The Models of Pride conference includes an Opening Session, 3 workshop sessions with 100+ workshops to choose from, lunch, a resource fair, a college fair, a career fair, dinner, an entertainment hour, and dance – all free! The workshops cover many areas of life that are experienced by LGBT youth transitioning to adulthood including but not limited to LGBT issues.  Happening at the same time as Models of Pride is the Parent & Professionals Institute (PPI), a mini-conference within Models of Pride that offers programming for parents of LGBTQ youth as well as professionals who work with LGBTQ youth.  We will offer workshops for Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) advisors and other LGBT youth serving professionals who bring their students/clients to the Conference.  A Hospitality Suite will be available to them during the day where they can relax, find resources and network with colleagues.

The History of Models of Pride

Models of Pride was created in 1993 by the Gay and Lesbian Education Commission of the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) as a means of providing a safe and positive environment where LGBTQ youth could network with each other and expose themselves to new ideas and information. Friends of Project 10, Inc. took over the sponsorship and major funding for this conference in 1998 when the LAUSD abolished all education commissions. For 20 years, the conference programming has included a wide variety of workshops covering such topics as dating, coming out, stereotyping, student activism, cultural and religious issues, healthcare issues, creative expression, and much more. In 2010, Friends of Project 10 Inc. invited LifeWorks, the LGBT youth mentoring and development program of the Los Angeles LGBT Center to take over as presenter of the conference.

After a successful transition in 2010, LifeWorks has grown Models of Pride from less than 500 youth in attendance to over 1000.  LifeWorks proudly continues the Models of Pride tradition that for so many years has been a life changing experience for thousands of youth.  And, as times change for the better, Models of Pride continues to adjust to meet the ever-changing needs of LGBT youth.

LGBTQ Workplace Discrimination

Fields That Still See the Most Discrimination: How Do We Bridge This Gap?

Discrimination in the workplace may be illegal, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. For the LGBTI+ community, workplace discrimination is still something that runs rampant. While some industries, areas, and companies are welcoming and accepting of the LGBTI+ community, many others still have a long way to go.

LGBTQ Workplace Discrimination

Unfortunately, many people like to believe that the United States is much more progressive than it actually is. To many, it’s impossible to believe that employers can still discriminate against the LGBTI+ community. This kind of thinking eliminates the pressure from companies unwilling to make necessary changes. Without the right education, these issues can be brushed under the rug.

Understanding workplace discrimination is the first step in making a difference. Let’s take a look at a few of the fields and industries that see the most discrimination, then consider what we can do to help eliminate this thinking and behavior.

  1. The Construction Industry

The construction industry is no stranger to diversity issues. Because the majority of construction workers are straight, white males, anyone who does not fit this mold may face discrimination while at work. This includes members of the LGBTI+ community.

While most managers will not fire an employee specifically for being gay, many LGBTI+ members may still feel that they are not safe to come out to their managers or employees. This can cause serious anxiety, forcing them to feel like they need to live a double life.

  1. The Military

With the President of the United States trying to ban transgender individuals from joining the military, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the military finds its way to this list. While the military is another area that has had diversity issues in the past, it should also be held to higher standards.

An individual’s sexual lifestyle should not influence whether or not they are fit to serve in the military. When someone is brave enough to sacrifice their lives for the safety of their country and fellow citizens, they shouldn’t fear facing discrimination.

  1. The Oil and Gas Industry

The oil and gas industry is another field that is less inclusive to the LGBTI+ community. Just like the construction industry, most employees within this field are straight, white males. For individuals in the industry outside of this group, it may be uncomfortable to come out.

Unfortunately, the LGBTI+ community is not protected nationwide in the same way other minorities are. While there are national laws that protect against discrimination for gender, race, and religion, there are only statewide laws protecting transgender and gay individuals.

How to Eliminate Workplace Discrimination for Everyone

Although there is not a law protecting all LGBTI+ individuals from workplace discrimination and harassment, no one should feel uncomfortable in their workplace. For thousands of people all over the country, their office space is a hostile environment. Not only can this cause stress for the individual, but it prevents them from living a happy, fulfilling life.

Change begins with the proper education. When people are more understanding of the daily struggles that the LGBTI+ community faces each day, they can be more open and be accepting of the changes that need to be made. When we start holding our coworkers and employers accountable for their actions, behaviors, and thoughts, we may start to see real change.

Whether or not you’re a part of the LGBTI+ community, it is your responsibility to stand up for what is right. Don’t be afraid to file complaints or speak up if you see a coworker facing discrimination or harassment because they are LGBTI+.

Hosts of Halloween 2017

Halloween New Orleans – The mission of the Hosts of Halloween is to provide funding for Project Lazarus, a home in New Orleans for men and women with AIDS, so that they may provide healthcare and support services for their residents. Project Lazarus, which provides direct AIDS services, is the sole beneficiary of all funds which are raised. New Orleans LA; Oct 21-22, 2017

Hosts of Halloween 2017

The mission of the Hosts of Halloween is to provide funding for Project Lazarus, a home in New Orleans for men and women with AIDS, so that they may provide healthcare and support services for their residents. Project Lazarus, which provides direct AIDS services, is the sole beneficiary of all funds which are raised.

In our 31 year history, we have raised almost $4.5M for Project Lazarus. We are one of the only 100% donation/volunteer event weekends left in the US.

The story of Halloween’s in New Orleans is a story of the New Orleans gay community – a community coming together to share their love and sense of family, a community celebrating its unique culture and love of showmanship, a community coming to the aid of its own in the dark days of the AIDS crisis, and a community triumphing over challenges with a resilient, joyful spirit.

 If you’re a big kid, and you like to dress up for Halloween, there is no other place to be than New Orleans!

5 Reasons Same-Sex Couples Should Consider a Prenup

The 2015 Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges legalizing gay marriage across the United States was a momentous day, correcting and acknowledging years of systemic discrimination. Rightfully so, post-ruling, there has been a rush by many to legitimize their marriage in the eyes of the state to enjoy the protections and benefits of marriage they deserve. However, it is important to keep in mind that both death and divorce do not discriminate, and certain pre-marriage administrative and protective procedures should be taken care of before the big day.

5 Reasons Same-Sex Couples Should Consider a Prenup

Financial distributions and child support issues are now very much a legal reality. In the eyes of the law, the same issues that have plagued opposite-sex couples, now affect same-sex couples. However, same-sex couples may face additional problems and considerations, with lacking judicial precedent and guidelines to advise courts on how to handle divorce. As low as 20% of same-sex couples speak with a lawyer before getting married, a troubling statistic considering the CDC places the national divorce rate at almost 50%. In order to ensure protection and certainty should something go awry, it is recommended all couples enter into a Prenuptial Agreement (Prenup) before committing to “happily ever after.”

What Is It?

A Prenuptial Agreement is a written contract drafted before marriage, outlining the rights and obligations of both parties in the case of death, separation, annulment, and the most common; divorce. The termination of a marriage is inevitable. A Prenup provides a comprehensive framework of important financial and social obligations and rights, including how assets are to be divided, the amount of alimony, and issues concerning child support.

Below are five reasons why you and your future spouse should take some time to sort out the “what ifs” and financial specifics of your relationship with a Prenup before taking the plunge.

5 Reasons Why You Should Consider a Prenup

  • A Court May Not Fully Appreciate the Length of Your Relationship

Same-sex couples that divorce or terminate their marriage after decades already together face difficulty proving the actual length of their relationship. In the eyes of the court,  and as defined by most case precedent, same-sex marriages may be interpreted and “credited” as only valid and legal from the “date the legal marriage occurs,” not cohabitation. This skews the reality of the relationship, leading to a high possibility of an unfair judicial determination or distribution. You may end up receiving lower spousal support payments than expected or deserve, or your ex-spouse may improperly receive the dog or that second three-bedroom apartment in Manhattan.

  • Spousal Sacrifices May Not Be Considered

But for the failure to legalize same-sex marriage, you and your spouse most likely would have been married. With all relationships comes sacrifice and compromise, and those should be taken into consideration. Maybe you gave up that career in BigLaw to stay at home and take care of the children, while your partner set forth on a prosperous career in pharmaceuticals. Over that time, your working partner’s earning power increased, while yours remained stagnant or declined. Maybe your significant other acquired substantial wealth and property interests in their own name, or applied for your family home’s loan under their name. Without a Prenup, your intangible contributions to the marriage may fail to be accounted for, leaving you jobless, penniless and at a significant disadvantage when embarking on a new journey.  

  • Assets Acquired Before Marriage

It’s common for couples to commingle assets before marriage, making the distribution process that much harder after termination. That checking account you opened prior to your marriage might not necessarily be considered separate by a court if you kept it open and maintained during your marriage. Both parties want to protect assets they owned before marriage, especially if it was arrived at independently. Prior to your vows, you should address who owns what, what is considered joint property, and how assets should be distributed. The following property is generally considered separate property and not converted into “marital property” upon marriage:

  1. Inheritance property
  2. Property acquired before marriage
  3. Gifts received from a third party
  4. Compensation for personal injuries sustained due to a spouse
  5. Property defined as separate property in a written agreement
  • One Spouse is Heavily in Debt

Exorbitant debt isn’t the outlier anymore, it’s the norm. It’s in your best interest to find out whether the partner of your dreams has accumulated mountains of credit card debt or student loans before the big day because it affects you. It’s better to find out now, instead of years down the road when rummaging through your closet and finding shoe boxes filled to the brim with receipts. When it comes to credit card debt, joint accounts make both parties liable for 100% of the debt, appearing on both parties’ credit reports. Divorce doesn’t completely eliminate joint debt, meaning you will still be on the hook to creditors, even if the debt was accumulated entirely by your spouse. A Prenup allows you and your spouse to address your financial future, including your investments, savings, debts, and how those debts should be paid off. Doing so can save you from financial ruin and ensure a financially stable future.

  • Taking the Finances Off the Table to Focus on the Heart

At its simplest, taking the finances and other administrative decisions off the table allows you and your spouse to focus on your relationship. Finances and the future can be high-stress topics, but when they are already taken care of, both couples can go forth with less worry and stress. Clarifying your relationship allows both partners to feel like they are on an equal playing field and “clued in.” Getting a Prenup doesn’t mean you and your spouse are any less romantic, it means you are practical and prepared.

Prenups aren’t compulsory. But, if you and your spouse-to-be have been together for more than one year, have established financial portfolios, and want to protect yourselves from potential financial uncertainty in the case of divorce, you should consider executing a Prenup today.

7 Great LGBTI+ Novels To Check Out This Year

LGBTI+ characters are headlining novels everywhere from the young adult category to science fiction. Here are some great LGBTI+ novels to crack open this year!

7 Great LGBTI+ Novels To Check Out This Year

  1. Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee

Young adult literature has frequently been mentioned as a genre that highlights the LGBTI+ experience. This book might be one of the first, though, to prominently feature a romantic asexual lead character.

In it, Tash’s web series suddenly becomes insanely popular, leaving her to deal with all of the things that come with being famous. She also starts up a flirtation with a guy that’s nominated for the same award that she is. Throughout all this, she struggles with still being closeted and how she should go about coming out to both the guy she cares about and all of her new fans.

  1. In Ageless Sleep by Arden Ellis

This sci-fi book also contains a subtle lesbian romance that builds up as the book goes along. While short, it’s a heck of a story. Mal is tasked with hijacking a cryo-ship because a king’s daughter is on board. However, a crucial component of the cryostasis system breaks — and the king’s daughter, Aurora, is the only person who can keep them alive. Mal and Aurora find themselves interacting quite often.

  1. Sappho’s Bar And Grill by Bonnie J. Morris

History professor Hannah Stern goes into her local lesbian bar — and discovers that when she makes a certain toast, she gets taken back in time to meet with the very women she teaches her classes about. Meeting with all these historical ladies helps to reignite both her love for history and her love for women.

  1. The Angel Of History by Rabih Alameddine

This book won the 2017 Lambda Literary Award for gay fiction, so it’s definitely on the must-read list. The book takes place in a single day, focusing on Jacob, a gay, Arab writer that lives in San Francisco. After having a meltdown and checking himself into a mental hospital, he revisits key points in his life — including living through the AIDS crisis in the 80s. Satan, Death and 14 saints also show up for good measure.

  1. Marriage Of A Thousand Lies by SJ Sindu

Lucky and Krishna pretend to be a happy, heterosexual married couple to appease their Sri Lankan families. However, they’re both gay and dating other people on the side. It seems to work for them, but then Lucky reconnects with her first lover who’s soon to be married off to a man in an arranged marriage. Lucky wants to save her from the marriage but also has to save herself after 10 years of living a lie.

  1. Love Interest by Cale Dietrich

A spy novel with a twist, Love Interest features Caden, considered a “Nice,” and Dylan, considered a “Bad.” They’re tasked with luring in a girl that their agency needs for an investigation — and whoever she doesn’t pick pays the ultimate price. However, they have a hard time trying to focus on winning the girl when they’d rather win over each other instead.

  1. Radio Silence by Alice Oseman

Young adult literature continues to hit it out of the park with its portrayal of LGBTI+ characters. Frances is focused on getting into a prestigious university but sparks up a friendship with Aled, the secret mastermind behind her favorite podcast. Aled also happens to be the brother of Frances’ ex-crush. However, the biggest thing in this book is the prominence of a major demisexual character.

This is just a fraction of all the great LGBTI+ literature that’s out there — but it’s definitely a good start! Curl up in a cozy spot with one of these and find your new favorite book.

Celebrating Queer Film

It was just one of those days. My laptop has been threatening to die for awhile, and today was finally the day. I’ve been working in the cloud for awhile, so this wasn’t a traumatic event — but not without its challenges.

I couldn’t remember a login to the Q – The Network and for some god forsaken reason, I chose some made up email that I never use or could remember. An hour or so later, I figured out the twisted thought process and thus the email in question to be able to finally log in.

Celebrating Queer Film

Today, I finished updating the LGBTQ Film Festival calendar through the end of the year.
