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.

This week’s Guest: Jean Franzblau, actress, playwright, corporate trainer and producer of “Coming Out Kinky”

Sexuality is defined in many ways. Some like it hot, some like it not. The journey toward sexual maturity is not as straight forward as you may think. There are many people who suffer from shame, fear and isolation as they begin to experiment with different approaches to sexual relationships and their own sexual proclivities. Join me and my guest Jean Franzblau as we discuss the various ways people enjoy and explore their sexuality, including how to find your way to a healthy relationship with your own sexuality and sexual preferences. This will be one stimulating conversation and one you won’t want to miss (although viewer discretion is advised, especially for those under aged).

“The Aftermath of Affairs: Healing as a Couple” - Sunday October 27, 1:30PM PST - LATalkLive

This Week’s Guest: Todd Creager, LCSW

Affairs happen. There are many reasons why people go outside their committed relationship or marriage to seek connection. Sometimes it's sexual, sometimes emotional, sometimes psychological and many times all three. It can be about what's wrong or missing in the relationship or about what's wrong or missing in the individual, or both. 

Regardless, once a partner or spouse finds out about a betrayal, the relationship goes into crisis. There are many issues to understand and tasks to address before a couple can heal. Some relationships will survive, some will thrive, and some will end. Join me and my guest Todd Creager, LCSW as we explore what it takes to recover from the aftermath of an affair. If you or someone you know has gone through a betrayal, it's important to know that it doesn't have to mean the end;  the crisis can be transformed into the beginning of something better. With the high percentage of people in committed relationships admitting to having an affair at some point in their lives, this is a show you won't want to miss.

Whether you identify yourself as heterosexual, homosexual or bisexual, this show will illuminate your truth, support your journey, and celebrate love!

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.

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.

“Overcoming Childhood Sexual Abuse” Friday March 15 – LATalkLive 

This week’s guest: Nancy Irwin Ph.D., Therapist and Author, Co-Host, Stephen Tako, Actor, Motivational Speaker 

About Nancy: Originally from Atlanta, Dr. Nancy Irwin moved to New York City in 1985 to pursue a career as a stand-up comedian.  She worked all over the country and abroad, and moved to L.A. in 1994 when she heard that Hollywood needed more blondes…

Dr. Nancy experienced an epiphany when she began volunteer work for Children of the Night, a shelter for sexually abused children in Los Angeles. This work waked up the healer in her, allowed her to heal her own adolescent abuse at the hand of a clergyman, and prompted her to pursue a doctorate in psychology to specialize in the prevention and healing of sexual abuse.  She now treats victims as well as abusers, for it is her belief that “The best way to help victims is to help the perpetrators.” 

Dr. Nancy is a frequent media expert on numerous radio and TV shows, including CNN, CNBC, Fox, MSNBC, Anderson, The Rachel Maddow Show, The Mitch Albom Show, and more. 

A reinvention expert, Dr. Nancy is the author of YOU-TURN: CHANGING DIRECTION IN MIDLIFE (2008), a collection of “over 40 stories of people over 40” who made amazing transitions in midlife.
