'Encyclopedia of New York' covers the history and legacy of the gay community
"Well, I just wanted to mention you know, we speak of different groups like artists and, uh, the German population. Italian population influence, but I want to emphasize That the gay population in New York, which has been here forever has made a huge influence on culture, even politics. You know, with stone wall, we started a thing that spread around the world. And you know, it's just there've been involved in every aspect of the creative aspects of New York, so I just wanted to see if that was at all included. I'm very pleased to say that there's a long and detailed entry about the gay rights movement, Most definitely claiming that it really got on seat in New York City. It's by a wonderful Woman that teaches the new school and Claire Potter on gets really richly written, and what I like most about it is that it focuses on the roots of the gay rights movement proceeding, Stonewall. You know, there's a sort of familiar history that it all started in 1969. And then you know progress to through what came after that, And that's that's all good to tell and certain, including here, but there were groups going back. 100. Years before that, the magazine society and the Daughters of the lightest and you know, there were there were sort of gay friendly parties in the Harlem Renaissance. It doesn't all begin with the sort of familiar history and I'm very pleased to say that we Lay that out in this book, I think in a lot of good detail. Yeah, there's about for 3.5 pages worth so, Adrian. Thank you for bringing
Born This Way Is Old Science
"The confirmation hearings for Judge Amy, CONYBEARE IT Senator Maisy. Hirano of Hawaii expressed outrage and shock that the nominee would use the term sexual preference instead of sexual orientation sexual preference announced senator. TORONTO. Is An offensive and outdated term used by anti lgbtq activists to suggest that sexual orientation is a choice. It is not after the Exchange Merriam Webster which apparently like most Americans had not gotten that Nemo with these new linguistic absolutes quickly changed the definition of sexual preference in its online dictionary. To, indicate that this wording is now offensive who knew we'll beyond the orwellianism of the literally changing the dictionary to support a political climb. It seems that Senator Hirano is the one who's actually behind the Times on this whole sexual orientation versus Sexual Preference Issue According to Dr Glenn Stanton, and then outstanding new article at public discourse. Judge Barrett's terminology is actually more in line with the latest thinking of leading gender scholars for example, Professor Sorry Van Anders at candidates Queens University has stated that. Quote sexual orientation as a term is increasingly seen as regressive because it belongs to the bio centralist project translating to English. What she saying is that the word orientation suggests that sexuality is hard wired and according to Professor Anders that's just not the consensus anymore among her peers though the whole born this way claim was once a very useful slogan to advance gay rights it no longer serves the goals of the LGBTQ. Movement years ago for instance, two scholars at Ucla question the concept of. Sexual. Orientation especially for women to instead that women's sexuality and Orientation Fluid Changeable over time and variable across social context other social scientists that Glenn Stanton quotes in his public discourse Article Call For a paradigm shift in how female sexuality is studied and described, and there've been plenty of surveys indicate that most self identified lesbians will have relationships with men. At some point. There's also a more obvious problem with the idea of a fixed orientation that's found in the very initials of the acronym especially the. Be The queue of lgbtq as political commentator Douglas Murray who identifies as gay by the way rights bisexuals continued to be viewed as some kind of betrayal from within the gay community gay men tend to believe that men who claim to be by are in fact, gays in some form of denial yet according to a pew research report from last summer bisexuals account for almost half of all LGBTQ adult in the US in fact, the authors of a new book published by Harvard University Press. Think. That male bisexuals are those who call themselves mostly straight vastly outnumber exclusively gay men. Thus they conclude the old system of gay straight or BI has as stanton puts, it outgrown its usefulness and even bigger challenge in the B. to the born. This way dogma is the T- gay rights and gay marriage were sold to us. The premise that homosexuality is hard wired maybe even genetic like race but anyone claiming transgender as an identity does. So in spite of physical and genetic realities not because. Of them and the CUE which usually stands for questioning well, that continues to evolve in both meaning and practice to include more and more sexual preferences as an identity. Well, one wonders whether Senator Horon would feel compelled to lecture the various social scientists that Glenn Stanton sites. In this article my suspicion is she wouldn't in fact, my suspicion is that Senate Arana was fed this talking point by an aide who's checking twitter and saw it as an opportunity to tar and feather judge Barrett as. A big what's ultimately revealed by her political posturing awoke language policing however is crucially important for all of us to now that phrases such a sexual orientation or sexual preference or whatever. The latest nomenclature are terms made up not to describe reality but to advance the idea that has revolutionized. So much of our culture on politics that sexual attraction and urge define and determine who we are. That's the idea we can never embrace even if we're facing outrage from a senator

"One of the lauwers photography at least for me is the doors can open. Being photographer has provided me access to people and communities that I might never have considered otherwise the combination of a camera and my curiosity has gifted me with meeting fascinating people and entering their world and many times. Those encounters have been especial- to me as the photographs at created. Chris suspects photography is all about that. His explorations of subcultures in the areas of music and sexuality have resulted in images. That are raw an intimate. His latest book leather boys gathers images of a segment of the gay community in and around the DC area. The story of how he gained access and his process over the years provide some valuable information for anyone taking on a long-term personal project regardless of the World. They are hoping to explore this. Is your body an ex and welcome back to the candidate frame and it was good to see. It's been a long time yet. Has I'm trying to think I guess the last time I saw you This past summer at focus on the story Ryan. I'm looking forward to talking to you. We met a couple of years back. And you're always been on my radar but it's just like as with as with so many people who I put down on my list sometimes years before I finally get them on the show but I'm glad we're funding hearing chance to sit down and chat. I do want to remind you ever. I've been on candid frame before. Are you on the panel? Yeah Yeah at Miami Straight Photography Festival but I think about it in terms of one to one conversations. Sure Yeah I had just a taste now. I get the full meal I guess. Okay okay scared me for a bit getting ready but no comment background. I found out that he come from a family. Did A lot of traveling. Your Dad was a diplomat. You were born in the Philippines. That is that is correct. I was actually adopted in the Philippines. Which is interesting and I'm definitely not Filipino. So yeah was adopted there. My family was with the State Department and my dad travel to various countries around the world. All the way up through the end of my college experience. So I've lived in Thailand Denmark Moscow London and then visited various countries for like a month or a week or whatever the entire time. Did you have any any idea in terms of your birth be? We have information get to you so I actually. When my dad passed away a couple years ago she left that to me. But I still haven't looked at it weren't well I you know. Part of it is is. My parents were my parents. I've felt adopted or not. You know it was just something. I don't know man should ask my my therapist about that but I just haven't I haven't really like I feel like I don't want to give up on. The idea of my parents are my real parents because they adopted me. And that's who cared for me you know. I'm a little scared to find out who my real parents are. What if there is life changing information there? You know who knows yeah? That's fascinating especially the fact that it's just sitting in a letter somewhere. That's well it's not. It's not just a letter. It's a whole packet with a bunch of official documents and stuff so so doing all this traveling. How did he sort of color? Your perspective in terms of when you finally came in critter life yourself here in the in the states. Well I have to say that little funny story about my first time that I remember in the United States was coming back for first grade and I could speak Danish better than it could speak English and I was held back a grade because my English language skills were not that good and then from there. I went to Thailand. I believe you know from there. I went to Moscow. Actually so I have I think a more of a kind of a like a world view of and I was friends a people of all different kinds of cultures classes races. What have you I would say was a very wholesome upbringing in terms of Having kind of a global perspective and in your early twenties you're part of a of a of a punk band music start becoming occurred of your early life so that's another a funny story I remember being in Moscow and I guess the sex pistols had come out. And this is I. Think nineteen seventy six and I guess there was a article in the New York Times or The Washington Post because we used to get that at the embassy in Moscow Mama's reading about it and she's like Chris. You wouldn't listen to that stuff would you and then and then on our First trip our trip to Helsinki Finland. We got to go to a record store in the first album. Picked up was was a clash album. Actually I didn't WanNA bring home a sex pistols but I'd done a little bit of kind of asking around the embassy like what did some of the other punk bands picked up a clash in devo album and ever since then I was kinda hooked but because I was traveling and nobody I knew played an instrument. I didn't even play an instrument and it wasn't until I got to college that I met up with some people that played instruments like one of my roommates play guitar. Who's really good? He's still actually playing today on the Jam Band Circuit and anyway so one night. We're hanging out late. It leaves the house and they're like hey play the space and I'm like I don't even know what to do. There's like follow the dots man and so I just followed what they were doing with their hands. And then I was like you. Know the hippy. Music is okay. But I'm really into punk rock. And then when I've moved back to DC after college I met up with some of the former members of the band scream. I don't scream was a big discord banned. They were banned. I really enjoyed in high school early college. And that's the band where David Grohl came from and so this is some of the other members one of the other members from scream their original drummer before girl was in the span. It was like man. This guy's awesome. I get to play with him. And that's basically how I jumped into that in. How long were you into? I played in punk bands from ninety three to two thousand and on. I'm still playing in my neighborhood so I've just been continuing that I still I still. I still play a little bit in a Plano. Reggae DUB reggae band in my in my neighborhood but I was playing. I started my own record label. I put out like twenty plus CDs with international distribution all around the world toward all over the the. Us many times so yeah. I like to travel see new places. Meeting people were using a camera. Did you document those times? Not at all? It wasn't until the birth of my son that I got a camera and that was because of my wife she was like we need to get a camera and at that time it was like I don't know if we can afford it and whatever so I got a cannon power shot and this this had been like two thousand six or so. My son was born in two thousand and five so it was a little bit after that. We we still. I think the I felt. We had the IPHONE camera which is like we need a better camera so and then are basically read the manual and then I went out just shooting around my neighborhood or wherever. Just kinda figure out figuring out all the settings and that's where I figured out like what motion blur could do and stuff like that shutter drag and that was really cool and the entire throughout my entire punk rock career. I was always going into the library or on the Internet. You later in the late nineties to find just kind of like raw images to use for flyers and that's how I kind of discovered who who we g was and Dion rbis and stuff. I didn't really look at them through photographers. I was looking more through a punk rockers. I like going. You know what? What are the photos that kind of excite me or that are weird a different? That will look really good on a flyer in peak people's interest and so I spent a lot of time in the Arlington County Public Library in their photo book section. Just kinda going through trying to find stuff and yeah and so. That's kind of so I had my and I even bought like some photo books to just to use for flyers so wasn't until I actually started work in a cameras. Like hey man I could probably make photos like those guys did in those books.
Increasing Racism in the Time of Coronavirus
"Asian Americans have historically experienced racism and xenophobia during times of war and disease in fact acts of racism against Asian Americans due to cove in nineteen have already been taking place across the US. And the world in cities like Seattle Albuquerque New York London. I can't help. But think of Vincent Chin at this time Chin was a Chinese American man who was beaten to death by two white men Ronald Evans Michael Nitz after a bar. Fight in Highland Park Michigan in Nineteen eighty-two Eban's was a Chrysler plant supervisor in knits laid off auto worker because Chin was Asian. They blamed him and the rising Japanese auto industry for the decline of American automakers. Vincent Chin was Chinese American and he was beaten to death with a baseball bat so hard that his skull cracked open. His murderers never spent a day in jail. What happened to me is nothing compared to what happened to Vincent Chin? But what happened me is just one of an increasing number of anti-asian racist acts some of them violent taking place across the US and the world and it does not help that. The President of the United States Donald Trump is calling cove nineteen knocked by. It's given scientific name but by name. He completely made up the Chinese virus. There are some at least one went off official who use the term Kung Fu referring to the fact that this virus started in China. Is that acceptable? Is it wrong? Are you worried that having this virus the talked about as as a Chinese virus that that my order? Who certainly that? I'm not sure if the person's name but would you consider the fact that the person at the White House used the term flu. My question is that wrong conflict and do you think using the term Chinese virus that Asian Americans address that people in General. I think they probably would agree with one. Hundred percent comes from China. There's nothing not to grow. How about last question now? You might think it's true. Cove in nineteen came from China. It's a Chinese virus in their other diseases. That have been named after the places they came from like Ebola in Murs or Middle East Respiratory Syndrome. Look there's no denying we're covered nineteen came from but to call it. The Chinese virus without any context create some serious problems in America. It puts not just Chinese Americans but all Asian Americans endanger and frankly. It's way detract from the federal government's failure to take this virus seriously from the beginning. By the way in two thousand fifteen the World Health Organization actually issued best practices for the naming of new infectious diseases which discouraged the use of naming them after geographic locations. The new guidelines aimed to quote minimize negative impact on trade travel tourism or animal welfare end to quote avoid causing offense to any cultural social national regional professional or ethnic groups. Now you might think. Oh that's just ridiculous political correctness but did you know that in the nineteen eighty s aids was first called Grid Gay Related Immune deficiency this made people think aids was gay cancer. They literally called it. That which fueled discrimination against the gay community in severely stalled much needed services in efforts to search for a cure. You can listen to the episode hymies story to learn more about it might be worth mentioning that the two thousand nine h one n one influenza virus also known as swine flu was first detected in people in the United States calling it the American flu would have been
Nancy Walker shares her experience with the Gay Rights Movement
"I'm Eric Marcus and this is making a history. Nancy Walker had a type she liked the brainy ones in nineteen sixty two. When Nancy was in her late twenties she met Penny Penny was smart? It is a whip wise beyond her eighteen years and she read James Joyce Nancy was impressed. The two fell in love and became life partners by the time. Nancy and Penny got involved in the gay rights movement in the Early Nineteen Seventy S. They were living in Toronto Canada where he was attending graduate school. That's where they joined the first gay organization in the Mid Seventy S. They moved back to the US to Boston. Massachusetts and Nancy soon volunteer to work at a weekly newspaper called Gay Community News. As you know from our previous episodes the Post stonewall years saw an explosion of new gay rights organizations and along with the new organizations organizations came scores of new publications the Gay Community News or CNN was among the more prominent and influential Gay Liberation Paper with the national readership readership. Nancy was in her forties when she joined she was an outspoken New Yorker and a moderate pragmatist. It's no surprise that Nancy and the younger more radical staff didn't always see eye to eye. So here's the scene. He's the winter of Nineteen eighty-nine and I've just is travel to the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston where Nancy and Penny share a classic Victorian House complete with a turret and peeling paint. They've been a couple for a long time and it shows all Nancy night. Talk Pennies on hand to offer tea chime in and help Nancy when her memory fails her. Nancy is sitting in a comfortable upholstered chair. She's dressing dark slacks and a light colored blouse which is where I clicked my microphone. I press record interview with Nancy Walker Sunday December tenth. Nineteen eighty-nine at the home of Nancy Walker in Jamaica Plains and Massachusetts interviewers. Eric Marcus tape one side one. I had gotten fed up with pretending to be straight. We'd been together nine years and we had no gay gay friends. So that's when we first went to New York and then we went back to Canada. We would just on vacation in New York went back. That must've Vince. Seventy one or seventy two. I'm not sure took us. Even though we thought we were big shots took us a long time. They get the guts to go. Remember kept finding excuses uses not to go. It's always something wrong. Finally we went and we looked around the room and so people like our grandmothers. I said what the Hell is this what we were afraid of. And that was the beginning and then we went to Canada and so I notice a little newspaper that talked about home files what they call the home of Fire Organization should. Hey let's call and see what it's about and we did. That was seventy two. We first got involved. Well he belonged to the community home. Five Association Toronto better known as Chat and what was the group's reason for being. Oh I think it was An umbrella group for everything for for counseling for social purposes. They even I suppose. Did some legal work the law had changed. The law was universally changed to a consenting adult law in Canada so they had legal advantages that we didn't have that they didn't have the socialist. Matt it's it was it. It was still terribly condemned. People were very conservative there. I remember in Canada trying so hard to get any gay gay publications to find out what was going on in the world and there was one little sleazy bookstore that carried gay papers. They had things like that but be willing to go into what was labeled and known to the public as a filthy bookstore and when we moved here there was a little note. You you know little convenience store across the street from the apartment we lived in and I walked in there and LO and behold his gay newspaper the Gay Community News. It was a quarter order so I bought this thing and I said hey look. It's out in the open. It's okay we don't have to do sleazy things to be gay and didn't know at at the time I was GONNA wind up making the newspaper and not having to pay for it. I think the reason I worked there was. I didn't want water for the news did you. Nineteen seventy six in May nineteen seventy six. What was unlikely that? What was the operation like physical kinds of people? It was unbelievable up wrong sleep flight of stairs into a big open space. That was a mess they had to. It worked very hard to get. What little materials they could? They had no money never had any money. And there were some scruffy looking people very radical people any kind of dress you can imagine. They wore a lot of the people. I knew there are now gone because of AIDS was suicide I mean the voice had long hair every kind of hair. Every kind of everything was a real mixed bag was not a luxurious place. But it was home it meant a great deal to all of us. Every view was gone. Maybe what I'm trying to say because that's how I really I felt. was that somebody else in the rest of the world not fully honest that you could be yourself and we. We didn't get along with each other at all. Even the people who had the same political persuasions didn't get along but still we knew we were among our own you know. It's like a Jewish family. You may not get along but you know this is your place in the rest of it out there is the diaspora. It's not your place. So That's how oh I felt. I don't know how other people felt about. I just know they loved it terribly. Paper had to go on no matter what and it went through hell. It went through fire. They burn the place astound once and we just moved over to a place in Cambridge. That let us use their space and we never missed a week. That paper has been continuously we published since it started in two weeks during the year. They have vacations. It's quite a remarkable achievement. It was either the end of the seventies of the beginning of the eighties and it was devastating blow. Yes it was awesome right. I guess they figured they couldn't get us any other way they were going to do. They couldn't get us that way either. What was what was the purpose of purpose? Yeah I think I think the purpose was to get out of the gate National Gay newspaper. It was the only gate national weekly. It's gone on to something. I consider me three. We need contact with each other. You know there was still gay. People who didn't know there was anybody else in the world. It's hard coming from a place like New York. Imagine that but there there are people in Kentucky and Louisiana and places like that. That didn't know there were any of the gay people. I didn't know there were gay. Men I had no idea I was so delighted the first time I met an openly gay male. I can't tell you it's a brother somebody I can love. You know there were no. I don't think about I mean I didn't I grew up in my own. Little head issue. Weiji Museum in DC N. existence. It started before I got this only three years old with a mission that she was there. A awed yes. Oh if anything was holy was G. C. N. it was a tremendous sense of mission and we loved it and protected What it meant to me was finally all my life? I said I've got this great ideas and I would like somebody to know about them so finally I got a place where I could write and other people could read it. Let's go back to the beginning of interview with you beginning questions. What were you born? Nineteen thirty five. I was born on Saint Patrick's Day and I think he's just terrific because I wound up in a city where just in the city of Boston it a holiday day on where we one flower Fifth Avenue Hospital in New York. My mother was born there in thirty. One Yeah you see. I could've been your mother. That's where would you been in one thousand nine hundred five hundred. BJ have any recollection of that on the day itself. I know I wasn't Merrick. That's lived and I was terrified throughout the war because I had a warped perception. Maybe not so walked what was going on with Jews but they were being put an ovens and all I could think about was being put into an oven so I was quite nervous wreck until the war was. She thought they might come to me. I'm sure if we lost the war I was going to get cooked. So that's part of the reason. I love this this country so much that whenever my my my ex colleagues would not the country I think eight roster I am a Jew. There's no way I'm going anywhere and when I met Jewish people in Canada they said you know you are so aggressively Jewish. There's there's nowhere else in the world. But in America Fed Jews are open about being Jewish and proud of it. She said he keeps you mouth shots. I want an awful way to lose his goddamn closets all over the world. I've been closeted about being Jewish. I got enough trouble so I was always all my life of conscious of being Jewish and being thankful that I was here and and being a lesbian also. I'm still thankful I'm here with all due respect to my I walked progressive friends. This country isn't the enemy. UH system works. It may be the newest country in the civilized world. But it's the greatest one in my opinion so you're right place. I can hear how you could be significant odds with your comrades-in-arms because they hadn't lived through the war. Aw they didn't have the really intense feeling that if I hadn't been in this country I probably wouldn't exist at. Aw
Another Prominent Conversion Therapy Centre Founder Has Come Out as Gay
"Did you guys hear about the leader of the ex gay conversion therapy movement who came out as this gay last week and apologized other gay people for the lies and the army done was that Oh no no no not not Michael Busey and Gary Cooper those homos almost co-founded Exodus International Nineteen seventy-six for decades exodus with the world's largest ex gay ministry but just three years after co founding it boosting Cooper came out what is gay and got married well. They got commitment ceremony which was the best idea at the time and apologized other gay people harm they done and the lies that they told was that no no. I'm not talking about Alan Chambers either. He was the last guy to exodus international became the president of the organization in two thousand and one and then shut the thing down twenty thirteen at which point he apologized to the gay people who've been harmed by exodus and admitted the conversion therapy doesn't work chambers didn't come out as gay but he did describe himself at the time is not straight but I wasn't talking about him and I wasn't talking about John. Smith either who was the former director of love and action and other ministry that tried to convert Gable Industry People Smid came out in two thousand eleven married to dude move to Texas and I'm not talking about John. Paulk the founder of loved one out to gay conversion therapy the program run by the Anti Gay hate group is on the family he came out as gay or came out as gay again in two thousand thirteen and I'm not talking about Ben Grisham. Jeremy Marks are Tim Rimal Anthony Van Brown or guenter bomb. All leaders of conversion therapy programs who've come out admitted their programs are ineffective and harmful apologized to the gay community no the former ex gay leader. We are talking about this week. The most recent high profile inductee into the ranks of the ex ex gays also known as the gays is mccray game. The man who founded hope for wholeness back in Nineteen Ninety nine conversion therapy is not just a lie but it's very harmful game told the post and courier baby game should Google Chambers or Paulk or any of the others who came up for him and game went on to say harmful because it is false advertising false advertising not only doesn't conversion therapy work as has the leaders of this crackpot movement reminded every single time they rub one out but it does real harm. Buonarroti people the kind of people these groups prey on have been driven to suicide game pokes mid Marks Chambers Busey Cooper ex gay leaders coming out as gay should really be a dog bites man story at this point joint and yet somehow it isn't people are still shocked shocked to learn that a man who dedicated his life to talking other people out of being gay was released secretly trying to talk himself out of it the whole time protect. Anyone tries to talk. You ought to be engaged actually trying to talk himself out of being gay and not having anymore success with himself that he's having with you but this just in the Washington Post reports that the ex gay Christianity movement is making a comeback.

50 Years After Stonewall Riots, Some LGBTQ Youth Still Struggle With Acceptance
"Wraps up folks marked the fiftieth anniversary Friday of one right it's began at the Stonewall inn in New York City a police raid led the backlash that fuel the modern day gay rights movement CBS news correspondent David bag no has more just recently the NYPD commissioner James o'neal apologized to the gay community the actions in the laws were discriminatory and oppressive to remember where you were when you decided I have to do this I wasn't sure I was going to do it until I got to tell you quite frankly this is not this is this has to be done otherwise actually is not going to be the place that aids the bank and correspondent Steve Caton talk with a meat Paley he C. E. O. of the Trevor project that's the world's largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ youth thirty nine percent of L. G. B. T. Q. young people and more than half of transgender a non binary you'd say they've seriously considered suicide troubling numbers they are troubling and their heart breaking and frankly in twenty nineteen I think many of us hope that we would not still be at the point where LGBTQ youth were facing discrimination and isolation that would lead to these numbers so for us it's important that people know that fifty years after the Stonewall uprising there's been a huge amount of progress but there is still so much more work to do now you man the phones at that your organization and you've talked to people what are they saying about the things they face well a lot of young people that reach out to us are worried they're worried about what is going to happen if they come out and let people know who they are and who they love they might be worried about what that would look like from their parents other members of their family friends people at school faith communities even their therapists and one PM people reach out to us we are we don't live and we tell them there may be people in your life you may not accept you for being who you are but we want you to know that there are many many people in the world who will not only accept you for being who you are but will celebrate you for being who you are and I want you to know that I'm one of those people and I'm proud of you for being who you are now this was in USA today the other day you might think young people are more accepting these days of a lot of issues not just this but this survey found forty five percent in the eighteen to thirty four age range they were comfortable interacting with L. G. B. T. Q. people last year but that's down from sixty three percent just a couple of years ago so what what do you think that shift is going on yeah I was a very upsetting study and I think one of the things we have to recognize is that progress is not necessarily I'm always moving forward there can be a box lights there can be people having rights removed from them and we I think we've seen that in the past few years after decades and decades of it increasing acceptance and support and legal rights for LGBT Q. people we have seen in the past few years rights taken away that's particularly impacted a lot of trans gender and non binary young people but at the Trevor project we saw the day after the presidential election in twenty sixteen our call volume more than doubled from LGBTQ youth who were worried about what was going on in the political climate and I think that that makes really clear to us that words do matter policies and laws are important but when there is hateful rhetoric in the political discourse and in the broader culture that trickles down and has an effect on young people and you talk about that broad national reaction so often it depends on where you live I mean in certain states laws are different people are different in how they deal with these issues that's absolutely right and there are some rights that are federal and national but I think a lot of people in the U. S. don't realize they're still many states were things that I think people thought were outlawed decades ago or centuries ago are still legal one of those is conversion therapy and for those who don't know what that is it's the discredited and dangerous practice of trying to change someone's sexual orientation or gender identity it is still legal today in thirty two states in the country so there is still a lot of work to do and a lot of states and communities where there are still horrific practices and things being done to LGBTQ youth service your group direct people who might be dealing with the thoughts of suicide or something like that to to get to the right place where they can get some supporters or get to some people who can help them out we do we provide a number of different types of support for LGBT cute so we run the only twenty four seven phone taxed and shot services for LGBTQ youth so they can reach out to us if they want to pick up the phone tax shot however they want to get help there is a counselor there who is ready to

"I think that, you know, that might sound extreme to some people, but I think we have to name the problem for what it is. And to show how insidious it is. And not only does it really harm. People's lives on an individual level. But it also has these larger systemic implications in terms of our ability to work together as a community for for change and liberation. Yeah, that's such an important point it functions as a wedge to keep the gay community from coming together around these issues of liberation and I think it's also insidious because people can think of it as well. This is just what I desire, my desire is for someone who looks like this, right? And be curious to talk with you a little bit about the politics of desire. And, you know, you talk about how desires political for someone who's like, well, I don't know. I just I just prefer this. What would you say? How would you explain that? So to our preferences. Never just inherent or personal. They're always political because we exist in a social context. So our desires don't exist independently of that context, so well to a certain extent, when might have innate preferences, and we can't rate at the drop of a hat just changed that we can think critically about where that's coming from grade. And so let, why is it that, you know, I like people that are smaller bodied as opposed to larger body or, or you know, why, why do I like white people are not attracted to people color way, whatever it is. And when we start unpacking the roots of that raid, and do our desires, and preferences alone with Ray, who is considered superior or inferior when we start to look at these. Larger systems of a vantage on in disadvantage. And we think through that break, then does our preference, which we might originally think of as innate does it start to shift Raver William hack. Why is it that this might be desirable to me? But, but that isn't is it because that's how you really feel or because that's what, what you've been told it is so fascinating testing through that. And I feel like that, you know, I think in my younger days, when I was sort of spinning apart, questioning everything and having a lot of anxiety about stuff. I feel like those kinds of questions could have made me feel torn apart. And I think it might be might be worth it to just acknowledge for people who are in that place. Maybe this isn't the work you need to be doing right now. You know, if you're in a place of questioning everything in your life, and not feeling you have a ground underneath you, then finding that ground is probably important, but I feel like. These conversations to me now like where I'm at in my life. Now, I find so fascinating to think through that and feel equipped to be able to do that work and think more critically about what I've been conditioned to desire, you know, at this point in life. So I think it's, it's maybe also an issue of where we're at in our life that can we even do that work to be at the right place. I think in, you also have to have the tools and people are often given the tools to, to do that. And that's part of what I'm trying to. Two in my work is to give people some terms and concepts in contact to be able to start thinking through some of the stuff because I think particular for hey man, so her to two sociologists pilot Klein, who actually made the argument in their work that the body issues that gay men deal with, we are on the same level as heterosexual women that both groups can face similar pressures but he added this in time, we have no game ends body liberation movement that exist to the extent that that one does within contemporary feminism whereas, a subset of, of contemporary feminism m there's so many people that are in doing this work from feminist contacts in your yourself.

Cosmo Murphy, which for music fan can sometimes feel like going to church, and that's fitting because they're always held on Sundays at these events. I learned about an album from artists producers and other smart music people. Then the lights went down the phones went off and the audience listened to the album together straight through no interruptions. That's it. It seems really simple. But hearing a record on pristine vinyl through a world class sound system revealed things I never noticed before the experience was eliminating an often moving even when the needle skipped to bring some of that album worship here to studio.

You probably figured out borrows from the song by Kate. Bush an artist we hope to feature in this series. These records represent women musicians at the peak of their creative powers, and whose influences felt all over the musical map. And this first story focuses on one of the most significant albums of the American punk movement. One that fused rock with free form poetry and drew many into the artistic nexus of New York City in the mid nineteen seventies.

And now back to our story as the sixties slipped into the seventies. New York City was experiencing an identity crisis and rock and roll was experiencing a spirituality crisis. There was a general cynicism toward hippie ideals and New York City in particular was more adept at celebrating the individual a cohesive cultural center had not yet replaced the unifying force field of the sixties counterculture movement. This was especially true with music is different. Experimental strains began to fan out and spire by other forward thinking late sixties New York acts like the velvet underground and the east village electric duo the silver apples. Around this time.

Other people of color who happen to be a part of the LGBT community get very frustrated when that happened we kind of. They're very selective about the folks that they choose to go out there.

You know, Cathy, what you tweet it will come back to haunt you one day, but it's people who follow Kevin Hart. No that he makes jokes about a lobby. I folks trying to come after him for making the searching comments about black women or using the N word in his pieces even for cheating on his. Right. Okay. You know? But this issue around some jokes that he made in two thousand and I guess my two thousand eleven is coming to light things that he has already addressed believe me up in the entertainment world being openly almost bake that really not today in two thousand eighteen things that he's already he's already addressed. And I got to believe that the people who chose to be the host of the Oscars, we're fully aware of MS of his routine. You know, this happened right after I don't know if you guys talked about this visit happened right after I guess this whole big flap around the song baby it's cold outside. Right. Thinking to myself again in the same context, where's the consistency? Or because we just nominated a whole bunch of songs for Grammy's that call women all kinds of, sir. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Radio. I don't think people calling radio to those artists. So I need just Americans in general. We're very all over the place with it. And we want to pick and choose what we wanna do. But at the end of the day, I need to know as a person in this country of I make a mistake, and I owned up to my mistake. Wow. On with my life. And I'm going to be allowed to have a career. And it doesn't seem like that. When it comes to the white gay community. Absolutely. The I don't even know if it's the white gay community. I'm not sure what it is idea that comic may have changed the point of view comics, give popular for a variety of different reasons. But when they're starting out some of them have to really think outside the box, you get attention and say jokes that are controversial in that ride the line, and yes, if you want to make it as a mainstream comic, then you definitely have to clean up your act, but the idea that someone can't change that their feelings can't evolve. When as you mentioned politicians somehow get a pass on it is is so close minded to me. It's the opposite of tolerance. But. What they claim to be more a. Right. So it's exactly the point some some from in your logic. Jasmine, we're talk to jazz mechanic, oh, by the way, you can follow her at at jasmine J S M Y and their desire is not to improve social Justice, their desires to act out aggression and envy, because that's all I against certain people always comes out with black people. Right. Because again, the majority of the people who are screaming and hollering about Kevin Hart aren't Kevin Hart bench because if they were Kevin Hart bats, and they had followed Kevin Hart's career would have known about this previously. What you had with international who went back and dug through all of this that all of these EBay of tweeted or posted on social media decided to make a big deal about it. Typical American fashion. Everybody jumped on the tray. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. It's like you could back in the Michael ball in my position on immigration and other issues that people would consider would consider how bundled either consider me on the right side of the walk side issue. But the stock relating that my tweets from years ago don't necessarily reflect my opinion today in two thousand eighteen should I still be vilified because of that should not be able to have a career a dear friend of mine, I say, a Washington went through this. And I went through with them when he graded out of me. Full off of that show. It is. After that. A long time to rebuild this. I've watched it happened to my friends and other people over and over when it comes to the gay community and acting out their aggression. It's always white gay, folks. And this is fresh it is always targeted towards black people who they claim to be allies up. Allies people like me who are blocking the middle looking at the white. Like, I say why gay because if you think of glad HR all the organizations beat organizations that are primarily run by white men and women. Okay. Where Jay has always been the number one issue. They have never really cared about issues that relate to people of color were also LGBT. Okay. So, you know, I'm caught in the middle because I'm like, you know, I get how homophobe has affected my brothers and sisters it'll black community. But I also understand that if we want to work with our black preachers and pastors politicians and people like Kevin Hart. Some understanding that what people row, and they learn from their mistakes that we allow Bill to do that we're talking to jazz mechanic, our number's eight hundred two two two five two two two to respond. Jasmine, I'm still a little unclear about why he stepped down if it's something that he is apologize for thousand times. Like, you said why not just a thousand and one? Why did he draw the line here? Is there something more onerous coming his way? I think I say, you know, what? Kowtowing? He's not bowing down the folks, he sterling as ground, and I can totally stand his ground is what he's already admitted his opinions Garang back then. So he's ground by saying, I'm not going to give you what you want. Which is another apology. I've already done this over and over again, I'm not gonna do it again. And for someone who's dream was the host the Oscars really big deal. And if it is, but if it leads me to believe that there's something else going on here as Dr gray said because who does that really hurt? It doesn't hurt the Oscars. They'll find another host, it just seems like if you've already admitted that this was wrong. It's not like he's not he's standing up for his comedy back in the day. He's saying, yeah, I had some that were wrong. They've already apologize. No. He is standing for himself. I think he's also steady after the people he represents as well. Who are largely supported we hear a lot about the backlash. But we're not we're not hearing about the people who made the people who made Kevin Hart were the the men and women of the Oscars work, the men and women of HR. It was the community. It was black folks. Remember, he's a black comedian. He got his start being a comedian and a lot of black sales. And then a lot of black comedy comedy clubs around the country. And so, you know, I respect his decision to not apologize. I wish that more people would do that. Because usually what we see is. There's uproar somebody writes, a check to one of the big three white gay, mafia organizations. Happy to see that that routine has been changed for that someone holding their ground. And all that what what are you going to say Sam, homophobic? So jasmine hold on. Let's get some calls in here. People are reacting. Let's go over what do you say? I think Kevin Hart. First mistake was to accept it. I think and I disagree with it. With the lady, I think Kevin Hart made Kevin Hart, not the black community. Not the way community. Not anyone else. That'd be Kevin Hart worked like a dog. And he got to where it is because of himself. But wh why why did you make a mistake to accept the job? I don't get that doesn't. He doesn't need the Oscars. The Oscars need him the Oscars suck the Oscar. Sexist bunch of people. Why why is there a best male and female category? And to your point. I mean, maybe, but but maybe Opie maybe and jasmine meek baby you address this. I mean, like you're saying we want things to change bringing somebody like Kevin Hart in maybe move things towards change. Well, I have to definitely agree with your caller, the Oscars. Do suck. And. Having a Kevin Hart would have definitely made it a lot more interesting. But again, there are very few people that you're gonna fight especially comedians who have not made colorful remarks somewhere in Germany to start. What I said I thought my God. If you give Kevin Hart is not scrubbed clean enough. Who who is? I mean, how are we going to get somebody in there? You're gonna it's gonna be like a journalist or something. That's gonna be weird. Right. It's I I don't know how this. I mean, it's not like they're. Are running for president. Being entertainer. And I think it's a controversial entertainer. And makes it all the more interesting to actually watch. They always go back to Ellen because she's never cursed Wanda Sykes or something right because she gets a lot of boxing. Can come back. We'll come back Gabriel. What are you say? Hey, so he's a comedian. Right. And I love I love Kevin Hart, funniest guy in the world. But he makes a huge part of his of his act for example about bracket. So so he talks about his uncle crackhead back in the day. Do we stop making a joke about that? It's not. It is I think people in general need to stop and realize what we laugh about may not exactly be PC are really feel or how we feel. I should say we can stop in backup in in in. You know, laugh at somebody makes a joke about, you know, the chicken crossing the road do the chicken farmers from. You know in in any of the vegan vegan vegan Scarborough. I will take you one further. I'm sure that there are some black crackheads..

"Some of them are more sexual matters. How about that? Well, so I actually got a thing with Instagram back in the day. They did me. I'm sure and I learned from that that they will keep me around. And I'm just not allowed to do splits or handstand. It's gotta be like, you're in a scenic s place nothing. I'll like it's gotta be beautiful Frank and beans must be coverage. Literally like Photoshop not in Bohol. No, no holes. Good to know. Exactly, entrepreneurs Z. I mean, do not CME a whole pick a split pit a handstand pick. Like, I gotta keep it classy. I love you. So this is so genius. I know that the older LGBT LGBTQ community men, gay men, lesbian woman. I know they look through very different time than us. I actually had a really good friend of mine who's kind of like he's like a like a Deepak Chopra of the gay community. And I'm not gonna say his name to protect his identity for this story. But he asked me to go on the channel that was the gay channel on Sirius. When I was at serious, and I was like sure so we intr- my friend introduced him to the head guys. The channel Larry flick is a guy's name, and I love Larry. But Larry like old school gay, man. He's a bear. He's been the committee forever. He lived through the aids epidemic. He watched friends die, you know. And so I remember my friend came in. And I thought it was gonna be like, all good and Copacetic. And apparently, they just went in on my friend, and they were like with a fucker you with your cheer. Enjoy. You have no idea. The path to pave the the pavement we laid for you to get here. Like, do you respect us? All I mean, personally, I get that quite often rate it, and so that's I'm now hearing your story. I'm like, okay, you're probably getting the same thing lesbian community. I'm not that entrenched in. So maybe I don't quite, you know, maybe I haven't had that reaction because I'm just not like in it that might also don't understand the lesbian community. Well, this is the funny thing I kind of understand the gay community. But like, I also don't understand the gay community. I feel like you, and I can really like teach each other things right now. But I will say that I think that there is like I think there's a generational war. Amongst like, no matter what your sexuality is. But I think there's a major one not so much the lesbian community, but really so much in the game male community, we agree. And I don't know if it's type thing, I think it's based on a lot of things that maybe are are emotional. But I think some of them are really real. I think the aids epidemic was is like have you watched a normal heart, the normal heart. I have not. But I just saw boy race if you ever seen that movie. No. So boy race is about gay conversion therapy. Oh, Oh, my. my how his family said this boy. And it's based on a true story. How the kid like moved to New York says family didn't accept him. And then like four years later, they finally accepted him once he moved away and became successful as a writer, right? But like, it's really like, a gut wrenching story. It's important for us as the new the newer versions because it is it's still a hard path walk, but it's much easier path to walk. I think it's important for us to think that though because sometimes I get confused, and like I get a lot of messages from people, and they it's really not an easier path. It's only because we live in this bubble in New York. So you think You're you're right. right. And then you're blinded from like your own does middle America. Otherwise in the world. You're right. So I sometimes always try to remember what it feels like. But you kind of forget once you're like, comfortable out, and you're like, it's harder. But you can kind of go back there. But it's hard to go back back there. You were in utter tear because that's what it feels like. But I do think it's important for us to like educate us about the gay people who came before us, and so like a on the normal heart. It's Mark Ruffalo, it's Taylor kitsch. It's map Omer. It's amazing for all..

"First of all does have a million price to be to be exact I would say three maybe four. I know there's two black price. There's the Labor Day weekend MLK weekend, which was segregating black and white prior to which is problem number one. And then we have the white pride which is the one that we just did the has the parade. The only one with the parade in every single city has is white pride. I think the reason personally is just just because I mean, Atlanta is the gay capital of the south. I mean, I feel I feel like in every way we we're just going to celebrate in party. Why we have all the government officials. I don't know. I mean because predominantly Alanna place, but it's playing that to me how to land of all the cities in the south becomes just kind of the gay capital gay mecca where everybody just kind of has to be. I couldn't go to make a major city. I mean, you're not going to make. Try to make it big and get your name out there. There's a lot of personality's coming into Atlanta to make it known who they are. And it's the Hollywood. Yes, the high. It's literally is listening to the one of the biggest cities in the south of me. You can't Miami. Miami's not as big as. Is literally this is this is the south city. But what's and that's always interesting to me. Why people think you come to Atlanta to make it? Meanwhile, most folks come here with no plan, no idea, and they end up, you know, living in swat somewhere trying to get by versus their hopes and dreams and aspirations before the LGBT guy, I'm going to summarize for all my people in the other acronyms, we're to summarize the LGBTQ was many of them. Don't leave a right there. Are we going to pass that? But so why was it land to feel like such an accepting place? Where there's not that stigma that you will get with other places in the south again. Like, I said, it's you is the biggest city by being by having so much diversity. It's just more open minded kind of places everywhere else in the south. There's literally one mind frame one coach typically wants to move to a place either you're going to have to fit in or you or you're gonna be excluded. Atlanta's one of those places where it is diverse. It's you can have your own mind. Because everybody is from everywhere is literally the melting pot of the south. Well, you know, it's interesting because a lot of people feel that the LGBTQ community hasn't surpassed the black community as far as power and political influence that you, you know, politicians have no problem tearing down a black neighborhood, or you know. Sains saying or doing things that are discriminatory derogatory towards the black community. But they would not dare transgress the gay community. Remember when they had the eagle raid, maybe a decade ago and the whole city shut down when the police officers raided the the American Eagle gay bar nightclub where wherever you call it. But meanwhile, we'll have rates like that all the time on the black side of town. And nobody says anything why what how have they been able to gain so much power influence so quickly what the thing about it is? And I hate to just strictly go with race. But if the gay community was just black. I'm sorry. Influence. You know, what I mean because we have the I'm just gonna go ahead and say Caucasian, people that are more influence in the community that that's it's more power in it. I mean, like I said back to the whole pry things black pride. There's two there's the Labor Day, and as the MLK in Atlanta, they don't get as much recognition. They don't even have a parade. They literally shut down the city for what's considered white pride. We hope parade. There's there's all these sponsored events and all this stuff is because the majority the white power is involved. So you're saying there's just as much intersectional racism in the gay community as there is in the straight community that Luli every single city every every every major city that has a pride has white pride. What's considered white pride in actually is white pride is not call white price? Just call gay pride. Then black Friday. It's called black Friday every single major city segregated still exists. One hundred percent in the gay community. Accepted. Was there anything because it seems like whenever something happens for the community black folks are expected to get online and be part of that and fight for their rights. Something happens in the black community are in the black gay community Ewing sitting on these rich white gay guys riding in and their mini Coopers to try to help us. So that was nothing done about that. Because they can get away with ignoring something like that. I mean. I think in the gay community when. The gay community gets attacked as far as blacks coming to the rescue. I mean, there are white gays as well being involved as well. So they need to speak up and something needs to be done to. But with the black community. I mean, white Nancy something I'm in the black community. You're not gonna say anything because they can get away with. I mean, honestly, A B module. Of course, they don't know the guy. He sounds a little Gabe. He straight. So for me like I mean, I'm the gay guy in the room, and I've been to a lot of different states and CDs and been involved with the gay community. And I don't see where a lot of. White people really get involved with the black gay community. I think the exact same is two different wars is the strait is the strait and black and white war. And it's still gateway like my war. And so on on that point not to dig too, deeply when it comes down to the line when it comes down to you have an issue between the black community and the gay community. Where would you find yourself form your lions came down? Like we bought the fight. We bought rumble. Yeah. Pick aside what Saudi pick picking. So this this this is my thing. And I think this is where black has always been big before the whole Black Panther movement. And and and I'm just gonna choose a black in general for me. I feel like I'm just I'm just the peacemaker. I literally choose gay as gay and black as a people obviously want. I mean, I'm on both sides. But when it came to pick one one or the other laid the rumbled by to go down picking one does not wanna because I'm both. Okay. We'll talk more about this. After break. We're gonna go to the phone lines. Call him four four eight nine two two seven zero three news and talk thirteen eighty W A. Okay. Too much too. Okay. You're listening to the best of.

"And what I noticed was in the comments all the black men. The conscious brothers. They're all saying President. Obama was the first gay president President Obama does his lookout for the gay community. None of this stuff is factual lidge just shit that insecure men, black men and white men. This is what this country based off of his not about people say that people have died over women. None other men have died over their own insecurities. The reason why people can in factually say that President Obama was the first gay president would not one bit of facts or proof Audie said, is that the fact that this guy made a statement of political statement saying that gay people should have the right to be married. Now, let's look at President Obama's history. President, Obama is a married man to a woman who has two young girls. And when he talks about his two girls, he talks about them dating. Does he ever talk about them maybe and go another woman? No, he always talks about them bringing home a young man and having secret service, maybe one day having to deal with them. Now this is a true gay president that the conscious community claims him to be. He would never specify that his daughters would bring home a man. He was specified his daughters or one day be dating, but not conscious community. The so called smart marks of the internet. They don't. They don't bother to bring in those kind of facts because all they do is unit use their own insecurities and bring up stuff that they just pull out there s and spread it over the internet. Now, not an Obama apologised, but these idiots have made me become one because they don't realize it. They're the reason why. Black people, whether you want to admit it or not. Obama is a black person. If you're truly Representative of the black community you should. You should be ashamed of yourself. For ridicule. Another black man, falsely ridicule him for no reason at all. Here's the other thing. There's not a man in America that has not at one point in his life participated in a gate act.

"So you tell me who's better for the gay community and who's better for women than Donald Trump believe me. And the reason I bring this up is because I hear all the time Republicans like Paul, Ryan and others, say things like why support LGBT rights, right? They'll they'll say it and then there's nothing in their voting record. In fact, they they actively work in the other direction, but things have changed culturally to where they clearly feel they have to give word to this lip service to it, but then they don't actually do it. So my question I guess is can you be a supporter of the gay community while constantly working against the gay community? Is that a thing. No, and it's not a thing I think was the thing is that people don't read today. They don't, you know, understand that they can actually, you know, pick up a newspaper or go in research a topic, and that's the problem with our society today as we just listen to sound bites and politicians know that you cannot today the pendulum has shifted. You cannot say that I am anti gay because it will hurt your business will hurt your chances of being reelected. Right? And that's a good thing, right? But it's a bad thing because now the the anti LGBT rhetoric and the the actions of into the closet, and people aren't either motivated or willing, or you know, at a point where you know they feel like they have the time. I'm not for sure what it is to be able to research and say, you know what? Paul Ryan, you haven't done anything for algebra people, right? You know, Donald Trump, you. You held the rainbow flag the wrong way when you held it up right? Like you, we need to hold our politicians and our leaders accountable, but in order to do that, we have to be able to find out, you know what the truth is, and I think that's the problem we're having today is, and what I'm most concerned about is, where do you find the truth? Let's I want to close us out with a question. I don't usually ask, but I think it's it's appropriate for you. You know, you've seen a lot of antagonism and you've you've overcome to make things happen in the world. We rarely address this in the show, but I would love to hear your advice on what to do when you're trying to talk to somebody and their words in their beliefs, just make your blood boil, but you're trying to have a conversation like what's your advice to people on how to do that. So I've had somebody yell, some pretty awful things that me and it does take two people to have dialogue. You can't have dialogue with somebody who doesn't want to have a conversation. So that's the first thing you know, I I have approached people and you know people who I, I know are either yelling things or saying things, and I have approached them and said, would you be open to coming over and sitting and having a conversation, right, and taking out of the context of the moment and going over and sitting and have the conversation start out by just getting to know each other, asking them about, you know, their family, their husband, or wife, or or girlfriend, or boyfriend or whoever. You know, they have, you know, a close relationship with, you know, ask them about what's going on in their life or try to get to know them as a person right before. You start to get to know them our, you know before you let the issue that is defining the moment a get, you know, in the way of of being humans. And I think if you're able to find someone's humanity and sit down and speak to them one on one and and spend some time learning about each other's humanity, then you're able to have the building blocks to have discussions that can build that integrity that trust and it may not happen in the first conversation, but.
