Same Sex Sunday returns from our holiday break with an episode that you simply can not miss.Thumbnail image for Same Sex Sunday

First Phil talked with LGBT Public Policy Director of the ACLU Alaska, Shelby Carpenter and the Executive Director of the ACLU of Alaska about the potential for LGBT successes in 2011.

Chris Barron, the Chair of the Board of Directors of the conservative GOProud put his spin on 2011 now that his team is in control of the House of Represenatives. You will love the exchange between Chris Geidner and Chris Barron on this topic.

Later Meghan Stabler and I discussed witnessing the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" signing ceremony in Washington DC -- a conversation that evolved into issues the transgender community still faces with our military and the DSM.

Metro Weekly's Chris Geidner gave us an update on the Perry vs Schwarzenegger (Prop 8) trial.

During the round table our panel took over the show to have a very heated discussion about GLAAD's move to rid CNN of hateful anti-gay pundits. Chis Barron opposed the move, while Meghan Stabler and Chris Geidner strongly supported the move. You may be surprised to hear the ACLU's take on this issue. You certainly do not want to miss this incredibly fun debate.

And that's not all! You will have to tune in to find out what else we talked about.

PROGRAM NOTE: We want to acknowledge the tragedy in Arizona. At the time of recording details of the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), US District Court Judge John M Roll, and many others, were still unfolding. We chose not to discuss the tragedy on this episode because the news was still emerging from Arizona at the time of recording. Everyone at SameSexSunday wishes to express their deepest sympathies to the families of those who lost loved ones and to those whose lives will be permanently changed by the events.
