohibiting the promotion of any non-traditional sexual relationships. And Nigeria recently passed a bill constituting same sex relationships illegal, with penalties of up to 14 years in prison. In an era of constant progression, the political efforts related to alternative sexual relationships become more stagnant, and in some cases seem to worsen. Is the world at war with the LGBT community? Do you believe these political restrictions are necessary to preserve marriage? Join us as we discuss "Sex Politics: The Worldwide War on the LGBT community" with James Felton Keith (twitter: @JFKii) , board member of the Detroit Regional LGBT Chamber of Commerce & LGBT advocate.
There is a stigma associated with those in our community when it comes to receiving the help necessary help that we need in terms of speaking with a therapist, and obtaining healthcare in general. Tonight we'll examine this issues, its causes, and any possible solutions! Don't miss it!
Building off of a small point from last Saturday's show, today's show focuses on Obama's intentions to try to get as many people as possible within the LGBT community enrolled into Obamacare. While I certainly am not maintaining that the LGBT community should not have access to health insurance or health care, the way this is done in Obamacare is another indicator of why this is NOT about healthcare. It rather is about redistribution and political or ideological favoritism. It threatens to skew the system and raise costs even more with healthy people again bearing the brunt of the cost of the system. They discriminate in trying to make sure we don't discriminate in more than one way. I'll comment on a couple of articles about this and that will be the focus of today's show at 4:30 Eastern time and archived afterward.
Liz Margolies, LCSW, is the founder and executive director of the National LGBT Cancer Network, Based in NYC, the Network focuses on education, training, advocacy and support.
Did you know that the LGBT population has a higher risk rate for cancer? We are going to talk about healthcare barriers that they face, what can be done to reduce that risk and the training programs that are provided for healthcare providers. Also we will talk about how we can come together as a community and take better care of ourselves by taking steps together for preventative health measures. Yes - literally walking together! We will talk about what it means to be an LGBT cancer survivor and their special needs vs. the needs of the mainstream cancer survivor population.
Many LGBT survivors do not feel welcome or understood in mainstream support groups and transgender survivors have been especially excluded. The National LGBT Cancer Network offers FREE online support forums to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender cancer survivors. We will be covering the customized support programs the network offers which are tailored specifically to our needs.
Liz is also a psychotherapist in private practice, specializing in trauma, loss, health disparities and sexuality. Liz is also a blogger for the Huffington Post and helps curate the LGBT Wellness page on the Gay Voices vertical.
