I was back on the new LGBT podcast "Gay Street Beat" this week for their latest edition and wanted to share it with all of you! Be sure to download it free on iTunes or listen to it on the website and hear all the informative interviews & news.

46366.jpgThis week takes on the serious issue of LGBT youth, bullying, and media representations of young LGBTQ kids. Hollywood producer Jamie Hebert stops by to talk about his work on the new documentary, Bullied. It's part of the Southern Poverty Law Center's "Teaching Tolerance" program and is available to schools and educators nationwide. Find out more about this touching new documentary and the landmark case on which it's based!

As a great tie-in to the dangers of bullying, I chat with host Jim Ver Steeg about the Karate "Sissy" Ad, which the NY Times recently quoted my coverage of. We talk about not only the anger around the ad and the danger of such representations, but also how we managed to turn it into a teachable moment on gender identity and LGTBQ youth. You need to hear it!

Without a doubt, you'll be educated, entertained, and amused! Watch the trailer for "Bullied" after the jump!
