    As our world struggles to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, the AIDS pandemic continues without a cure.  December 1st is World AIDS Day and this month we talk with staff leaders at Face to Face to learn the latest about HIV prevention and treatment.  We will also hear how those living with HIV here locally are fairing against the threat of CV-19.

    December 1st is also Matthew Shepard’s birthday. A remembrance service was held at the National Cathedral in Washington D.C., where Matthew was finally laid to rest two years ago.  We share the homily from gay Bishop Gene Robinson.

    Show Notes – Nov. 22, 2020

    Last week the F.B.I. released the statistics for reported hate crimes in 2019.  It’s not surprising that the numbers have increased including an 18% increase in hate crimes targeting transgender people.  Forbes magazine also reported this month that the total number of transgender people murdered so far in 2019 has already exceeded the total number reported in 2018.  Transgender women of color continue to be victimized at an alarming rate.

    This month we spoke with three transgender people who are also part of law enforcement. They shared with us their perspective on the hate crime numbers and talked about a new effort to help law enforcement with “cold” cases involving the murder of transgender people.  All three are part of an organization known as TCOPS – Transgender Community of Police and Sheriffs.

    Show Notes – Oct. 25, 2020

    October is LGBTQ history month and the time each year when we remember the significant events that have shaped our lives and experience.  October 11 was National Coming Out Day and while you may wonder if people still today struggle with coming out, please know they do.  LGBTQ people young and old continue to face great adversity and this is only made worse when elected leaders disparage, demean, and attack LGBTQ people and our rights. This is also the month when we remember all of those members of our community who have lost their life to hate.  Just last week on the Outbeat News segment we reported that the number of transgender people, particularly transgender women of color, killed this year has already passed last year’s total.

    Typically our October show remembers and honors another and iconic victim of hate, Matthew Shepard.  And once again tonight we are going to share with you highlights from this year’s Matthew Shepard Foundation gala – the annual event that both remembers Matthew Shepard and also one that celebrates the change his story has brought to the world.  Tonight’s show features words from Judy Shepard, actress Lilly Tomlin, and more.  We’ll also talk about the state of hate crimes in the United States with Matthew Shepard Foundation executive vice-president, Jason Marsden.

    This month we continued our two-part series looking at discrimination and racism in law enforcement.  Our guest is Dale Peters, producer and host of “Black In Blue” – an online show about people of color who work in law enforcement.  As an African American man working in law enforcement in Southern California, he has experienced first hand discrimination from within.  We will talk with Dale about his experience and what he has seen with LGBTQ+ officers as a straight member of law enforcement.

    Show Notes – August 23, 2020

    While the nation is calling for police reform, many public safety agencies are struggling with not only public outcry, but how to deal with the CV-19 health emergency, recruitment and mental health.  For LGBTQ+ members of police and fire agencies, these issues can be overwhelming. This month we start a two-part series first with Julie Callahan, founder of the Transgender Community Of Police and Sheriffs, and Ed Senatore, founder of the International EMS and Firefighters Pride Alliance.  They will be talking about how things have changed since starting in 1978 as members of the LGBTQ community in public safety.  Next month, we talk with Dale Peters about being African American and in law enforcement.  We’ll share perspectives and news about some of the police reform legislation pending in California.
