The Pride Network

Shared publicly  - 
 
Join The Pride Network as we host a panel of LGBT activists from across the movement to engage with Aditi Hardikar, LGBT Liason & Associate Director of the Office of Public Engagement at The White House. 

"More than Marriage: Federal Law & LGBTQ Survival."
While the federal government under the Obama administration has made vocal their support for the nation's swing towards acceptance of same-sex marriage, activists on the ground know that more pressing issues continue to face Queer, Trans, and gender non-conforming peoples. As marriage equality spreads across the nation, LGBTQ people, especially Queer & Trans people of color, remain largely under-employed, under-housed and impacted by discriminatory practices from the streets to the workplace, from HIV criminalization to voter ID laws. Trans women of color continue to be on the receiving end of brutal attacks and institutionalized violence. Mass incarceration continues to wreak havoc on the lives of Blacks and Latinos. Undocumented immigrants, especially trans women, remain vulnerable to sexual abuse in detention.

Panel:
Moderator: Jonathan Jacob Moore (Jon Jon) is a Queer Black & Chicano writer, brother, and scholar-activist from Detroit. At Tufts University, he's a second-year American Studies student focused on race and media as well as President of the Spoken Word Alliance at Tufts and Co-Leader of LOQSOCA (Loving Ourselves as Queer Students of Color and Allies). ​Jon Jon is currently a Gerald Gill Fellow at the Center for the Study of Race and Democracy and a research fellow at the Harvard Hutchins Center for African/African-American Research. An avid writer, ​and ​radical media lover​ ​he's excited to return and share his interest in utilizing new media to explore the frontiers of militant honesty, compassion, and love through storytelling and community building​. ​

Julián Cancino is a Boston-based educator and advocate. He is the cofounder of the only national LGBT Latino organization in the US, FAMILIA: Trans Queer Liberation Movement, where his projects include developing ​curricula for ​family acceptance trainings ​and ​ending the immigration detention of transgender people. A first generation student, he is a UC Berkeley graduate. Julián is a proud transgender immigrant from Chiapas, Mexico.

Brianna Suslovic is a queer woman of color from Syracuse, NY. She is entering her fourth year at Harvard, and she is writing a thesis on stigma in the lives of reproductive justice advocates. She studies anthropology and women/gender/sexuality, and she hopes to put her degree to use by advocating for adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights after graduating.

Reni Calister, currently at HBO Documentary Films, graduated from Barnard College in 2011 as an Athena Scholar. She is a Goldman Sachs Global Leader, and as part of her Senior thesis, she created a Leadership workshop for young women which she later brought to the African Leadership Academy in South Africa. Reni is a Board Member of The Pride Network, a Junior Board Member of the Bowery Residents Committee, and a guest contributor to Refinery29.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by The Pride Network. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Kordale & Kaleb: Gay Dads
"Last year, we were surprised when a picture of us doing our daughters’ hair went viral. To us, that’s just part of our morning routine. With our images, we want to share our family’s life — and maybe reveal how much our family is like yours."   #GayDads   #LGBT   #Gay   #Black   #Father

An injustice the LGB community needs to know about.
I am ashamed of lesbian, gay, and bisexual people right now. We've had a great tragedy in our community, and few of us have reacted with even an ounce of the effort we have put into the fight for marriage equality.

I agree with the article with one exception, it isn't just the responsibility of the LGB community but all of our responsibility to not let these injustices continue!
