(159) Kathy Ireland Contributes $100,000 World AIDS Day Gift To The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation Announces Level Brands Inc.

IRELAND STATES GESTURE SEEKS TO "CONTINUE THE ARDOR WITH WHICH A GREAT ACTRESS AND HUMANITARIAN LED THE FIGHT AGAINST THIS STILL-DEADLY DISEASE"

To call attention to the continuing urgency of the battle to address and conquer HIV/AIDS, Level Brands, Inc. has announced that its Chairman Emeritus and Chief Brand Strategist, Kathy Ireland--also chair of kathy ireland Worldwide (kiWW)--has made a 2017 World AIDS Day contribution of $100,000 to The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (ETAF). "This funding is a clarion call to the fact that the battle to treat, provide care and to accelerate a cure for HIV/AIDS is far from over and that complacency is the chief obstacle to securing victory," was noted in a joint statement from Jon Carrasco and Stephen Roseberry, Global Creative Director and President, respectively, of Level Brands' companies EE1, I'M1, kathy ireland Health and Wellness as well as kiWW.

Kathy Ireland remarked that the gift "celebrates my dear late friend and mentor, Dame Elizabeth Taylor and her inspiring and unrelenting philanthropy through which she personally willed and powered the global war on HIV/AIDS. Elizabeth still holds those living with HIV/AIDS and those in danger of contracting AIDS under the shelter of her loving wings, assuring that every dollar of donation to ETAF goes directly to care and prevention. Her passionate activism to end HIV/AIDS reigns as one of her most notable and lasting legacies, a fight continued today through The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation. The organization's ability to give back relies on this great lady's gracious contributions during her lifetime, including arranging for the foundation to continue in perpetuity to have all operating costs paid for by her Trust. Much of Dame Elizabeth's on-going support derives from the sustaining popularity of her iconic White Diamonds perfume fragrance, the only diamonds that saved and continues to save lives."

Ms. Ireland, a world-renowned entrepreneur like her legendary mentor, emphasizes that "World AIDS Day is an important reminder of Elizabeth's demand that we achieve an AIDS free generation. Under Elizabeth's guidance, great strides were made, but the war has not been won. We have not made that happen yet, for the millennial generation, but we must make it happen for the children whose names we know, including: Ezra, Madilynn-Rose, Vivienne and those people we do not know. We constantly meet people of all ages committed to the compassionate dedication Elizabeth lived. That is the amazing legacy Elizabeth left for the world."

"Elizabeth Taylor's passionate activism to end HIV/AIDS and funding that effort, even beyond her passing, reigns as one the most notable and lasting legacies of all time," added Carrasco and Roseberry, each of whom were active participants in the great star's professional activities and philanthropies. "One of the greatest privileges of our entire lives was being in service to Elizabeth when she conceived the HIV/AIDS treatment innovation of bringing vans of pharmacology and medical professionals to people in need during Hurricane Katrina. Elizabeth had countless wonderful qualities. Patience, in the face of suffering, was not one of them. When Elizabeth felt our government could not respond quickly enough to the disaster of Katrina, she stepped in with her foundation, recruited medical teams and wrote personal checks to make an immediate difference. Elizabeth made the work of public health heroes, like Dr. Michael Gottlieb, Martin Delany, Dr. Margrit Carlson and Dr. Anthony Fauci of the NIAID, powerfully visible. The depth and commitment of Elizabeth Taylor to saving lives, through the scourge of HIV/AIDS, has yet to be told."

"The exemplary way in which the Elizabeth Taylor Trust supports the foundation through its Managing Director Joel Goldman and its Co-Trustees Barbara Berkowitz, Tim Mendelson and Quinn Tivey is an inspiration for everyone who is committed to philanthropy and who uses resources to continue making a difference even beyond their own mortality," notes Ireland. "When talking with Elizabeth about her HIV/AIDS work, she would occasionally say 'I hope I made a little difference.' In fact, Elizabeth made an extraordinary difference by co-founding amfAR and The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation as well as through her countless heroic deeds to support disenfranchised people who were fighting for their lives, battling bigotry and prejudice, which sadly still exists. There is no question that Elizabeth will always be known as the Joan of Arc of AIDS. At no time, did Elizabeth ever consider the personal dangers and financial costs. It is hard to realize that in the 1980s many people were unaware of what caused HIV/AIDS. Elizabeth was the first person with a global public platform, which she used strictly for good, to say 'We're fighting a disease, not people.' Elizabeth frequently visited patients in a private way. She held them, cared for them, and gave them the greatest human kindness, which is love. There have been many debates about Elizabeth's support of making drugs available to people in need from her home. It was illegal, it was dangerous and it was something she simply had to do. Today, sadly, because Elizabeth never needed or sought publicity, so much of her heroism is unknown, especially to this generation. Children born in this decade must know about this woman, who is so much more than the most celebrated actor in film. Elizabeth is a woman of faith, family and friendship. A great and loving mother and grandmother, she placed the needs of everyone in her life above her own. On Dec 1st, 2017, on World AIDS Day, we salute Elizabeth with this contribution and look forward to continuing it in the years ahead."

We want to make the world a better place for LGBT people. That's why we donate 10% of proceeds to The Trevor Project which works to help prevent LGBTQ+ suicides. Through their 24/7 telephone help-line, they work to help suicidal LGBTQ+ people find a way out of hard times.

(156) Many people have been asking, “What exactly is Charlee J” so here’s the answer: Originally, Charlee was created by newlyweds Johnnie and Morgan (Charlee), two queer people of color for queer people of color. For us, By us kind of thing. Trying our best not to skip over anyone who falls under that huge umbrella. We began to strive to be an all LGBTQIA inclusive brand where everyone can find something wear that represents them. In July we kicked things off with the “Label Me” collection but felt as if something was missing.

As a Queer Woman of Color, there’s three things that represent me (Johnnie) and only my queer side was being represented. So we went back to the drawing boards to raise the bar just a little more. We created our second collection that included more pro black and pro women. With products ranging from phone cases to apparel. There is something for everyone. And something for everyone to love. This Fall we will be launching our Triple Minority Collection October 6th.

(155) Author's new book receives a warm literary welcome

Readers' Favorite announces the review of the Christian - Non-Fiction book "What Does God Think?" by award winning author, Cheryl B. Evans

Readers' Favorite is one of the largest book review and award contest sites on the Internet. They have earned the respect of renowned publishers like Random House, Simon & Schuster, and Harper Collins.

Reviewed By Danita Dyess for Readers' Favorite:

Is being transgender against God and the Bible? That is the question that Cheryl Evans, author of What Does God Think?: Transgender People and the Bible, attempts to answer. Evans, the mother of a daughter and a transgender son, said, "I set out to discover what is at the root of the vast differences in opinions about what God thinks, what the Bible says, and what individuals believe about transgender people." She uses scriptures like Ecclesiastes 11:5, Jeremiah 1:5 and many others to clearly show that God loves all people. Furthermore, she disproves scientific studies entailing the nature versus nurture theory. Readers will discover the difference between sex and gender, the role of social conditioning, and how many are thriving in their lives as a transgender person.



Cheryl Evans did an outstanding job writing What Does God Think?: Transgender People and the Bible. As a Christian, I was uncomfortable with the topic. But as I read about her goal to educate others and discuss the issue calmly, I wanted to know more. Each chapter has a thought-provoking scripture. This nonfiction work is comprehensive, honest and well researched. The Thank You section and Book Club Talking Points were great extras. I appreciated the fact that Evans admitted that she was not an academic or scholar -- that was the pivotal element that will truly touch readers as they identify with her position. Her first book, I Promised Not To Tell, inspired her to write her latest Christian true story. I believe Evans will receive critical acclaim. What Does God Think? is highly recommended."

You can learn more about Cheryl B. Evans and "What Does God Think?" at http://writtenbymom.ca where you will find interesting LGBT and transgender topic blog posts, her biography, book reviews, and listen to previous interviews Evans has participated in. You can also connect with the author directly or through their website and social media pages.

(153) Same-sex marriage U.S. Supreme Court case film takes viewers behind-the-scenes

See the people and events that led to the U.S. Supreme Court
legalizing same-sex marriage.


SUMMARY:
Three years ago Tim Love and Larry Ysunza walked into a county clerk’s office in Kentucky and were denied a marriage license. They decided to join a lawsuit started by two attorneys with no background in civil rights. Love v. Kentucky chronicles their journey and the story of how an unlikely group of attorneys from the Bluegrass State and across the U.S. came together to challenge their country’s definition of marriage. Americans get a rare chance to go behind-the-scenes to witness what goes into a Supreme Court case, the untold heated debate that led to Mary Bonauto arguing in front of the nine Justices instead of the Louisville counsel, and a chance to meet the many plaintiffs who put their personal lives on public display.

Alex Schuman, Love v. Kentucky’s executive producer and director, happened to be the only reporter with Tim and Larry when they were denied their license. This sparked a relationship with the couple that led to this otherwise undocumented story.

“We ended up with almost 90 hours of footage that was whittled down into this 87 minute film,” Alex Schuman Director and Executive Producer said. “Our aim was to capture the different dynamics involved in this historic case. We wanted a movie people would enjoy and that honored the generosity of everyone willing to take part in the film.”

Love v. Kentucky focuses on the cases Bourke v. Beshear and Love v. Beshear, but contains interviews with attorneys from Ohio, Michigan, Tennessee, and Mary Bonauto. Dan Canon, Kentucky’s lead attorney, is now a candidate for Congress.

(150) The Desert Rose Playhouse presents the Revival of David Dillon’s Smash Hit Comedy PARTY

Rancho Mirage, CA - The Desert Rose Playhouse, the Valley’s LGBTQIA stage company, will present a revival of last summer’s smash hit comedy, PARTY by David Dillon, opening Friday, June 23, 2017 for a six-week run. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 PM and Sundays at 2 PM, through July 30, 2017.

The wildly popular comedy depicts a group of gay men getting together for their monthly evening of drinks and games. Tonite, the game is a gay version of “Truth or Dare” called "Fact, Fiction or Fantasy". True life stories are shared, fictional encounters related and fantasies often require the player to remove his clothing. By the end of the evening, everyone is nude, singing and laughing together in a great show of brotherhood. Playwright Dillon says, “PARTY is not about flesh, but celebrates the fact that, as a group, we are positive and honest about our sexuality and free from a lot of the inhibitions and hang ups that exist in other groups."

The play opened for a five-week run in Chicago that turned into a two-year engagement, followed by a hugely successful Off-Broadway production and subsequent productions in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Orleans, London, Ft. Lauderdale, etc. As a member of the original cast stated, “They come for the nudity, but come again because it is such a funny, positive and affirming event. We’ve had gay men, straight couples, bachelorette parties, and all sorts of people in the audience and everyone has a great time!”

Last year’s DRP production was a huge success. DRP Artistic Director Jim Strait is thrilled that many of the actors in last season’s show can reprise their roles in this year’s revival, joined by a couple of actors who have recently made very positive impressions on Playhouse audiences.

PARTY stars Desert Rose Playhouse company members Miguel Arballo, David Boyd, Samuel Frank, Jason Hull, Allan Jensen, Kam Sisco and Robbie Wayne. Jim Strait designs and directs the production with award-winning Phil Murphy designing the lighting and Paul Taylor costuming.

This production is recommended for mature audiences due to nudity and sexual situations.

The Desert Rose Playhouse is a project of Desert Rose Productions, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit public benefit corporation. PARTY continues Desert Rose Productions’ mission to produce and present literate, relevant and entertaining plays and musicals to LGBT and Gay-Friendly theatregoers in the Coachella Valley.

Tickets are $37 for evening performances; $34 for matinees, which includes a $2 facility fee. To order go online at [www.desertroseplayhouse.org] or call 760-202-3000.
