“Supporting Black LGBTQ Students in our Schools”

SCHOOL HAS NOW OFFICIALLY OPENED FOR MILLIONS OF CHILDREN. Nearly nine out of 10 LGBT students (86.2 percent) experience harassment at school because of their sexual orientation, and 60.8 percent feel unsafe, according to the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network’s (GLSEN) 2007 National School Climate Survey. The 2015 National School Climate Survey will come out in fall of 2016 as noted on the GLSEN website. These numbers are alarming but what is on the horizon is more alarming in a good way. California and Georgia have open schools that are geared toward the LGBTQ student offering LGBTQ students a safe, supportive environment -- one they can choose or decline -- can save lives and be an important ingredient in an overall recipe for positive change for all youth, including and especially LGBTQ youth and their allies.” More importantly is that in October 2016, the LGBTQ Community Initiative at Teach for America will celebrate two years.

LGBTQ/Suicide, Mental Illness/Suicide, Bullying/ Suicide…..Families/Friends Dest

School starts soon and for many it will be a new experience with a group of classmates they have never met and they know nothing about. For those returning to school there is the in crowd, the jocks, the brainy students and the TARGETS, and not just the new kids in schools but “friends”, “neighbors” or just the “outsiders”. Middle school and High school are supposed to be the best years of your life. Its where you meet those lifelong friends, be popular, play sports, become a good debater, take up politics, find puppy love, go to Prom and graduate- beginning life. Hundreds of students will begin school and many of those who accept and begin living their truth as LGBTQ, or is diagnosed with bi-polar or a mental disease will become those TARGETS and will commit Suicide. ALERT: There is a NEW BULLY in town and it is called Social Media better known as Face Book. It becomes the hidden fist that strikes you, the vicious words (gay, trans, bi-polar) that degrades you, the gun that s...

Behind the Orlando Shootings! How have You Changed?

Do you remember what you thought, how you felt or what you were doing when you heard that 49 people who were out enjoying the evening had been shot and killed in an Orlando Nightclub? Now the same question, when it was announced the club was a gay club? Did this horrible event impact you in such a way that you needed to talk to a friend, family, vent on FaceBook, or just join in one of the vigils for the victims no matter what city, town or state you were in? The most important question is going to be now, “How did this change your life”? Believe me it has, whether you want to believe it did or not. We are all changed even if you are not gay. Joining Can We Talk for REAL cohosts Teresa (TerryBoi) Jackson and Michelle E. Brown on Wednesday June 22, 2016 is Claudia Mosier, Psy.D. a licensed clinical psychologist in Chicago.
