(149) J Metro Releases New Single “Groove”

Groove is the sensation of R&B in a new era of music for an existing genre. When J Metro created the record for listeners, there was no concept off it being one of his biggest records to date. He only had aspirations of creating something to make both young and old generations feel good.

[soundcloud.com]

The Houston based Neo-soul artist has done much the past three years for his career from being considered for Grammy Nominations, performing in front of over thirty thousand at the Los Magnificos Car Show, to gracing the red carpet of the Annual Go Dj Award Show! Surely J Metro has kept fans waiting long enough for new music!

With the release of his new album Graffiti The Lost Art, J Metro creates an embodiment of the sounds buzzing in his head. With funk, soul, rhythm, and blues at his disposal the album gives a sound like no other. The leading single “Groove”, has debuted already on several charts and created a significant buzz locally and nationally for J Metro and the album itself.

(148) Gender Creative Kids Canada launches The You Inside Project

Montreal, Wednesday, June 14, 2017 – Despite the media buzz regarding transgender rights in
recent months, few resources exist to improve the situation for transgender youth today. Gender
Creative Kids Canada, together with lg2, is proud to launch The You Inside Project. This is a creative
and innovative social project featuring a short animated film shared on social media and an
educational toy (a fictional character named Sam) that is for pre-sale on Kickstarter. The project is
designed to answer the needs of loved ones searching for tools to discuss this delicate, complex and
universal issue with transgender children, their family and friends.

People are invited to support this project by sharing the animated film on social networks and by
participating in the international campaign of socio-financing through the online platform, Kickstarter.
To ensure the success of this project, Gender Creative Kids Canada hopes to pre-sell over 1,500
Russian Sam dolls, which will be ready to be shipped by spring 2018 if the goal is met.

A Russian doll that unites emotion and education

The You Inside Project tells the unique and touching story of Sam, a gender creative child. This
engaging character comes to life in a moving animated film created by Québec artist Rodolphe Saint-
Gelais. The project is further animated through an educational toy that illustrates the different
emotions felt by children who question their gender identity. Each toy is accompanied by a booklet that
explains the emotional steps represented by each figurine and helps adults answer difficult questions.
“The creation of an educational toy meets the specific needs of both parents and teachers who lack
tangible tools to help children and their families understand transgender identities and the emotional
challenges of being born gender creative,” explains Annie Pullen Sansfaçon from Gender Creative Kids
Canada. Pullen Sansfaçon is also an associate professor at the Université de Montréal and mother of
Olie, a gender creative child.

Transgender realities demystified through play

We know that anywhere between 2%–6% of boys and 5%–12% of girls identify or express their
gender differently from their assigned sex at birth. Most children who question their gender identity
are born in environments that are not prepared for this reality. They are often victims of physical,
verbal and sexual harassment that can lead to situations of rejection, isolation and depression. Play is
one of the best ways for children to learn and it also helps adults to open discussions on a sensitive
topic. It is difficult for a child to be assigned a sex at birth that does not correspond to their gender
identity. It is equally difficult for family and friends to understand the difference between the sex
assigned at birth and that child’s gender identity. Therefore, the creation of a concrete, child-friendly
tool for informing, exchanging and educating is so vitally important: with education comes
understanding, empathy and, ultimately, acceptance.

Additional information

Quebec society will need to become increasingly aware of the needs of transgender youth. The
Government of Quebec’s Plan of Action to Prevent and Combat Bullying 2015–2018 already recognizes
this reality and proposes to work on certain aspects related to the trans-youth experience by
supporting the school community on this issue and making the fight against homophobic and
transphobic bullying one of its priorities. The new Government Action Plan to Combat Homophobia and
Transphobia 2017–2022 reaffirms the importance of sensitizing the various communities, including
schools, to sexual diversity.

(147) Join us and be part of the Gay Life After 40 Conference.August-Chicago, Il

If there ever was a time for Gay men after 40 , it is now!

Life coaches and other professionals will be giving workshops from communicating the virtues of being a gay man, overcoming grief, to developing a new social life after 40, to overcome physical and mental challenges with fresh perspectives by "aging forward" in life (the motto of GLA40).

Author and Life Coach- Raymond Rigoglioso, Gay Men of Wisdom
Through this workshop, you'll begin to gain an understanding of how your differences enable you to make important contributions to the people around you--on your job, and in your family and community.

You'll take the 19-page Distinct Gay Male Gifts self-assessment. Then we'll break into small groups for a discussion, followed by a full group debrief. It will be a great way to get to know each other.

Loren Olson, PhD, Author and Psychiatrist
Discussing his book, Finally Out: Letting Go of Living Straight.

Dr. Loren A. Olson has frequently been asked two questions: How could you not know that you were gay until the age of forty? Wasn't your marriage just a sham to protect yourself at your wife's expense? In Finally Out, Dr. Olson vigorously answers both questions by telling the inspiring story of his evolving sexuality, into which he intelligently weaves psychological concepts and gay history. This book is a powerful exploration of human sexuality, particularly the sexuality of mature men who, like Dr. Olson, lived a large part of their lives as straight men - sometimes long after becoming aware of their same-sex attractions.


Life Coach, U Line Creator -Steven Reeder
Steven has appeared as a speaker on the topics of work/life balance, personal and professional change, and attitudinal awareness. He is an assistant trainer for the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC), and is an Energy Leadership Master Practitioner, and owner of U Line

There are many more speakers as well.

(145) Kenny Rials releases new album, Second Chances

Releases song about personal experience and anti-bullying.

Nationwide, January 12, 2017: Singer/songwriter and author, Kenny Rials announces the release of his new album Second Chances. Recorded at Soho Sonic Studios in London, Second Chances is the follow up to Rials’ debut EP - Time Doesn’t Stand Still, which featured the title track and the club hit “Not Yet, Someday”.

Second Chances is available via digital outlets and CD configuration. As a strong advocate for anti-bullying, the songs throughout Second Chances – all penned by Rials – offer hope and support to all victims of bullying. “I was bullied as a teenager,” states Rials. “I kept my head down and tried to be invisible. In my lyrics, I ask those still being tormented to please hold on, it will be our time to shine soon.” That vision thrives in the single “It Never Rains Forever” and the song “Mischievous”. Following the release of Second Chances, Rials will be hitting the road throughout the UK and USA in 2017.

About Kenny Rials

Kenny Rials is global. He’s a native from Louisiana, a New Yorker for ten years while studying acting and singing, and now a Brit living in London. He’s performed and visited 62 countries, but has kept his southern twang and roots.

“I still say y’all and have fried chicken and jambalaya at least once a month,” he admits.

While living in New York, Kenny performed in Broadway and Off-Broadway productions, but longed to sing and perform his own music. He was given the chance after meeting a producer in London. Kenny’s debut EP – Time Doesn’t Stand Still was released in 2014 and the follow up album, Second Chances, is available now.

(144) World Child Launches "The Global Harmony Plan"
To End Racism Against All Minority Groups


It's crazy but it's all true. After 25 years of research and development a 3 stage 7 strategy plan to create Global Harmony is launching that will lay the foundation for a peaceful and sustainable world. One of the plan's main missions, in fact the reason it began, is to promote equality for people of the world including the LGBT community. It's founder initially began promoting anti racism on T-shirts that he called "walking billboards" with powerful positive messages such as "It's not who you love but that you love". "There is only one race, the human race", and "No Child is born a racist" (shown above and now available on the website). In his mission to end racism and violence against all minority groups he researched its causes extensively and came to the conclusion that it is intertwined with poverty, the environment, a lack of education, upbringing and politics. Early on he realized a strategic plan was needed if his mission to end racism was to be achieved. For more than 25 years he immersed himself into key industries in order to gain the critical experience and knowledge to create and implement each of the 3 stages and 7 strategies of the plan.

The Global Harmony Plan that will lay the foundation to create an inclusive, peaceful and sustainable world can now be viewed and supported by the entire human race at [www.GlobalHarmonyPlan.org]

About Global Harmony's Founder
As if in some way designed to be the spokesperson for the plan and international acceptance, the founder of the Global Harmony plan is a Canadian citizen born in the USA on epiphany (January 6th) and is a "world child" growing up in countries like Peru, Thailand and Spain. During his professional career he achieved success as an entrepreneur, reached partner status in key companies and attained executive positions in publicly traded companies that include the plan's critical industries of real estate and eLearning. Currently to fund the creation of the plan he is a REALTOR® and a partner in a construction company called Green Star Homes that offers a home plan called the Nirvana in a location many people consider to be paradise Peachland in the BC Canada's Okanagan region. Upon funding he intends to make it his living promoting the Global Harmony Plan.

A world child born on epiphany
with a plan for Global Harmony
offering nirvana plans in paradise.


"To achieve Global Harmony I studied and gained extensive experience in industries that will play major roles in its success. My desire to end racism stems from my childhood upbringing which exposed me to the suffering caused by racism when kids and parents alike would be mean simply because of the color of my skin or shape of my eyes. Living in many countries I learned most people are peaceful and inclusive, however, the minority opposed to these beliefs seem to be louder and more determined to succeed at promoting their views. We, the majority, must unite, and promote peace if we are to end racism and change the destructive and potentially species ending path humanity is on. What I realized early on in my research is there was no plan or mission for a sustainable and peaceful world's achievement making it's achievement impossible. This reality left me, and I believe most people, feeling hopeless. When we the majority unite and believe we can create a peaceful world with a realistic plan I know a future generation will have the ability to achieve Global Harmony. It is every person's responsibility to protect those living and those who have yet to arrive by creating and providing a peaceful and sustainable world for them to live and be born into. In essence I believe we have the power to lay the foundation for a plan that will eventually create heaven on earth. In fact I am selling Nirvana homes in paradise as evidence to it's possibility" COBZ, Founder of Global Harmony.
About the Global Harmony Symbol
For the human race to unite and show support for a peaceful and sustainable world the following Global Harmony symbol can be displayed by everyone on their social media, homes, vehicles, schools businesses regardless of race, religion or country:

Learn more about the Global Harmony Symbol at: [www.globalharmonyplan.org]

The symbol when displayed represents that person's, school's, church's or business's support for anti-racism, non-violence, happiness for all, peace, compassion and harmony with the planet. "Having lived around the world I know the majority of people want Global Harmony, however, it seems those who do not are more vocal. I believe we must begin Global Harmony by expansively promoting humanities desire; that we the majority desire peace and sustainability. May the day come soon when racism is distant memory and Global Harmony is in every country, every city, every home and soul." COBZ, founder and guide

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

United Kingdom – In 1948, the release of Alfred Kinsey’s ‘Sexual Behavior in the Human Male’ introduced the world to the Kinsey Scale, and the now-widely-accepted notion that people are not simply “straight” or “gay”. Sexuality is fluid and, in a compelling new novel by M. Cassol, women everywhere are encouraged to discover and prosper as who they really are.

Everything unravels in ‘Fanny Fun’ – an intense, steamy and incredibly thought-provoking novel aptly subtitled, “A big lesbian drama in a small straight world”.

Synopsis:

Fanny Fun is a gripping novel that explores the ideas of bisexuality and lesbianism. Through an honest glimpse into the lives of the characters, readers are taken on journeys of self- love and discovery. 

Everyone struggles against adversities, but the characters in this novel all handle them in a unique way that reflects each individual character’s personality. As they grow and mature they learn what they want in life and how to go about getting it. 

The theme of acceptance is a strong one throughout the story. It gives readers a glimpse into the ways in which several characters have to face a reality that is not what they expected. 

This story does not lack intrigue and mystery. The reader gets sucked into the story and starts caring about the fate of the characters. Easy to relate to, these characters could easily make a reader laugh, cry or gasp in shock and amazement.


Any woman that has ever struggled with her sexuality will be able to draw inspiration and guidance from this novel. Each character’s story is poignant and can serve as an example of the ways in which women can overcome the issues they struggle with. 

Have you ever stopped to think about how your actions affect the world around you? A simple word, a reckless action, what would be their consequences? Our history metamorphoses regularly and we are the sparkle of every life's chain reaction.

Fanny Fun is about connection and the impact of our decisions and how the world can become a small place on the eternal quest for love. 

How many heartaches does it take to learn to choose the right person? And is the "right person" really the one?

Immerse yourself in this lesbian melodrama, following its domino effect around the world.

“We live in a world that’s inherently chaotic and tumultuous; it can be hard to find yourself and live with 100% honesty,” explains the author. “The goal of this book is to help women cut to the core of who they really are, and live with ferocious confidence whether they’re gay, bisexual, straight or anywhere in between. It’s a true rollercoaster of bold and vivid emotion that will compel readers to look inward and discover things about themselves they’ve been too afraid to confront.”

Continuing, “I don’t tread on eggshells when dissecting the subject of gender identity, yet I approach it in a very dignified and sensitive way. At the end of the day, I just want women to love themselves for who they are – no matter what anyone else thinks.”

Early reviews for the novel have been glowing. For example, Georgia comments, “This book is definitely a rollercoaster of emotions. Although the writing style can sometimes be a little repetitive, it is well-suited to the genre and contributes to the overarching theme of enduring love. The sex scenes are very well written and contribute to the overall success of the novel.”

Another reader adds, “I loved this book which I read almost in an afternoon - I couldn't put it down. The characters are so well developed they almost jump off the pages and I found myself caring about them through the plot's twists, turns and elegant switchbacks. It also feels really well researched, full of detail and description. Mostly, though it's a really fun read - naughty and nice at the same time.”

‘Fanny Fun: A big lesbian drama in a small straight world’ is available now:

About the Author:

M. Cassol was always passionate about human nature and sexuality. From struggling with her own sexual orientation to accepting that she was a lesbian, she has lived many lives as a basketball player, DJ, A&E doctor, business owner and founder of well-known skincare range. She relished and travelled all around the world, providing her with the opportunity to be exposed to her favourite subject: Women. Now, in her mid 30's, she found the maturity and creativity to dwell into writing. Fanny Fun, her first novel, traverses femininity, sex and love from her admirer perspective, inviting you to explore the enchanting lesbian universe.

(140) Former Music Director at Holy Family Launches Campaign to Raise Funds to Fight the Church

Summary: Music Director launches Funded Justice crowd funding campaign to launch lawsuit against Catholic Church after being fired from his job over same-sex marriage

A campaign has been launched to right a wrong after an openly gay music director was sacked from his job at Holy Family after announcing he was going to marry his longtime partner, Will Nifong. Colin Collette was shocked after he was dismissed from his job by the Catholic Church, a job he had loved and done for 17 happy and successful years.

After announcing he was due to get married, he was told he must either resign or his contract would be terminated. Colin Collette who wants his job back filed a discrimination lawsuit against the Archdiocese of Chicago and Holy Family Parish in Inverness, Illinois. He now needs the support of people around the world to help meet the financial costs of fighting for what’s right.

To learn more about the campaign and about the case that has shocked people around the world, please visit [www.fundedjustice.com] to learn more about how you can help fight prejudice against the LGBT community.
