OnWriting presents the fourth and final week of OnWriting Pride: a series of live-recordings of the podcast in honor of Pride Month, presented by the WGAE LGBTQ Salon. Each episode features LGBTQ+ screenwriters and the LGBTQ+ stories they tell. For the fourth and final installment in the series, OnWriting host Geri Cole speaks with Steven Canals, the co-creator and executive producer of the FX drama series POSE. After receiving an MFA in Screenwriting from UCLA, Steven Canals began his professional writing career as a research assistant at Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black's production company Hungry Jackal Productions. He then went on to serve as a staff writer on the Freeform supernatural horror series DEAD OF SUMMER while also writing the short film “Afuera.” In 2018, he started his tenure as co-creator and executive producer of POSE. POSE is a drama spotlighting the legends, icons and ferocious house mothers of New York's underground ball culture, a movement that first gained notice in the late 1980s. The series follows Blanca Rodriguez, who, after receiving an HIV positive diagnosis, is forced to confront her mortality and dedicates herself to leaving a legacy by founding her own House of Evangelista and supporting her new found-family. POSE, which recently concluded its third and final season, features the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles and the largest recurring cast of LGBTQ actors ever for a scripted series. Seasons 1 and 2 are currently streaming on Netflix, and the third season is available on FX. -- Read shownotes, transcripts, and other member interviews: www.onwriting.org/ -- Follow the Guild on social media: Twitter: @OnWritingWGAE | @WGAEast Facebook: /WGAEast Instagram: @WGAEast

By bringing complicated and charismatic characters to life—often with surprising tenderness—Williams has established himself as a gifted and versatile performer with a unique ability to mesmerize audiences with his stunning character portrayals.Williams is best known for his remarkable work on THE WIRE. The wit and humor that Williams brought to Omar, the whistle-happy, profanity-averse, drug dealer-robbing stickup man, earned him high praise and made Omar one of television's most memorable characters.Williams also co-starred in HBO's critically acclaimed series BOARDWALK EMPIRE in which he played Chalky White, a 1920's bootlegger; and the impeccably suited, veritable mayor of Atlantic City's African-American community. In 2012, BOARDWALK EMPIRE won a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.Williams received his first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor for HBO's BESSIE and subsequently received his second Emmy nomination his work in HBO's highly acclaimed limited series THE NIGHT OF.His recent projects include Ava DuVernay's Netflix miniseries WHEN THEY SEE US, which tells the heartbreaking story of the Central Park Five and which garnered Michael his third Emmy nomination as an actor.

Kent Ian Paterson a producer at KUNM-FM in Albuquerque, New Mexico talks to Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ about her early years as a Progressive Rock DJ that kicked off her broadcasting career. Paterson contacted Robinson in August about a history he was compiling at KUNM to celebrate the station’s 54th anniversary. Once it was confirmed she was the same person that worked at KUNM back in the early 1970s the conversations began. When asked how she originally came to the University of New Mexico in 1969 and became involved with KUNM Robinson stated, “I went to UNM because they listed available courses in Radio & TV but when I got there I found out that those classes wouldn’t be offered for a few years. So I answered an ad on KUNM-FM looking for 'chicks to sharpen pencils'. When I applied they suggested I get my FCC license so I did. When I returned with my license they gave me a weekly shift on Thursdays from 1A to 3A. At the time UNM women had a 12 Midnight curfew and men did not. So the ACLU got involved and the curfew was lifted. I guess that was my first experience in the fight for equality.” It was the beginning of the Women’s Movement who adopted Charlotte as a role model because of the ACLU curfew resolve. Paterson added, “You and the other women who were at KUNM 50 years ago were trailblazers. Women became much more prominent at KUNM after the mid 1970s. The station's first female manager served from 1974 to 1976.” We then talked about how Robinson’s KUNM experience led her to her stellar career in broadcasting breaking the glass ceiling for women at WCVB-TV in Boston and then on to ABC, NBC and CBS TV Networks in New York, NY.  Charlotte Robinson launched OUTTAKE MEDIA LLC in 2007 and OUTTAKE VOICES™ in 2008 with over 500 podcast episodes that include Alan Ball, Ricky Martin, Senator Tammy Baldwin, Rep Barney Frank, Kyra Sedgwick, Kathleen Turner, John Waters, Dustin Lance Black, Tab Hunter, Sharon Gless, Loni Anderson and comedian Margaret Cho to name a few. Ms. Robinson was honored by the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition with the 2018-2019 MBCC Appreciation Award for providing a voice for hundreds of LGBTQ+ organizations and allies including MBCC. Currently Charlotte has partnered with Nicole Conn Films Global and serves on the Board of Women in Film and Video New England. Kent Ian Paterson is an independent journalist who covers issues in the U.S./Mexico border region. He was a 2017 fellow in the Journalist in Aging Fellowship Program sponsored by the Gerontological Society of America and New America Media.

IVF practices and approaches differ around the world, increasingly as I work with clients from different parts of the globe, this is becoming more evident. It was a great pleasure to chat with Dr Shahin Ghadir, founding partner of Southern California Reproductive Center. Dr. Ghadir is double board-certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. He is currently an assistant clinical professor Dr. Shahin Ghadir is a compassionate and caring physician who dedicates his career to helping people overcome their reproductive challenges and infertility issues to achieve their goals of having the family of their dreams, for both traditional families and the LGBTQ community. He is currently positioned as a top physician for egg freezing, sought out by women all over the world for his skill set in this highly coveted procedure. Dr Ghadir is native Angeleno, his clinic based in Beverly Hills. Dr. Ghadir is continuously voted as one of the “Top Doctors” in the USA by Los Angeles Magazine’s national poll and Super Doctors of Southern California. We chatted about the difference in funding between here and the USA, and during the course of the interview, I am yet again reminded that our approach to IVF in the UK, could be better, although acknowledging that this is hugely impacted by cost and funding. Dr Ghadir discussed the success rates at the Southern California Reproductive Center, Higher than the average in the US and much much much higher than those in the UK, for both pregnancy and live births, and the main reason for this her explained was.the use of Pre Implantation Genetic Testing (PIGT) of Embryos. We discussed egg quality, sperm quality and it was great to hear him acknowledge how lucky we are in London to have access to Dr Sheryl Homer, leading Androloigist and developer of the Sperm Comet Test, used (not widely enough in my opinion) to detect sperm DNA damage.  I discussed this in more detail with Barbara Scott in episode 14 of the podcast. Others areas discussed were Surrogacy, which you may recall I discussed recently relating to Hawaii in Episode 35. We discussed what an incredible 'voice' Dustin Lance Black and Tom Daley have been regarding their surrogacy experience, and How Dr Ghadir worked with them. We discussed Egg Freezing, age at conception for both men and women, How he has helped single women and single men and LBGTQ and heterosexual couples become parents and his view on pre conceptual care. Dr Ghadir also has an undergraduate degree in psychology which I'm sure if you've listened to me before was great to hear and find out more about.  He gave some examples of outcomes of treatment based on mindset. What was interesting is how many people travel from not just the USA but worldwide to access treatment with him, and based on the results, it's clear to understand why. If you want to find out more about Dr Ghadir, his work and what is happening at the SCRC you can follow him on instagram @drshahinghadir  and the YouTube Channel Fertility Talk PIGT is not widely available in the UK, not unless there has been specific cause for its use and is available in only a few centres.  The implications of DNA fragmentation is huge, over looked in my opinion in relation to fertility and miscarriage in terms of the education we receive in the UK. PIGT is not generally available and as ever it brings me back to the root cause and education about what steps we can take, especially with regard to male factors, which in some cases we can address.

The journey of coming out has long been a rite of passage for LGBTQ+ people. For some, it’s an empowering opportunity to be true to oneself, friends and family. It also has a social purpose. With increased visibility of LGBTQ+ people, the argument goes, comes greater social acceptance. Coming out stories also help bind the community together. But some LGBTQ+ people are choosing alternatives to the public coming out announcement. They argue that a romanticisation of coming out within the LGBTQ+ community puts pressure on those for whom coming out remains difficult or even dangerous. Others question whether coming out publicly as LGBTQ+ is even necessary anymore. Dustin Lance Black, the screenwriter of Milk, charts the history of coming out as LGBTQ+, from the early gay demonstrations of the 60s and 70s to the watershed coming out moments of celebrities including Sir Ian McKellen, Ellen DeGeneres, and Caitlyn Jenner. Dustin also hears from a younger generation of LGBTQ+ people, to find out how social media has altered what it means to come out about their sexual orientation or gender identity. And he asks whether there will ever come a time when LGBTQ+ people no longer need to come out.

Happy Hour #82: Verbatim Podcasting - ‘London Road’ Support the Show ➤ It’s time to try things a little bit differently as we delve into the uncharted territories of verbatim musical theatre and the fascinating British creation, ‘London Road.’ Charting a community’s rebirth after a serial killer ravaged their town, this show discusses the issues of policing, press, sex work and community spirit using the words of those who actually experienced it. Jimi and Tommy discuss the curious origins of a show like this, how international audiences might view the show differently and ponder if this is one of the rare instances where the film is better than the original production. London Road (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) Amazon / iTunes / Spotify SHOW NOTES If this is your first encounter of ‘London Road’ then you should DEFINITELY watch the film, and if you love it then read the play and listen to the cast recording! Verbatim theatre is a fascinating world. If it’s something you want to learn more about then check out this great book featuring case studies with ‘London Road.’ As a contemporary example of ‘documentary theatre’ check out Dustin Lance Black’s ‘8’, a powerful account of the case filed by the American Foundation for Equal Rights in court in 2010 to overturn Prop 8. Everyone in the UK knows about it, but it may seem alien to those of you who live elsewhere; I present to you: Gogglebox. Verbatim scoring is everywhere! Check out Charles Cornell and the Gregory Brothers for some online examples! They’re right, Katie Couric does sound better autotuned. If you didn’t jump aboard the hype train, now is definitely the time to check out ‘S-Town’ from This American Life. It’s a beautifully tragic story that we feel everyone should listen to! There are loads of great interviews with Alecky blythe talking about ‘London Road.’ But here’s one where she is talking about her play ‘The Girlfriend Experience’ that we discussed in the episode.

Growing up, Dustin Lance Black didn't think he'd be able to open up about his sexuality to his loved ones. His family was conservative – and Mormon. But when he was a teenager, a speech by the openly gay politician Harvey Milk allowed him to imagine a very different life for himself. Lance never forgot that speech, and years later, when he became a screenwriter, he decided to make a film about Milk. Lance went on to win an Oscar for that film. He told Outlook’s Emily Webb that a lot of his success is down to his mum. (Photo: Anne and Dustin. Credit: Dustin Lance Black)

Dustin Lance Black is my guest today! Lance has been named as one of the 50 most powerful LGBTQ+ people in America for the last decade. He is an Academy Award® winning filmmaker, writer, and social activist. He won the Oscar and two WGA Awards for his screenplay MILK, the biopic of activist Harvey Milk starring Sean Penn. He was also a founding board member of the American Foundation for Equal Rights, which successfully led the federal cases for marriage equality in California and Virginia. Lance's memoir MAMA’S BOY is out now, an absolutely incredible book, aboutgrowing up in a conservative Mormon household outside San Antonio, Texas. The book is about his relationship with his mother, Anne, who sadly contracted polio when she was two years old and endured many surgeries throughout her life. Lance came out to his mother at twenty-one, and Mama's Boy explores what it took to remain a family despite such division of belief. Mama's Boy is the story of building bridges, of family, foundations, turmoil, tragedy, elation, and love. It is a story needed now more than ever. There is so much more I could say about Lance, but most of all, he was so lovely, and warm and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting him and going to his home in London to record.

Tom Daley started diving aged seven and by the age of 14 was representing Great Britain at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. He has won six British Championships, three European Championships and won the World Championships in 2009 and 2017. Born in Plymouth in 1994, he’s the oldest son of Rob and Debbie Daley. He has two younger brothers. His success at a very young age led to widespread media attention, but as he became famous, he was bullied and had to change schools at the age of 15. His parents encouraged his sporting ambitions and he was always able to spot his father in the crowd at competitions because he’d be waving a huge union jack. In 2006 Rob was diagnosed with brain cancer and despite initially successful treatment, the cancer returned. He died in 2011, missing the London 2012 Olympics, where Tom won a bronze medal in the individual 10m platform event. In 2013 Tom met Dustin Lance Black and they married in 2017.

It seemed too improbable to be true: the lawyers who fought Bush v. Gore teaming up to fight Prop 8. And if that wasn’t strange enough, the company they were keeping was absolutely insane: lefty activist Rob Reiner; Bush Campaign Manager Ken Mehlman; screenwriter Dustin Lance Black. Orchestrating this strange alliance was Chad Griffin, who was until recently an outsider to marriage equality. He’d been brought in to advise the Prop 8 campaign, and the cause had become his passion. Now, the political operative turned his attention to the freedom to marry, and he had a daring new strategy. It was so daring, in fact, that the conventional wisdom at the time was that it was a terrible idea. Longtime leaders let him know in no uncertain terms that his federal lawsuit could do far more harm than good, and that there was little trust for his conservative allies. Their objections were completely reasonable, given that they’d weathered painful setbacks in the fight, from the destruction of relationships to legal roadblocks to the death of loved ones in the midst of battle. This new strategy was wrong, they explained, and so were the people behind it. The whole thing broke all the rules. But Chad was convinced that breaking the rules was the only way to win.

In the latest episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race, the reality TV show created to produce the next drag superstar, one of the contestants, Ongina, tearfully revealed she was HIV positive.Today we’re talking to Ongina, also known as Ryan Palao, about what it was like to boldly share this intimate detail with millions of viewers and how it’s affected his life.Ongina also clarifies some common misconceptions people have about drag queens, gay men and Filipinos and brings some sass and class into our discussion on how costumes help us be the people we want to be.Ongina shares with us her behind-the-scenes insight into whether Rebbecca Glasscock was trying to manipulate the outcome of the challenge in her favor by having an emotional breakdown which forced the judges to keep her on the show and get rid of Chicago’s gal, Jade.How could the show kick someone off after they cried about having a friend with AIDS without appearing to be heartless jerks?One thing’s for sure, after winning half of the challenges on the show so far, Ongina is the girl to lick!Ongina Ongina Ongina OnginaI’ve asked several drag queens why they didn’t try to be on the Drag Race, since obviously it would have been great publicity and opened a lot of doors. They said they feared that drag queens would be negatively represented on the show and decided to steer clear of it.It doesn’t make any sense to me. If RuPaul told me to jump on an airplane, fly to Los Angeles and walk the runway in drag, I’d do it in second. And so should you.What makes these types of TV shows so fascinating to watch is how they illustrate the obstacles we all place in front of ourselves because we fear being rejected. We put those roadblocks in our way because we’re afraid to look at where we’ve failed. We feel that we aren’t good enough.What’s probably the most uncomfortable for the contestants is how the program asks them to take the wig and makeup off, and look in a mirror. The show asks us to embrace our strength and our flaws. In that sense, RuPaul’s Drag Race and the contestants are all winners. Listen as we also talk about Ioana Cioanac, the 71 year old Romanian woman who’s knitted an entire wardrobe out of her own hair.
