Join us for a live interview with Rich Ferraro, Vice President of Communications for the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). For over 25 years, GLAAD has worked with news, entertainment and social media to bring culture-changing stories of LGBTQ people into millions of homes and workplaces every day. It watches the media to ensure that their coverage of LGBTQ issues and people is fair and accurate and is an advocate for social justice that unites the movement for equality. GLAAD works to increase the visibility of the LGBTQ community and to change hearts and minds. In addition to being GLAAD's primary blogger, Rich has spoken at the two GLAAD Media Awards held so far this year. He also will speak at the upcoming ceremony on May 11th in San Francisco, at which Adam Lambert will be presented with the Davidson/Valentini Award. Among the topics we'll be discussing are GLAAD's history and mission, its past and future work on issues particularly important to the LGBTQ community and the awards being presented to Adam Lambert and Bill Clinton this year.
On Saturday, May 11, at their 24 Annual Media Awards in San Francisco, Adam Lambert will receive the Davidson/Valentini Award from the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).
The award is presented to an out LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality for the LGBT community.
Anyone who knows anything about Adam knows that his heart, soul and efforts are always visibly with those in the LGBT community, especially LGBT youth, and the issues that affect their lives. So why would the Senior Publisher, Norm Kent, of a gay community newspaper write an opinion piece that says Adam doesn’t deserve this award?
Join us and our guests Editor-in-Chief Gideon Grudo and Associate Publisher Jason Parsley of the South Florida Gay News (SFGN), who are currently engaged in a difference of opinion with their Senior Publisher.
Jason is the man who interviewed Adam prior to his being given the Key to the City of Miami during the recent Florida Pride Festival. Gideon is the author of the SFGN editorial rebuttal to Mr. Kent.
Gideon and Jason, who strongly support GLAAD’s selection of Adam as the recipient of this year’s award, will talk with co-hosts Xena and Thea about how the issue arose and the aftermath of Jason’s interview, the Senior Publisher’s piece and Gideon’s rebuttal.
Join us for what promises to be a stimulating look into the world of gay journalism and its view of gay activism.
Aren't there really always warning signs of domestic violence. Haven't you ever noticed a friend's black eye covered with make-up, heard loud voices that appear to be fighting coming from the neighbor's house, or witnessed a stranger hit his girlfriend in the parking lot of a shopping center. Domestic violence always has warning signs. My guests tonight were Diana Franzetti, Brandy Smith, Rita Smith and Attorney Anna Valentini.
Rome is the Eternal City and much of it is underground. There are four recommended underground sights by Amanda Ruggeri that are not to be missed.
1. Basilica of San Clemente
2. The Catacombs of Santa Priscilla
3. Palazzo Valentini
4. The Hopogeum of the Colloseum
You'll also learn a thing or two about public transportation and which of these underground sights you'll need a reservation to enjoy, a tour to enjoy, or if you can simply walk in.
