You will wonder at times how she knew about you and a particular significant other because she seems to describe you and the relationship to a T. And, when you read the last page you will wish you had read it years and a number of relationships earlier.

I have read other books on this topic which spoke to me... This book, which I got in the Kindle version, pulled it all together for me--the biology, personal values, self identity, the human quest for belonging and intimacy. The book... brought to me great understanding. I wish I had ordered the paper version with the workbook. I ended up going back and ordering it.

“Creating Intimate and Loving Same Sex Relationships” Sunday June 30 1:30PM PST – LATalkLive 

This week’s guests: Kristin Russo and Dannielle Owens-Reid, Founders, Everyone is Gay

Many young (and not so young) people struggle with their sexual orientation as they begin to understand who they are attracted to and who they want to love. Human sexuality and romantic attraction are complex. Love is not. Same-sex relationships experience love just like any other relationship. They go through the same four phases of development as described in The Pathway to Love. Join us as we explore the journey of discovering one's sexual orientation and how to create healthy and loving relationships, no matter who you choose to love. Whether you identify yourself as heterosexual, homosexual or bisexual, this show will illuminate your truth, support your journey, and celebrate love! 

Please note: Due to Kristin and Danneille’s travel schedule, this show will be taped on Thursday June 27th and aired on Sunday June 30th. If you would like to join in the conversation, please post your questions and comments on www.facebook.com/JulieOrlov. We will not be able to take your calls LIVE during the Sunday 1:30PM PST airing for this week only!

About Kristin and Dannielle

Dannielle holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Theatre Performance, and spent three years in Chicago studying improv and sketch comedy (that’s where the funny comes from). During that time she was also teaching drama to kids ages 8 – 18. Dannielle is the creator of Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber, was the runner-up to be the first ever MTVTJ (twitter jockey), ran social media for Virgin Mobile on the Lady Gaga Monster Ball Tour, and starred as Justin Bieber in Not Another Celebrity Movie. She believes herself to be a “stellar problem solver,” has the ability to see both sides of the situation #libra, and gets her dance moves from her dad.

Kristin holds a Master’s Degree in Gender Studies and a Bachelor’s Degree in Theater, but gained most of her preparation for Everyone Is Gay while lip-syncing to Wilson Phillips and TLC in the late-nineties. After moving to NYC in 2000 and running her own theater company for three years, she began volunteering at The Hetrick-Martin Institute (a service provider for LGBTQ youth and the home of the Harvey Milk High School). Inspired by the students and faculty at Hetrick-Martin, she focused her graduate studies on LGBTQ youth and curriculum, and soon thereafter founded Everyone Is Gay. She has a cat named Trey, a penchant for crossword puzzles, and a deep-seated appreciation for Italian Ice.
