Listen here to this week's show.

 

Up first, Queerocracy: Michael Tikili discusses the new queer group Queerocracy, "a non-normative grassroots organization working to promote social justice and fight the global AIDS crisis through direct action, advocacy, and education."

 

We also hear about Governor Cuomo's extreme budget cuts to programs for homeless queer youth, from youth advocates Carl Siciliano and Kate Barnhart.

 

Harlen Pruden also brings us the latest about a needs study of native people in NY for drug treatment and HIV services called Reclaiming our Voices: Two-spirit Health and Human Service Needs in NY State. Some findings are startling.

 

Finally, we get the latest on a range of issues having to do with fighting the occupation of Palestine, including an update on the LGBT Center controversy.
