Loving Someone Gay
November 3, 2010
Hosted by Andrea Mathews
We’ve heard it again and again recently, teen suicides based on bullying, particularly the bullying of someone who is or is perceived to be gay. And then we heard Joel Burns, openly gay City Councilman from Ft. Worth, Texas, in his passionate and tearful plea to gay and lesbian teens to hold on to life—don’t let bullies drive you to suicide—because it’s going to get better. Why are these children bullied? Because we don’t know yet how to receive and accept differentness. This week, we are going to be talking with someone who has struggled with and overcome issues of differentness through his own coming out process—the first openly gay member of the American Psychological Association, and the author of the book “Loving Someone Gay,” now in its 5th Edition. Don Clark has much to say to us about this acceptance process—one that is going to be essential to our culture if we are to survive. So, don’t miss this one.
Wednesday at 1 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowement Channel
Your Authentic Self is wise, knows the highest path for your life and has never been wounded. That’s right. You have a part of you that has never been wounded. In fact, that part is the truest essence of who you are. Would you like to access it? Do you know how to use your own internal guidance system? Would you like to have peace? How about a more meaningful life? Your authenticity can give you these seemingly miraculous gifts—but you have to know how to get there. Authentic Living with Andrea Mathews will help you raise your consciousness to the level of your own I AM by interviewing some of the great spiritual experts of today. You’ll learn how to see your true self in the midst of life’s twists and turns and be challenged to think outside the box when it comes to the mysteries of life. Can you afford to miss even one of these shows? Authentic Living airs live Wednesdays at 1 PM Pacific on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel.
