This week on your SameSexSunday, Stuart Biegel stops by to discuss protecting LGBT youth from bullying and his book, the Right to be Out. We are also joined by Bernard Cherkasov, the CEO of Equality Illinois, as he launches their new 'get out the vote' effort: VoteNakedIllinois!
Our weekly politics round table will have you questioning everything you know about this year's election. First, Bilerico Editorial Advisory Board member Michael Crawford; Michigan Messenger reporter and Change.org contributor, Todd Heywood; Washington Blade reporter Chris Johnson; and National LGBT activist and leader, Meghan Stabler discussed what can be done about stemming the rising tide of tragic LGBT teen suicide. Next we tackled HIV criminalization law and alarming new numbers from the CDC about HIV infection rates.
Later we chat about what the LGBT agenda will look like under a GOP led Congress, the possibility of seeing same-sex bi-national couples reunited this year, and--now that Rahm Emanuel is stepping down--will the White House play nicer with the LGBT community under a new Chief of Staff?
Wait until you hear what our panelists are saying. Listen after the jump--but be sure to subscribe on iTunes as well!
