Peter Tatchell UK’s LGBTQ Icon

> November 27th, 2018 ---

Peter Tatchell, director of the Peter Tatchell Foundation talks with Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ about his 50 year LGBTQ and human rights activist career. Tatchell began campaigning for queer freedom in 1969 at age 17 inspired by the teaching of Mahatma Gandhi, Sylvia Pankurst, Martin Luther King and Malcolm X adapting their peaceful protest methods and actually inventing a few of his own. In 1971 Tatchell was a leading activist in the UK’s Gay Liberation Front and was the defeated Labour candidate in 1983 which turned out to be the most violent and homophobic British election in the last 100 years. In 1990 he helped found the queer rights group OutRage! which outed 10 Anglican bishops in 1994 accusing them of hypocrisy for publicly conspiring with the church’s homophobic stance. He went on to remove outdated UK laws against our LGBTQ community and eventually created the Peter Tatchell Foundation, an independent, non-party political organization based in the United Kingdom which promotes and protects the human rights of individuals, communities and nations in the UK and internationally in accordance with established national and international human rights law. We talked to Peter about what he hopes to accomplish with his work and his spin on our LGBTQ issues.

When asked what his personal commitment is to LGBTQ civil rights Tatchell stated, “Well I have worked through in the early days the Gay Liberation Front in the 1990’s with OutRage! the queer rights direct action group and now as director of my own small human rights foundation the Peter Tatchell Foundation which works on both LGBT+ rights but also on other human rights issues as well supporting the struggle for democracy and human rights in countries like Russia, Pakistan, Uganda and many others. It’s very interesting the way in which my work on non LGBT issues has inadvertently helped raise the profile and awareness of LGBT rights. For example I’ve done work supporting the democracy movement in Pakistan and in particular the national liberation struggle of the people of Balochistan who have been occupied by Balochistan since the late 1940’s and because I am a gay man, an openly gay man and because I support LGBT rights even without mentioning it this has created an awareness, a mind change among many people in Pakistan who previously never met an openly gay person and who you know regarded LGBT people as demons or whatever. Because I have supported their struggle it’s helped bring about change in values and attitudes a much more sympathetic attitude towards LGBT+ rights.”

Recently during the 2018 World Cup games in Moscow, Russia Tatchell was arrested and released after bravely staging a one-man protest against Putin’s failure to act against Chechnya’s torture of our LGBTQ community that brought international attention to this issue. For almost fifty years Peter Tatchell has unselfishly fought for educating, advocating and lobbying for the elimination of exclusion and discrimination on the grounds of ethnicity, race, gender, disability, religion, belief, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, economic, social, cultural or refugee status.

Joey Suarez Pop Hit ‘Dancing By Myself’

> November 19th, 2018 ---

Joey Suarez LGBTQ singer songwriter talks with Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ about his new dance hit “Dancing By Myself” that just landed at #5 and climbing on the UK Upfront Club Chart. The song remixed by chart-topping UK-based HausUnited landed just behind superstars Calvin Harris and Sam Smith. Suarez talks about the inspiration behind “Dancing by Myself” and how it is a very self-descriptive portrayal of the feeling of being alone at a club after being in an eight year relationship and content with the idea that you are now alone. He hopes the song will be inspirational to listeners who are experiencing this kind of independence for the first time. He explains that the song grows and changes a lot like our emotions do when we are heart broken. With that said he hope this song finds those who feel alone and are trying to dance away their troubles. We talked to Joey about what he hopes to accomplish with his music and his spin on our LGBTQ issues.

When asked what he hopes to accomplish with his music Suarez stated, “Honestly I believe my lifelong goal for music is to give my family something to hold on to. We are all foreigners, my parents come from different countries and so we don’t have a lot of history other than moving here. A big part of being in the music industry for me was to rewrite a lot of negative family history that brought us here and give us something to be proud of. So my main goal as a musician and my music is essentially to make all my thirteen nieces and nephews and eleven brothers and sisters to feel that have something else to be proud of other than all the negative things that exist in our world today.”

Joey Suarez is a classically-trained opera/choir singer with over ten years of classical vocal training. Suarez didn’t begin to explore pop music until he was 21 years old drawing from a wide range of musical influences including Linkin Park, Miley Cyrus and Daft Punk as he crafted a truly unique style of music. While most musicians tend to hide their sexuality at the beginning of their career for fear of rejection, Suarez consciously decided to live his life authentically as a proud gay man. His songs have generated over 200,000 streams and he is currently in the studio writing and recording more songs and creating new music projects that will be released in 2019.

Brynn Tannehill New Transgender Guide

> November 7th, 2018 ---

Brynn Tannehill talks about her new book “Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Trans (But Were Afraid to Ask)” with Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™. “Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Trans (But Were Afraid to Ask)” really does tell you everything you need to know about transgender issues and serves as a valuable reference source to debunk many of the untruths circulating about our transgender community. This book truly breaks down misconceptions about trans people across all aspects of life and provides readers with a deeper understanding of what it means to be transgender. Coming from an analytical military background Brynn approached her book like a manual or handbook for transgender people as well as for the cisgender community. Tannehill graduated from the Naval Academy and earned her Naval Aviator wings piloting SH-60B helicopters and P-3C maritime patrol aircraft during three deployments between 2000 and 2004. After serving as a campaign analyst Brynn earned a masters degree in Operations Research from the Air Force Institute of Technology. She then transferred from active duty to the Naval Reserves and began working as a senior defense research scientist in the private sector as she began her transition. We talked to Brynn about what led her to write this timely informative book and give us her spin on our LGBTQ issues especially with the Trump administration’s recent attempt to erase our trans community.

When asked about her personal commitment to LGBTQ civil rights Tannehill stated, “One thing that I wish people understood and particularly lesbian, gay and bisexual people who are cisgender is that if the transgender movement fails, if we lose our rights, if we are successfully driven out of public life through policy and legislation and impact litigation by groups like The Alliance Defending Freedom, lesbians and gays are next. If they can kick all the transgender people out of the military because they feel like it they can bring back ‘Don’t ask Don’t Tell’. If they can rule that my marriage isn’t valid they can rule that your marriage isn’t valid. If they can ban people from bathrooms because the idea of sharing a bathroom with a transgender person scares straight people guess what, during ‘Don’t ask Don’t Tell’ the primary argument was that sharing a bathroom or a shower or a locker room with a gay person scares straight people and we can go straight back that is verification to discriminate against lesbians and gays. This is a unified fight whether we like it or not. The only difference is that we will go down first because we are the primary target now and once we lose, if we lose, the same methods, tactics and impact litigation that took us down will be used to do the same thing to lesbians and gays in America. Make no mistake about it the anti LGBT hate groups haven’t forgotten about lesbians and gays. They’re just having to recognize that there is greater acceptance for lesbians and gays in our society and more protections of them and are going for the low hanging fruit first which is us.”

Brynn Tannehill is a leading trans activist and essayist and has written for The New York Times, The Huffington Post, Bilerico, Slate, Salon, USA Today, The Advocate, LGBTQ Nation and The New Civil Rights Movement. Her new book "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Trans (But Were Afraid to Ask)” is being published just in time for Transgender Awareness Week November 17th to 21st and can be preordered on Amazon.

Charlotte Robinson To Be Honored

> October 20th, 2018 ---

Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson and host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ will be honored with the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition Appreciation Award at their 21st annual fundraising event Lesbians & Friends LGBTQ Dance Party For Prevention that takes place in Brookline, Massachusetts on October 20th. In these challenging times it is important to come together with hundreds of LGBTQ individuals and allies to celebrate life and the impact MBCC has achieved toward their goal of breast cancer prevention. In this exclusive audio interview Cheryl Osimo MBCC Executive Director talks about how MBCC was founded in 1992 by a few savvy lesbian women to establish the only breast cancer non-profit working closely with a research and sister organization Silent Spring Institute to investigate preventable and environmental causes of the disease. This work is funded through annual fundraising events like the upcoming Lesbians & Friends Dance: A Party for Prevention. Since 1994 Silent Spring Institute has conducted scientifically sound and environmentally focused breast cancer prevention research. Honoree Charlotte Robinson who is a breast cancer survivor talks about how breast cancer impacted her life and inspired her to establish OUTTAKE VOICES™ the online news network that for the last ten years has broadcasted to millions globally and has provided a voice for thousands of LGBTQ organizations and allies including MBCC.

When asked about being honored this year by MBCC Robinson stated, “It means a lot to me. I was diagnosed with breast cancer 22 years ago. It changed the course of my life. One of the things that really got me through it was someone told me that the Chinese believe that ‘When disease manifests itself it’s the beginning of healing’. So I took the journey of explore what in my life I needed to change in order to get back on a healthier course. In my exploration since breast cancer does not run genetically in my family I truly believe that it may exist in the water we drink because before 1996 I never drank filtered or spring water. I have since then and I have been cancer free for the last 22 years.”

The 21st Annual Lesbians and Friends LGBTQ Dance Party For Prevention takes place on Saturday October 20th from 8P to12A at the Brookline-Boston Holiday Inn located at 1200 Beacon Street in Brookline, MA.

> September 28th, 2018 ---

Cathy Renna, managing partner at Target Cue an LGBTQ focused public relations firm talks with Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ about the 20th anniversary of Matthew Shepard’s death next month, the events she is working on nationwide to honor this sad milestone and her spin on our LGBTQ issues.

At that time Renna was the Community Relations Director at GLAAD where she played a central role in shaping the media coverage onsite of both the beating death of Matthew Shepard and the trial that followed, a tragedy that became a cultural marker for a shift in the level of media visibility of our LGBTQ issues. After leaving GLAAD Cathy has partnered with dozens of different organizations including the Matthew Shepard Foundation.

Cathy talked about events honoring this milestone including the Tectonic Theater Project celebrity reading of “The Laramie Project” that took place on Monday September 24th at 7P at the Gerald W.

HRC Demands Kavanaugh Blocked

> September 19th, 2018 ---

Chad Griffin, President of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) the largest LGBTQ civil rights advocacy group and political lobbying organization in the United States addressing why this Supreme Court nomination should be blocked. Last week Griffin stated, “Brett Kavanaugh’s refusal to answer very basic, very direct questions about the Supreme Court’s historic ruling bringing marriage equality nationwide is alarming and completely unacceptable. The Obergefell decision is settled law. If this nominee cannot so much as affirm that or the fundamental equality of LGBTQ people and our families, he should not and must not be granted a lifetime appointment to our nation’s highest court. Kavanaugh’s career has been defined by decisions that threaten LGBTQ equality, reproductive rights and access to affordable health care. And yet, there is still so much we don’t know about Kavanaugh because Senate Republican leadership is refusing to allow the public access to 97 percent of the documents from his tenure in the Bush White House. During that time, President Bush took stances opposing a federal hate crimes law and advocating for a federal ban on marriage equality. These are issues that impact millions of LGBTQ people and families across America. We deserve honesty and openness when considering a justice for the nation’s highest court. We can’t afford to have Kavanaugh confirmed to the Supreme Court, especially given the unprecedented lack of transparency surrounding his confirmation process.”

In this exclusive audio podcast Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ participated in a press conference call last month with Chad Griffin, President of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and hosted by The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights to discuss what’s at stake for LGBTQ rights in the Supreme Court vacancy and nomination process. Chad Griffin stated “For the LGBTQ community, the urgency of our fight against Kavanaugh’s nomination is not abstract. It is literally about millions of people having a right to live their lives free from discrimination and with access to affordable health care. For decades, anti-LGBTQ extremists have attempted to use our courts as an instrument of oppression against the LGBTQ community. Now, for the second time in two years, they have handpicked one of their own to sit on the nation’s highest court.”

While the Senate gets ready to vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh we will also hear from Vanita Gupta, President and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Senator Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), Rachel Tiven, CEO, Lambda Legal, Mara Keisling, Executive Director, National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) and Shannon Minter, Legal Director for the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR).

Stop Brett Kavanaugh Nomination

> September 11th, 2018 ---

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) kicks off our series of audio podcasts addressing Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and why this Supreme Court nomination should be blocked. At the Greater Boston Labor Council’s Labor Day breakfast U.S. Senators Elizabeth Warren and Edward J. Markey called on Trump to release more than 100,000 pages of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh’s records the White House is withholding as the Senate Judiciary Committee begins questioning the Supreme Court nominee today. Senator Warren stated, “After all, we have asked for the documentation, as this candidate has been part of government in the past and yet, the administration is hiding 100,000 pages of his records so that not only can the Senate not see it, the American people can’t see it. I think that’s enough to say, let’s hit the brakes on this nomination and until we get the full paperwork, nothing should go through.”

In this exclusive audio podcast Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ participated in a press conference call last month with Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and hosted by The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights to discuss what’s at stake for LGBTQ rights in the Supreme Court vacancy and nomination process. Senator Warren stated, “Brett Kavanaugh was handpicked by the anti-LGBTQ Federalist Society and Heritage Foundation. A Justice Kavanaugh would be a threat to people of color, women and the LGBTQ community. It’s time we raise our voices like never before and say no to Kavanaugh.”

Over the course of this exclusive podcast series we will also hear from Vanita Gupta, President and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, Senator Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), Rachel Tiven, CEO, Lambda Legal, Chad Griffin, President of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), Mara Keisling, Executive Director, National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) and Shannon Minter, Legal Director for the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR).

Non Binary Play Romeo/Juliet

> August 30th, 2018 ---

Director Sharone Halevy talks with Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ talks about Romeo/Juliet the daring new LGBTQ+ adaptation of the classic play Romeo and Juliet premiering Off-Broadway at Metro Baptist Church in NYC from August 24th through September 9th. The play stars Juliette Gobin and Aigner Mizzelle as the star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet who span across the LGBTQ and non-binary spectrum in this loving recalibration of Shakespeare's eternal classic. Romeo/Juliet puts front and center the pratfalls, perils, pressures, pleasures and pains of growing up into our bodies, our beliefs and our sexuality. Seen wholly through the eyes of its star-crossed lovers Romeo/Juliet whittles Shakespeare's text into a tender and tragic celebration of youth and an exploration of how we define desire in a world bound by chains of faith, family, media and privilege asking what we honor most, where we came from or who we are. The cast also features Issa Best, Jac Ford, Jessica Fraser, Walker Harrison, Chris Murray, Cashton Tate Rehklau, Nick Sanchez and Hermon Whaley. This new adaption by Hailey Bachrach and Matt Minnicino is produced by Laura Elliott, costume designer Heather Barton, lighting designer Steven Spera, set designer Jacqueline Brockel and fight director Tate Rehklau. We talked to Sharone about what she hopes to accomplish with Romeo/Juliet and as a fierce LGBTQ ally her spin on our LGBTQ issues.

When asked how she sees our LGBTQ community or any minority moving forward in this Trump administration Halevy stated, “I’ve been thinking about this a lot especially working on this play and working with actors who are on a wide spectrum inside the community and just seeing so much fear coming out right now. I think the thing that was really so amazing during the Obama administration was that there was so much more understanding coming out and they were such beautiful leaders in terms of what it was to be accepting and to look at a community as a whole and to support one another. Right now the scary thing is the Trump administration is doing the same thing but at the opposite end of the spectrum. I hope that any minority or any part of the LGBTQ community is going to really come together and I think we’re all going to go through something that’s a bit harder for a while but moving forward staying strong and making sure our allies, and if you’re an ally like me, we stand up for one another. I can only do what I’m doing right now creating theater and trying to get people to understand things and keep nudging and keep kind of tittling away at the ideas of that weird word norm.”

Sharone Halevy is an NYC based director, teacher and painter who has worked all over New York from Chekhov to developing new works. She has worked for theater companies including INTAR, Crashbox, Distilled Theater Co., WAT Project, Playwright Horizons Theater School, Exquisite Corpse Company, NYU: Atlantic Theater Company Conservatory, The York, NYMF, Musical Theater Factory, Rockwood Music Hall, Atlantic Farm Team and more. She has also assistant directed at the Roundabout Theater Company, Waterwell Inc., The Atlantic Theater Company and the Public. She currently teaches at Playwrights Horizons: NYU as well as the Professional Performing Arts High School. Romeo/Juliet will be performed at Metro Baptist Church at 410 W 40th St, New York, NY August 24th thru September 9th.

Mary Wilson “Help Is On The Way”

> August 22nd, 2018 ---

Mary Wilson Supremes legendary singer talks about Richmond Ermet Aid Foundation’s event “Help Is On The Way 24 Celebrating Music, Legends & Icons” with Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™. Ms. Wilson performed along with Debby Boone, Leanne Borghesi, Eileen Bourgade, Carole Cook, Davis Gaines, Debby Holiday, Kimberly Locke, Valerie Pettiford, Jai Rodriguez, Paula West, Top Shelf Classics, Eric Risenberg and Velena Vayn. For over twenty years the Richmond / Ermet Aid Foundation has raised millions of dollars by producing Broadway quality entertainment events and galas to advance HIV treatments and support AIDS services until there is a cure. Since 2015 REAF has expanded its fundraising focus to the Bay Area’s growing demand for two new areas by providing food for the needy and programs that support homeless, disadvantaged and disenfranchised youth. We talked to Mary about this tremendous organization and as a fierce ally her spin on our LGBTQ issues.

When asked what her personal commitment is to LGBTQ civil rights Wilson stated, “I have been involved in this fight against AIDS and HIV for years and now you know obviously it’s become something that we all are aware of. So a lot of my friends are in that community and so I want to be a part because they are my friends, my very dear friends. For me it wasn’t even a no brainer. I do it because it’s part of what I do for the people I love.”

Mary Wilson was a founding member and longest member of the legendary singing group The Supremes. Wilson remained with the group following the departures of other original members Florence Ballard in 1967 and Diana Ross in 1970 until the group disbanded in 1977. Since then she has released three solo albums, five singles and two best-selling autobiographies, “Dreamgirl: My Life As a Supreme” and “Supreme Faith: Someday We'll Be Together”. Wilson has also used her fame and flair to promote humanitarian efforts to end hunger, raise AIDS awareness and encourage world peace. The Richmond/Ermet Aid Foundation was founded by the late Barbara Richmond and Peggy Ermet in memory of their sons John Richmond and Doug Ermet who both lost their lives to AIDS. In 1995, the two women decided not to get mad but get even when they launched a musical AIDS benefit to honor their sons by raising funds for AIDS service organizations. "Help Is On The Way 24" directed by David Galligan and musical director Michael Sobie is Northern California's largest annual benefit concert benefiting HIV/AIDS and hunger programs. It's an elegant evening of wonderful music, delicious food and beverages tastings and most of all fun.
