This week on Street Beat, gay marriage has been a topic of debate in courts and on the news lately. The ban has been struck down and reinstated – all within a couple of days. Host Jill Washburn talks about some of the issues with Curtis Lipscomb and Alvina Bursey who served on the Unity Michigan Collation board.
Then Rhiannon Chester, Program Coordinator at KICK, and David Nelson Jr., Executive Assistant at KICK (The Agency for Lesbian Gay Bi and Transgender African American) talk about programs that assist members of the community.
Next, Professor Lee Meadows of Walsh College explains how race and gender discrimination in the workplace happens often but it tends to go unreported. More info on this topic here.
Finally, we change gears to learn about “Stomping Out,” a Youth Health Fair and Step Show that creates H-I-V and health awareness to youth from one of the organizers of the event, Dr. Cynthera McNeill of Wayne State University.
