Jacob & Joshua to be at Nashville HRC Dinner

Jacob & Joshua Miller, gay identical twin brothers who make up the pop/rock group “Nemesis”, will join other celebrities attending the 12th Annual Equality Dinner.

While the two are not scheduled to perform, they will be making a special guest appearance on stage during the program. They join country sensation LeAnn Rimes, Brian Graden, president of Entertainment, MTV Networks Music Channels and president of Logo, and Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign as part of the evening’s program. WTVF NewsChannel 5 anchor Vickie Yates will host the evening.

Three notable Nashvillians will be honored at the 12th Annual Equality Dinner for their contributions to Nashville's GLBT community. Marisa J. Richmond, Ph.D., Christopher Sanders and Iris Buhl have been selected by the Nashville HRC steering committee to be honored.

Jacob & Joshua, who are recording artists with Curb Recors, recently stared in their own reality series, “Nemesis Rising” on Logo last October.

The series chronicled the twins as they made their way in the cutthroat music industry and, at the same time, come out publicly about their sexual orientation.

The brothers lived in Nashville for several years before moving to Los Angeles to aggressively pursue their music careers. Prior to moving, Joshua had been a popular bartender at Play Dance Club on Church Street.

The Nashville HRC Dinner is presented by Bridgestone and the Silent Auction by CMT. The event will be held on Saturday, March 31, 2007, at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel.

"This year’s theme is 'Everyday People, Everyday Families,' and these three honorees have made significant strides to create an environment where GLTB persons are truly accepted as 'everyday people' with 'everyday families,' said J. Noble.

Honoring the hard work of the Tennessee Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Trans-gendered community, as well as its supporters, this event has become not only the highest-profile fundraiser for the Human Rights Campaign in the Volunteer state but one of the most anticipated social events in Nashville, selling out the past several years.   

Cocktails and a silent auction begin at 6 p.m. and will be followed by the dinner and program at 7:30 p.m.  Ticket prices are $175 per person and are available through www.theequalitydinner.com or 1-800-494-TIXS.

Financial Planning for the LGBTQ+ community

The new year has arrived. For many people, that means making resolutions and thinking of ways they can do better in the coming year and beyond. Money management and financial planning are often very popular resolutions and goals, but most financial advice tends to be aimed at heterosexual couples who want to grow their family and raise children.

But, what if your life goals are different? What if you don’t receive the same protection under the current laws as hetero couples?
What if you don’t want to have kids?

Mental Health for LGBTQ+ Aging Adults

Queer elders have made a big impact on the world. Queer folks over the age of 65 were around during the Stonewall Movement in the 1960s and may have even campaigned to improve the rights and freedoms of LGBTQ+ people around the world.

But, as queer elders enter later life, they may need to find new ways to protect and preserve their mental health.
