August 2010: IN THE LIFE “Twilight No More”

AS ALWAYS, I WILL POST THE ENTIRE EPISODE ONCE IT BECOMES AVAILABLE ONLINE. ~Ifelicious

Episode Summary

This month, IN THE LIFE features encore presentations of three stories from our archive. We look at how a work of art inspired The Trevor Project, the leading national organization for crisis and suicide prevention for LGBT and questioning youth. In A Conversation With…, Edmund White and Doric Wilson revisit the Stonewall Riots, and the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence share how, unified as an Order of many faiths and spiritual beliefs, they’ve been “promulgating universal joy” for over three decades.

The Trevor Project

The tragedy of teen suicide is many times more likely for alienated LGBT youth than their straight peers. James Lecesne‘s groundbreaking play “Word of Mouth,” became an Oscar winning short film (Trevor), that gave birth to the only nationwide, 24-hour, suicide prevention helpline that has saved countless thousands. Now in its tenth year, The Trevor Project provides lifesaving guidance and vital resources to teens, educators and parents.

A Conversation With… Edmund White and Doric Wilson

Writers Edmund White and Doric Wilson share first hand accounts of the Stonewall Riots, and discuss how bearing witness to the uprising impacted their work and shaped their politics.

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence

Since their first appearance in San Francisco on Easter Sunday in 1979, The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence have used the power of parody to expose the forces of bigotry, complacency, and guilt. Today, The Sisters are a global collective of queer performance artists devoted to promoting human rights, respect for diversity, and spiritual enlightenment.

Twilight No More will begin airing August 1st. To find out when it airs in your local area, to stream or download it, go to the IN THE LIFE website: www.inthelifetv.org.

  2. Nandoism- thank you! i really like this show and have been covering it for 2 seasons. it’s well produced and i’ve learned a lot. from my stats, the readership isn’t where i’d like it to be, but i believe in it and hope to tap the right people eventually.

    besides, i don’t believe in just talking the talk when i say i support my gay fans, friends, family, readership. it’s about walking the walk, too.
