The celebration of gender-variant people in Native circles is flourishing. Many Native lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgenders are out and proud. How are Native LGBT members celebrating their pride? What is the historical thought of Native LGBT individuals? Do they play a role traditionally? Have we learned to shun these individuals as another part of Western assimilation? Guests include John “Hawk” Co-Cke (Osage/Peoria/Cherokee) HIV-AIDS Coordinator/ Indian Health Care Resource Center of Tulsa, Sherrick Roanhorse (DinÃ©) member of the Dine Coalition for Cultural Preservation and Sharon Day (Ojibway), Executive Director/ Indigenous Peoples Task Force. Callers include past Co-Chairs of Bay Area American Indian Two-Spirits, Miko Thomas (Chickasaw) and Sabrina Wolf (Apache).

One side quotes Biblical scripture as the basis of their opposition, while the other side points to the fact that it’s a personal decision and protected by civil rights laws. Last week, the city of San Francisco gave out marriage licenses and performed marriages to a number of same sex couples. Those in Native communities that are of ‘two-spirits’ seek equality as well. What is Indian Country’s stance on same sex marriages? Should those of the same gender be allowed to have the same rights as those in a heterosexual relationship?
