Positively Revolting

Air date: 
Fri, 11/21/2008 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Listeners are encouraged to participate in this heart-centered discussion of anti gay/lesbian/trans

Listeners are invited to participate in a heart felt discussion about the persistent virulence of homophobia.  What's the hullabaloo about gay marriage?  What makes homophobes explode with anger when they perceive someone as gay/lesbian/bi/trans?  Why do people attack what they don't understand? How can you label the right to marry, live in peace, love whom you want, and have a job and housing as "special rights".

November 20th is Transgendered Remembrance Day--- This year marked the 10th anniversary of this day honoring and remembering people who were murdered because they were perceived as being :gender variant" that is to say, something other than a binary gender.
