    Trans POWER!

    in LGBT

    It’s time to educate yourself about transgender persons AND TransDomination.  Unfortunately although this was supposed to be the year of transgender visibility most of what you see in main stream media is Caitlyn Jenner riding on a bus muttering “don’t go there,” under her breath.  Now I’m not here to shit on a sister’s parade but in my opinion Caitlyn hasn’t been a sister long enough to really speak on behalf of an entire group.
    My guest for this show is the delightfully powerful Sadie Synn, who is also NOT speaking on behalf of the transgender community but can certainly give us her real world view of what it’s like to not only be a transgender woman in our society, but a transgender Domme in a community not known for being welcoming.
    We will be discussing everything from proper terminology and pronoun usage to the difference between gender identity and sexual orientation to North Carolina’s HB2 and what it’s like to be a transgender Dom/Domme.
    Learn more about our guest Sadie Synne, take our poll and for transgender resources CLICK HERE! 
    We want to hear from you!
    Have you been discriminated against as a transgender person? Have you been a victim of hate crimes against you because of your gender identity? What do you think of North Carolina’s HB2 bill? Call in with your thoughts and stories the night of the show

    Curt Schilling fired for trans slur; NHL player suspended for gay slur

    in LGBT

    Former baseball pitcher Curt Schilling reposted a nasty meme against transgender people in reaction to the new anti-LGBT law in North Carolina. ESPN fired him two days later. Schilling was unapologetic. Meanwhile, Andrew Shaw of the Chicago Blackhawks yelled "fucking faggot" when he was sent to the penalty box late in a playoff game against the St. Louis Blues. He first said he didn't remember what he said, then apologized the next day. He was suspended by the NHL for one game.


    We will have trans writer Dawn Ennis on to discuss Schilling's remarks.


    We look at what was a dramatic week for LGBT issues in sports.

    May 3rd, 2016 Open Forum

    in Politics

    In this segment of the Vince Anello show I reported on some of the activities at the city Council meeting on Monday, May 2, 2016. I spoke at the meeting in regards to a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between one of the city's unions. It is intended to settle grievances generated during the period that the city Police Department was operating under a New York State Atty. Gen. Consent Decree. Some callers to the program spoke on a variety of subjects. Some spoke on the national election for president. Some spoke on city government and some issues in the city of Niagara Falls, New York. You will also hear a sustained  discussion on the issue of public bathrooms and trans gender people.

    Trans-Pacific Partnership - The Death of Sovereignty with Meghan Sali

    in Politics

    Trans-Pacific Partnership


    12 nations, 11% of global population, 40% of the global economy, 25% of global imports, 30% of global exports. 800 million people bound by an agreement negotiated in secret from the citizens and almost all elected representatives. Who wrote it then? Trade representatives with multi-national corporate lobbyists and executives at the tables from start to finish.


    A 30 chapter agreement with 5 involving actual trade. Environment. Financial Services. Patents. Copyrights. Intellectual Property. Pharmaceuticals. Health Care. Investment. Labour. Market Access. Procurement. Tobacco. State Owned Enterprises. Biotechnology and GMO's. And a new iron-clad version of the infamous Investor State Dispute Settlement "mechanism" complete with secret tribunals, secret judgements and secret awards. 5,544 pages worth of regulations, schedules, indexes, timetables and LOOPHOLES to empower the most powerful corporations on earth to have veto power say over how signatory nations will live their day-to-day lives. This is the latest method for the mostly American corporate elite to bypass the WTO, exclude and isolate "unfriendly" economies, enslave "freindly" economies and laugh all the way to the bank.


    Protests have been raging in every "partner nation" for years as February 4 nears as the day for "signing" of the agreement in Auckland, New Zealand. There is no opting out of any section or provision unless stated before that signing by any nation. No renegotiation.


    We are joined by Meghan Sali, a digital rights specialist with OpenMedia,org, leading the organization's free expression campaigns. For the past two years, she has been co-ordinating the campaign to shed light on the implications of TPP as they relate to preserving our online rights and building a properous, inclusive digital future.


    Tune in and hear the facts on TPP.

    North Carolina law and trans bathroom use aren't going away. Outsports Reunion.

    in LGBT

    While North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory thought a toothless executive order would "fix" the controversy around North Carolina's anti-LGBT law HB2, all it did was infuriate LGBT people and their supporters. Now the calls on the NBA and others to move events out of the state are broadening, and people in sports are being asked to speak up. 


    One of the people who decided to weigh in was golfer Webb Simpson, who offered a pretty uninformed perspective on transgender people using bathrooms and locker rooms.


    Also, we announced our latest Outsports Reunion, and the first one in a dozen years. This one will focus on bringing LGBT people currently or recently in the sports world together to connect. We will also have various opportunities for Outsports readers and others to be part of the fun. We give a preview of the event in Chicago this June 23-26.

    Black Thoughts and Theory: The Radio Show- The Trans Saharan Slave Trade

    in Politics

    What Do You Know About The Trans Saharan Slave Trade?


     


    Why do we always talk about slavery as if it is a Black and White issue? The reality is that the Arabs have held Black slaves from around 800 AD to this very day, with no end in sight. This abuse of our people by the Arabs and Muslims is a well kept "secret" that must be exposed. How deep does this sickness run? Well, I don't know, but I do know that Arabs use a word "abd" to refer to Blacks, Africans, and slaves without distinction. In other words, if you are Black, they call you a slave.


     


    Join Alex Primo and Asha Zuri Thursday, February 11 at 9 pm EST (6 pm PST, 7 pm MST, 8 pm CST) as we explore, dissect, and discuss the horror and devastating travesty that we call the Trans Saharan Slave Trade. A trade that caused the death of millions of our Melanated brothers and sisters. A despicable assault that castrated our brothers and turned our women into sex-slaves. You do not want to miss this episode.


     


    Plus the brother Dennis Jefferson will be dropping by with another highly informative Healthy Matters update.
