Join me July 30, 2014 @ 8pm EST as we have Transgender Coversations an open conversation about the ongoing issues, life and love in the community and how all this revolves around our panelists and maybe, just maybe you. Joining me will be Louis Mitchell, Reverend Eunice “Yunus” Coldman and Jack Ori.
Louis serves as the Engagement Coordinator for the TransFaith and as the Minister of Family and Congregational Life for South Congregational Church in Springfield. He is founding member of the Trans People of Color Coalition, a member of the National Black Justice Coalition’s Leadership Advisory Council, a member of The Fellowship of Affirming Ministries’ Trans-Saints.
Reverend Eunice “Yunus” Coldman is an ordained Interfaith Minister and licensed NYC Wedding Officiant. He is the CEO of Soulful Touch Ceremonies which provides ceremonial services throughout the New York tri-state area and Long Island. Having come from an Evangelical background, in 2010 he began seeking a path that included multiple spiritual walks of life and finally became an Interfaith Minister for the sole purpose of bringing life and divine love to those who seek his counsel and services.
Jack Ori likes to say that he took the “long way around” to the life he was meant to live. Born and raised as the girl he was not, he struggled with anger, depression and social difficulties that interfered with his ability to use his intelligence for anything productive. It wasn’t until he began gender transition in his early 30s that he began living up to his potential. Today, Jack is pursuing his Masters in mental health counseling at the New School in New York City while earning a living as a freelance writer and life coach for young adults.
HERE WE TALK CANDIDLY ABOUT TRANSGENDER, TRANSEXUAL. IS IT RIGHT, IS IT WRONG? WHAT MAKES A PERSON WALK THAT PATH?
On Last week's show, "Do Best Friends Make Good Lovers", the crew ended up getting into an ongoing debate about how to address a transgender. We never managed to get on the same page and almost completely went off of the actual show topic. We eventually converted back to show topic but after engaging in such an intense debate, we realized there was unfinished business and that we'd need an entire show to debate about this topic. Well tonight the debate continues.
