    Marriage Equality: LGBT Advocate Ben Patrick Johnson, Kelly McCracken Plaintiff

    in LGBT

    Welcome to the very first podcast of the "Left of Str8" Show!  The first episode premiere's right after the landmark victory in Marriage Equality in the Supreme Court, and for the first show, we are excited to have one of the plaintiffs in that historic case, Kelly McCracken from Ohio, talking about her road to the Supreme Court while trying to be the legal co-parent on her and her wife's daughter, Ruby's birth certificate.  

    We also have longtime LGBT Advocate, Ben Patrick Johnson from L.A., a familiar voiceover actor, whose voice is featured literally on hundreds of movies and television openings, as well as being a huge advocate for California's Prop 8 marriage equality case, a husband, a philanthropist, and an author, where this August, his 5th book is coming out, SPLINTERS.

    We hope you will enjoy our first show and we apologize for the first minute and a half of audio issues.

    "Religion in the LGBT Community" presented by LGBT Real Talk Radio

    in Blogs

    Religion has been a source of both solace and suffering for many lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans. For while most LGBT Americans have been raised in an organized religion — and many continue to cherish their faith community — too many have been forced to leave those communities behind because of condemnation of LGBT people.

    And yet in recent years, a growing number of organized religious groups in the United States have issued statements officially welcoming LGBT people as members. Many religious organizations also have taken supportive stands on the issues that affect LGBT people in America, such as the fight for freedom from discrimination, the solemnizing of same-sex marriage and the ordination of openly LGBT clergy.

    LGBT Real Talk Radio welcomes the Rev. Valarie Oliver as our special guest for next weeks show on Religion in the LGBT Community. You won't want to miss this very informative show.

    Show date/time: May 5, 2015 at 8:30pm est. You may call in to

    LGBT Enlisting the NOI in Their War Against Black Nationalism

    in Politics

    Is the LGBT movement enlisting tradionally Black Nationalist organizations in their war against Black culture and family?  We believe they are.  The question is whether or not the Black Nationalist organizations are aware that this is occurring or if they are being pulled in unkwowingly.  Either way, we must stop this trend if Pan Afrikanism is to survive the 2nd decade of the 21st Century.

    "Depression in the LGBT Community" presented by LGBT Real Talk Radio

    in Blogs

    Many LGBT people — particularly youth and seniors — experience higher rates of rejection, bullying, harassment, general mistreatment and even violence from the people and institutions that should be protecting them. The enormous effort of … hiding in order to avoid rejection from their families, employers, churches, schools, friends and neighbors can create an even greater sense of anxiety, fear and isolation.  The LGBT population also has a higher tendency for suicide and self-harm.
