In this episode of my podcast, I share the second part of my conversation with my friend Jenelle, a transgender woman who speaks about being herself, being a member of the LGBTQ+ community, and the political climate in Florida.
In this episode, I talk with my friend Jenelle about being a young transgender adolescent in South Beach, Miami Beach. She talks about the people who mentored her, including the famous Queen of South Beach, Henrietta Robinson. If you are interested in the kids who changed their yearbook we refer to, click here. Here is more information about the Federalist Society.
In this podcast, we go back a bit in time. Hear Peregrine Hayward when she was a senior at Satellite High School in 2017, as one of the panel members of Space Coast Progressive Alliance’s Pride and Prejudice in Brevard panel discussion.
Here’s some of what I found in the news in the past week concerning LGBTQ youth. A photographer highlighting trans kids and their supportive families – a pamplet for talking with your kids about gender identity – and why it’s illegal for schools to remove books solely due to LGBTQ content.
In this podcast, I continue talking with GSA sponsor Chantelle Hansen about being an ally to LGBTQ+ students, about transgender advocacy, and about how we need to always be aware that not everyone has the privilege that we are afforded as straight, cis-gender white women.
In this podcast, I cover a rally – a Pride rally, and there is *no* rally as much fun as a pride rally. I start by doing a few interviews with rally attendees as we wait for the rally to begin. Then I cover the various rally speakers – we have local LGBTQ+ activists, a LGBTQ+ student activist – Sebastian Cook, representatives from Equality Florida, PFLAG Melbourne, Space Coast Pride, Spektrum Health, and Families for Safe Schools.
On May 1, 2022, multiple groups in Brevard County, Florida came together to celebrate our LGBTQ+ youth and community. The #brevardsaygay rally and march, held at the Front Street Park off of the 192 causeway, gathered hundreds of LGBTQ+ families and supporters.
In this podcast I explore what rights students and parents have in school, and why the Don’t Say Gay law is not actually about parents’ rights to protect their children, but rather is their attempt to erase discussion of LGBTQ families, history, and risk factors (such as bullying).
