SORT BY Relevancy
We have returned from our hiatus guys, and plan to continue our beloved series of queer representation in media. October is LGBT+ history month which is cause for more celebration! In this episode we'll be discussing a wide array of movies that portray members of the queer community. Also how the progression of these movies changed the view on members or the lack of any change. Some to mention are Blue Is The Warmest Color, Dallas Buyers Club and much more. Tune in!
A discussion of how the media is slowly yet surely accepting more of the LGBTQ community on television. No longer are they just simply there for comedic relief, but are actually having their own lead roles in a new show, or as extremely important supporting characters. Tonight, we talk about shows coming up that should have more representation or doing a great job doing so. And past shows that were just teaming with wonderful array of the LGBTQ community.
I often wonder if the staunch defense of problematic icons in marginalized communities is some sort of residual internalized self hate? Or desperation? Or both?
what would happen if we smashed all the pedestals of the rapists, misogynists, and domestic abusers in the black community?
Not to say these types of predators and abusers don't exist in white communities- but white people have more visibility and more options. I know Rape and domestic Violence are underreported in white communities as well, so we may well be consuming movies and music by abusers. But when consuming white media I can easily choose to watch horror movies not affiliated with Polanski. I can watch comedies not directed by woody Allen or starring Sean Penn.
But if I want to watch a nostalgic family friendly tv show featuring a black family and I ditch "the Cosby show"... I've got... "family matters". Those were the only 2 mainstream black family shows I remember from my childhood. Those were the only places I could watch people who looked like me, had hair like me, dealt with confusion about dating, family, growing up, and racism all at the same time.
Is that why the black community hesitates to shun abusers in our midst? Because we won't have any representation if we cut out the bad people? Or is it because we think we don't deserve better representation and we secretly believe the lies we've been fed about ourselves?
Is it a mix of both? Don't we deserve better? Both in terms of more representation and better role models?
Why don't we demand more for ourselves? Are we scared we don't deserve more or scared we won't get what we deserve?

Tonight on this powerful show with host Kiler Davenport and Guest Cohost Ken Dost. On this show we are going to talk about Installment Lease NOT A Mortgage Loan.
We are going to be talking about low and middle income families getting hooked into these so called mortgages without reading or understanding the fine print and in most cases not having the proper representation during the mortgage transaction.
Mortgage fraud runs into the billions of dollars throughout the United States. We hope tonight to shed some light on this very important subject.
By the time this show airs, the grand ceremony will be over. Canada will know who is in the first Liberal Cabinet of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The buildup has been a novelty of sorts due to the change in power. A bigger numerical majority in the House of Commons than the one it replaced. Members from every province and territory. Pledges of gender parity and regional representation. A whopping 150 rookies out of 184 MP's. How will the promise of a smaller Cabinet actually play out compared to the bloated reward/threat system we have supposedly done away with.
So many promises, so little time. Senate. Surveillance. Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women. Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Scuttling of the F-35 disaster. Trans-Pacific Partnership. Citizenship. Refugees. International reputation. Climate change. Employment Insurance. Long-form census. Scientific freedom. Democratic and electoral reform. Retirement age rollback to 65. Veterans Affairs. Marijuana.
We will look at who made the cut as Ministers and what they now face to deliver what was sold as the Liberal platform. Tune in, join the chat, call in and input on the "new" Canadian future.

There is an old saying which claims that great art is 90% perspiration and 10% inspiration. The truth though is that exceptional creativity is nurtured by a complexly brewed combination of unswerving dedication and God-given talent. It’s a fact no better illustrated than by the history of Vancouver’s hard-rockers ART OF DYING and their talismanic frontman Jonny Hetherington. What ART OF DYING has been able to create is muscular, vivacious hard-rock bursting with lung-shattering choruses and a sincerity that is impossible to fake. Equally at home with a lead-fingered riff or a deft slow-burner, there is an ease of breadth in AOD’s repertoire that would send most of their peers salad-green with envy. Gradually, Hetherington’s ambitions grew beyond his local sidewalk and he began to seek out like-minded collaborators that he could expand his already impressive template with. Drummer Jeff Brown was swiftly recruited and he and Hetherington set about formulating the powerful nucleus of what ART OF DYING would soon become. It was recordings of those initial sessions that would eventually find their way into the hands on DISTURBED’s Dan Donegan - a guitarist with both a fine personal pedigree and a keen ear for new talent. Plucked from relative obscurity, the band introduced guitarist Tavis Stanley and bassist Cale Gontier to their ranks on the eve of the run with DISTURBED - the quartet playing onstage together for the very first time during the soundcheck of the opening show of the tour. Now, with a critically-acclaimed and widely-played major label debut under their belts, ART OF DYING are returning with new long-player RISE UP, their most imperious effort to date and, by the band’s own admission the truest representation of their sound they’ve ever distilled, which was produced by David Bendeth (Bring Me The Horizon, Breaking Benjamin, Of Mice & Men).

Hello, my name is Annette M. Blackwell
I am a Mayoral Candidate for the City of Maple Heights. I made the decision to run for office because the residents
of Maple Heights have had to settle for a compromised quality of life for far too long. More specifically, in the
areas of safety, senior services, year-round youth recreational activities and other desired community services.
• Recruit and Retain a "Best & Brightest" Administration
• Aggressive Economic Recovery; Economic Development
• Citizen Representation — Better Transparency of Citys' Business Practices
• Public Relations - Improve Citys' Image
• Quality of Life Consciousness (Safety, Seniors & Youth)
