Honored to have The White House's Aditi Hardikar join The Pride Network's Reality Check series tomorrow night! #LGBT   #LGBTQ  
 
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.

A few weeks ago I had an accident. An accident most humans have; I broke something really nice. It was a sunny day and I was bike riding along the Jersey Shore with my Google Glass upon my face. I overestimated my skills on a bike and I dropped my Google Glass in the street, in front of a car, moving quickly behind me, really quickly. Glass got ran over, badly. 

At first I was in shock. What are the chances of me dropping Glass, and it happen to hit the little space on the ground tires actually touch? High apparently.

I barely slept. The next morning, I took pictures of Glass and emailed them to the Glass Support team. I had no other option and no idea what the outcome would be. They immediately responded asking me a few question. I replied. They emailed back asking a few more questions. I was sure they wouldn't be able to do anything since it was clearly my stupid fault. Suddenly, I got an email saying they'll replace Glass. My heart skipped a beat.

Not only would they replace my broken, unusable Glass. They wanted to throw in a free frame as well. How nice.

I got my new Glass in the mail less than a week from the day I emailed them. The Glass Support team was incredibly friendly and all the exchange took place over email. Every single company should look to see how Google handles customer service. I've had an amazing experience. 

Thank you!

I really hope this is in the next Nexus phone.
Google’s Project Tango is amazing, but it’s taking its sweet time making it to market. This crazy alien head of a camera could change all that. Qualcomm and Google just teamed up to shrink it down to a size suitable for your pocket.

Fundraising has never been an easy task, until now. A Spinning Designs wheel has become an essential to every fundraiser The Pride Network organizes. As a non-profit organization we survive on the donations that we bring in from festivals, fundraisers, and small events. Having a quality, professional looking wheel from Spinning Designs will help any non-profit organization increase the amount of money they're bringing in. It's worth the investment. Our organization now brings in 200% more than we had before since using a Spinning Design wheel.
