This week on SameSexSunday upon the launch of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Thumbnail image for Same Sex SundayForce's ground breaking joint study on the American transgender experience with The National Center for Transgender Equality, we speak with Jabriel Walthour, a transgender person of color from the South whose story helped frame the results of this study at the Creating Change conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

We also speak with the executive director of National Center for Lesbian Rights Kate Kendell about a movement in flux.

Then our round table takes on the state of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender movement, a discriminatory anti-equality marriage bill moving through the Iowa House of Representatives, the controversy revolving around fast food giant Chick-Fil-A's questionable corporate giving practices, the announcement of the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte North Carolina - the first host city in decades to lack employment non-discrimination laws for LGBT people - and finally whether or not Mark Foley may make a run for his old US House of Representatives seat.

After the jump, find out who joined us in person at the conference to be part of the round table, and listen to or download the episode.

For the first time in the show's history not only did Phil and I get to record in the same room, but we are also both joined by all of our panelists in person. Joining us this week are: Editor of Q-Notes Charlotte, Matt Comer; Director for Public Engagement at the National Black Justice Coalition, Jasper Hendricks III; Editor with, Michael Jones; and Managing Director of, Michael Rogers.
