From Redneck to Rainbow: The Rights & Freedoms of LGBTQ+ Youth Part Two, Episode #47



Should schools be able to tell parents if their child identifies in the LGBTQ spectrum? How do we project youth who are in family that would not accept who they are and cast them out onto the streets?

Not long after the amendment of the bill  the Minister of Education rolled out the The Guidelines for best practices: Creating learning environments that respect diverse sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions. The province told schools they had to submit a plan of how they would implement these guidelines into their schools. This was met with huge resistance from parents, community members and schools who felt their rights were being compromised.

 


“Her Brothers” Strive to Reshape “Her” Normal. Men & Boys Inspiring Men & Boys to End Violence Against Women.



When I heard the band, “Her Brothers” play at the Mighty Peace Day Concert they took my breath away. These three young men were using their creative talent in music to help inspire and influence others to be a part of reshaping what “normal” looks like in the lives of women. Band member Gabe Penner and I discuss safe language, bystander awareness, sex trafficking, changing our dialogue and supporting each other as human beings.

Learning to shovel the shift: Psychic Medium Tricia Carr shares her story of how she embraced her new life as a sensitive



There are a lot of terms we use in the spiritual community that explain our various stages of growth and development. One of those terms is experiencing a “shift.” These shifts come to us continually as life lessons where something within us changes and we often have a shift in consciousness. Instead of saying that “shit happens” we joke amongst each other that “shift happened,” because truthfully the emotions attached to these expressions often feel one in the same.

What do you do when you are faced with a life challenge that you don’t understand and has all of the characteristics of adversity? How do you learn from it? If you lean into the adversity how does it change your outlook? How do we become experts in shovelling the shift?

I met Benzi, the dwarf horse, during my first week of my new position. He was stubborn (like me) and refused to let me lead him around the field. I couldn’t help but laugh that out of all the horses I could have chosen, I chose him. What a reflection of my life! How do horses mirror our leadership styles? How do they help us feel connected and heal? Check out this intriguing podcast with Troy & Tamara who use horses as a way for people reconnect to their strengths, and in my case, laugh at their weaknesses.
