Saturday, September 25.

That’s the date for the return engagement of WYATT!— the captivating, oh-so entertaining, and fast-growing radio show!

WYATT! does a deep dive into those timely and critical issues that impact Gay/SGL (Same-Gender-Loving) men with a diverse set of LGBTQ movers, shakers, and change agents. The podcast is absorbing, informative, thought-provoking…and sprinkled with sly, spicy (and sometimes a wee bit) scandalous humor!  WYATT! airs on YouTube and Spotify.

This episode of WYATT! kick-starts National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, or DVAM, a tad early. Actually, October is designated as DVAM.  This entire month of special events evolved from the First Day of Unity observed in October 1981 by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV)

Our special guest is Mr. Brett A. Parson, former openly Gay/SGL (same gender loving) officer for the MPD, the Washington DC Metropolitan Police Department. With more than 25 years of experience in local, state, and federal law enforcement, Mr. Parson is an internationally recognized leader who has helped create ground-breaking programs that are recognized as models for other departments across the country and around the world.

He’s championed award-winning innovations in multiple areas, including programs to protect victims of domestic violence and Intimate Partner Violence and Abuse, or IPV/A, which is domestic violence and abuse within the LGBTQ Community. Parson is a valuable resource and authority on IPV/A, which is dysfunctional, demoralizing, and debilitating.

And potentially life-threatening.

Parson will describe how he handled being out on the force–and whether or not he experienced harassment from other officers.  He’ll discuss his leadership of the Gay and Lesbian Liaison Unit (GLLU), which received the Harvard University’s Kennedy School Innovations in American Government Award.

We’ll also learn how Parson helped expand the Gay and Lesbian Liaison Unit (GLLU) to create the Special Liaison Branch (SLB), whose mission is to improve police service to a wide range of underserved communities, including LGBTQ, African, Asian, Latino, deaf and hard of hearing, and faith-based.

However, the former officer states that battling Intimate Partner Violence and Abuse, and domestic violence, has become a specialty.  Brett and I will discuss the warning signs; how victims can make their Great Escape (the phrase I’ve coined for my workshops and seminars); his thought-provoking take on whether or not an abuser can control his/her behavior—and much more.

We’ll also saunter down “the corridors of time” to learn how Brett’s childhood helped develop his strong work ethic and created his passion for police work.  And, he’ll give us the 411 on his company, Brett A. Parson Consulting.

So Y’all, join us for some incisive, insightful…and rather invigorating talk!

Simply put, WYATT! is “Eargasm For Tha Grown Folks!”
