S2 E15 Guest: filmmaker David Millbern
On this episode of The Bill Alexander Show, Bill talks with Emmy-winning actor-producer David Millbern about his documentary, the critically acclaimed "100 Years of Men in Love: The Accidental Collection" and it's newly discovered imagery that is already reaching iconic stature, which is a documentary focusing on a unique, moving and joy-filled collection of vintage photographs of men in love from the 1850s to the 1950s, taken when male partnerships were often illegal, the photos were found at flea markets, in shoe boxes, family archives, estate sales, and old suitcases.
"100 Years of Men in Love” shines a light on some of that history through a selection of photographs collected by Hugh Nini and Neal Treadwell stumbled upon an old photograph of a gay couple by random and then turned it into their mission to discover more of pictures history tried to bury. As they found more and more, they realized some of these photographs dated back more than 100 years.
Fans and critics, both LGBTQ and not are now applauding director David Millbern for compiling this remarkable footage. “100 Years of Men in Love” is a landmark documentary-style film that sticks close to its title and central premise. Over the course of 57 minutes, we’re treated to various photographs of men expressing love for one another that date back as far as 1850 and as recent as 1955.
Due to how gay couples have been treated over the course of human history, you can already tell how bold it would be for a couple to take a photograph with each other in an embrace during that time frame. The film, itself, works as a huge eye-opener to any naysayers and the current trend of anti-gay rhetoric that believe homosexuality is a more recent trend in human development. As clearly shown by these pictures, the film shows proof that same-sex dating back to the 1850s that gay men were living together in America and unafraid of showing their love in public.
Punctuated between certain photos are quotes from authors such as Walt Whitman and Henry David Thoreau that illustrate how love is universal. Regardless of gender identity or race, we as humans can fall in love with one another. We shouldn’t be imposing limits on our love when love is one of the strongest emotions we can give.
Those who experience “100 Years of Men in Love” are treated to a selection of moments that history couldn’t destroy. The love on display was so powerful, it outlived its subjects and went on to become a beacon of hope for others. "If that’s not the definition of true love, I’m not sure what else could be,” says Director and Producer, David Millbern.
S2 E14 Guest: acclaimed intuitive, medium and animal communicator Terri Jay
On this episode of The Bill Alexander Show, Bill talks with acclaimed intuitive, medium, and animal communicator Terri Jay about her talents and her appearance in the Peacock Series "Paul T. Goldman".
Terri Jay has been doing readings by phone around the world for over 30 years. “I do everything except predictions and police work,” Jay shared. “Even though I have been doing this work for so long, I am always surprised and sometimes even shocked at the details and the information that comes through.” “I never get anything negative or scary and it has often been life-changing in an incredibly positive way,” Terri said. Terri takes the woo-woo out of this field by basing her work in physics. She says that all she does is pick up on energy, frequencies and vibrations that other people miss. In addition, there are 7-9 million people in the U.S. who cannot communicate due to illness, injury and disease, that she has been able to connect with and discusses in her book entitled, "Intuitive Communication."
Terri’s original reading with Paul, as depicted in the series, happened years ago and from that first time, Terri encouraged Paul to keep track of all of it and write a book about it. Now, all these years later, it is an exciting series coming out on Peacock.
S2 E13 Guest: author Seana Zelazo
Over 4000 years ago in ancient Sumer, some of the first mythographers inscribed the stories and myths of the Goddess Inanna on clay tablets in cuneiform. These incredible findings were unearthed, and the fragments were painstakingly pieced together and translated.
What they discovered were the ways Inanna was heralded as a goddess who embodies polarities: impatient and deliberate, an attentive lover and fierce warrior, connected to fertility as well as death—making her an accessible, relatable, and inspiring representation of the Divine Feminine as she stands in her power and multidimensionality. The Way of Inanna: A Heroine’s Guide to Living Unapologetically is a field guide to heart-centered living through the wisdom of the Sumerian Goddess of Love.
Each chapter deconstructs sacred narratives in which the Goddess navigates the seven gates of her soul’s journey from awakening to ascension. More than a simple retelling, the book is myth made manifest in which Inanna becomes a means to accessing our own ascension and alchemical magic within our modern, contemporary context.
With a combined psychotherapeutic and spiritual approach, author Seana Zelazo offers rituals and practices to help readers connect directly with Inanna. From harnessing your sensual energy to reclaiming the generative capacity of the Divine Feminine and identifying and amplifying your life’s purpose, you will discover the ways Inanna’s process is your own.
