Podcast - Episode 3

The latest podcast episode of "Thoughts From A Lezzymom" is now available on iTunes. You can subscribe and listen to it here. Please use the tell your friends link in iTunes and spread the word about the show.

In this episode of the podcast we are bringing you less news because we have two great interviews for you. The first interview is with comedian Vickie Shaw. Vickie has performed in almost every state in the US and has headlined in various venues including: Michigan Womyn's Festival, National Women's Music Festival, Monterrey Beach Women's Festival; and the Dinah & Lina Shore Golf Tournament in Southern California. In this interview Vickie discusses her family and how she became a comedian. She also gives her thoughts on Proposition 8 and the debate over marriage equality. You can learn more about Vickie at her website.

There is also another great song from the Podsafe Music Network. This time we feature folk artist Amy Speace's song Not the Heartless Kind from her album Songs for Bright Street. You can learn more about Amy's music from her website.

Our second interview is with Harry Knox, Director of the Religion and Faith program at the Human Rights Campaign. Harry talks about using teachable moments to talk educate the community about LGBT issues. Also, how to not be affraid of the religious arguments people try to use.

Finally I give my thoughts on two experiences I had dealing with people telling their coming out stories. Many people shared they still struggle with an internal homophobia. The interesting thing is the contrasting story of a Junior High and High School student.
