The National Black Justice Coalition, (NBJC), is partnering with GLAAD,, in order to conduct a series of nationwide Black LGBT media trainings. These trainings will be conducted in every corridor of the country and will provide coaching and other types of training to every day Black LGBT non-activists and gay-affirming clergy alike. The focus of the trainings is to teach individuals on how to tell their own stories and their personal truths through the media as it relates to the intersection of being both African American and LGBT.

These informative, interactive, and friendly trainings will also explore very specific Black LGBT issues and the individual strategies used in forming a media message around them. In addition, the trainings will provide a vast array of information concerning important tips, dos and donts in responding to print, television, radio, and online news media outlets concerning LGBT issues.
The NBJC-GLAAD Black LGBT media trainings are free to the general public.

PinkMafiaRadioEp55 Noahs Arc 2.3 Desperado
Darian is back from his blog to discuss “Desperado” the third episode of Noah’s Arc season two. Just when I thought they had finally let the more tiresome subplots come to a close with last weeks superb episode they rehash old drama so blatantly in this episode you will feel like you are watching a rerun. While many wonderful new ideas and characters do show up so do several issues and confilcts that are exhausted and or forced. For some insight into the music on the show and glimpses into the mind of Patrik Ian Polk check out his myspace page. Please check out the Tim Gunn on the Project Runway podcast and the Battlestar Galactica podcast for more insight on those shows.

The movie deals with the strained relationships in a southern African-American family as the son who escaped the south returns to deal with some deep family secrets. Check out for more details on the film and the festival tour. I also talk a bit about “Another Gay Movie” and “Boy Culture” plus more “Noah’s Arc” news.
