10.19.10: Today's Show

Today on The Lisa D Show at noon we'll start the show with information on how your candidates will vote in the Nov. 2 election. Which candidates are supporting domestic partnership coverage for City employees? Do you know and if not, where do you find out voter information like that?

Today live in the studio we'll interview Jessy Castaneda about her coming out story. We've been telling coming out stories on The Lisa D Show this month in honor of national coming out month. We'll also talk about the recent viral phenom known as "It gets Better". Started by sex columnist Dan Savage the New York Times reports ... "Some say the videos also represent an important moment for the gay rights movement. The sharing of coming-out stories has long been a tool of solidarity among gays as “a way to say that we understand each other because we had to come out under fire or because we struggled with it,” Mr. Sprinkle said.

Also this weekend is the AIDS Walk El Paso on Saturday, October 23, at Memorial Park 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We will talk with event organizer David Peralta-Torres about AIDS in El Paso. Info: There are currently 1,670 confirmed cases of HIV/AIDS in the El Paso Region. It is estimated that 25% more cases have not yet been reported because many people are still not getting tested. “It is critical that our testing numbers increase in the El Paso Community in order for us to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS. Getting tested not only helps in reducing the statistics, but also ensures that if someone is infected, they can receive the treatment they need to live a long healthy life” said David Peralta-Torres, HIV Education Prevention Specialist. AIDS Walk El Paso has been used as a vehicle to help raise awareness and support for local non-profits like International AIDS Empowerment & AIDS Project El Paso who assist in prevention, education and support services for members of the community affected with HIV/AIDS. Both organizations rely heavily on monetary and in-kind donations for the services they provide. For information on how to sponsor, pledge, walk or form a team for AIDS Walk El Paso 2010 please visit www.internationalaids.org or for more information on the HIV Prevention Program visit: http://www.elpasotexas.gov/health/education.asp

Then we'll talk about something totally worth your time, a sunset drive to Mesilla on Highway 28 to the Fountain Theatre.
