The Wine Cellar Is Relocating

We are closing in on that time, folks. 
We’ve already started moving boxes into the new place and we’re packing more. 
The Wine Cellar is about to have a new location of which we will stay for 5 years or more. 

In this space, we have a 3rd bedroom that can be the studio room, so we will no longer be struggling to do it from the bedroom. 

And shortly after we move, Phoenix Calida will be quitting her job at the church and she will be Full Time on The Wine Cellar. 

We’ll keep it casual on this one and go over so backed up show notes that we’ve been too busy to turn into episodes.

Shocking video shows trans woman being attacked while police officer turns a blind eye

video of a trans woman being assaulted while the police stood by and watched in Iran has gone viral.

In the video, which was originally posted to Facebook by Iranian feminist activists, the woman emits a bloodcurdling scream as she is attacked by a gang.

Although a policeman is sat in a car right next to the attack, he simply ignores the crime and attempts to drive across the square, reports Gay Star News.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — An attack on a transgender woman riding a CATS bus on April 7 went viral last week, garnering news coverage from a variety of local sources. The brutal attack left the victim with a broken jaw, and is just the latest in what advocates say is an exponential rise in anti-LGBTQ violence.

Jayla Ware, 24, was attacked by Roy Eugene-Lav Hedman after a disagreement while riding a CATS bus in the 400 block of N. Tryon St. Hedman punched Ware in face at least a dozen times, dragged her to the floor of the bus and kicked her in the face another dozen times.

Police have a ‘very strong’ lead in killing of transgender SC woman

Sheriff’s investigators have “a very strong suspect” in the Easter weekend killing of a transgender South Carolina woman.

Sasha Wall was found dead in her car on a rural roadway in Chesterfield County the morning of April 1, authorities have said. The 29-year-old had been shot multiple times at close range in the neck and shoulder.

The FBI is assisting sheriff’s investigators in analyzing phone records and data from cell towers near where Wall was found, Chesterfield County Sheriff Jay Brooks told The State on Monday.

Why This Texas Man Got Probation for Murdering Gay Neighbor

It’s been five years since the American Bar Association called on every state to end the use of the “gay panic” defense. It’s been 20 years since the death of Matthew Shepard, and since his killers argued a “gay panic” defense in court, claiming Shepard had made a pass and driven them to murder. 

But so far only two states have banned the defense from the courtroom. And in Texas last week, it knotched another win for a murderer.

Seventh trans woman murdered in the US was shot to death in motel room

A seventh transgender woman has been found dead in the United States this

(Facebook) year.

Amia Tyrae Berryman, a 28-year-old from Los Angeles was found shot to death in a motel room o

n Monday night.

Police were reportedly called to the Baton Rouge area of Los Angeles on Monday night after reports of gunshots outside a motel in the Wooddale East neighbourhood.

The body of Amia Tyrae Berryman was found at the scene with multiple gunshot wounds.

Police are still investigating her death and will conduct an autopsy later today.

While police have not yet misgendered her, local news reports have misgendered Berryman and used her dead name.

Local reports from WBRZ-TV 2 deadnamed and misgendered her and have yet to rectify this as of writing.

This is the second trans woman to be killed by a gun in a motel room in 2018.

Celine Walker, 36, was found shot to death in a motel room in Jacksonville, Florida in February.

She was pronounced dead on February 4, meaning that she was the second trans woman to be killed within a week.However, police reports misgendered Walker and used her dead name meaning initial reports did not recognise her trans identity and caused the announcement of her death to be delayed by over a week.

Florida authorities have been slammed for misgendering Walker.

2018 has already shown an alarming rate of deaths, with 2018 set to surpass 2017’s staggeringly high rate of trans deaths and killings.

35-year-old Tonya Harvey was shot to death on Shepard Street in Buffalo, New York.

Christa Leigh Steele-Knudslien, who founded the Miss Trans America pageant, and Viccky Gutierrez, were burned to death in Los Angeles.

Viccky Gutierrez was brutally killed on the morning of January 10.

2017 saw one of the highest rates of trans deaths, with over 250 reported deaths of trans and gender non-conforming people worldwide.

Many deaths of trans and gender non-conforming people go unreported. When the deaths are reported, trans people are frequently misgendered in reports, making it especially hard to correctly count the number of deaths in a given year.

Rape trial opens for former cop

Rape trial opens for former cop

MICHIGAN CITY — The rape trial against former Michigan City police officer Thomas K. Jackson is underway in La Porte Superior Court 1 this week.

In opening statements Tuesday morning, the state told the jury the victim is an intellectually disabled 25-year-old woman whose disability prohibits her from being able to consent to sex.

Deputy Prosecutor Elizabeth Boehm described the victim as unable to drive, do laundry, remember to perform basic hygiene practices or write much more than her own name.


However, she said, a Westville police officer discovered the woman and Jackson, then 51, having sex in a van parked at a baseball field on March 5, 2017.

According to Boehm, the victim had been told not to tell anyone about the reported sexual encounters she had had with Jackson.

“The state’s position is that (victim) could not consent due to her disability,” Boehm told the jury.

Craig Braje, Jackson’s defense attorney, confirmed that Jackson and the woman were approached by an officer at a baseball field. However, he said, the officer only saw movement in the van and not sex, and felt satisfied with their conversation enough to allow the two to leave the scene together.

The state alleges a sexual relationship between Jackson and the victim existed from February 2013 through March 2017, but Braje said no evidence exists to prove such a claim.

He described how Jackson and the woman met: At the home of one of her relatives, who also was friends with Jackson. The man reportedly hosted multiple parties to which both were invited, as well as several other guests.

Braje indicated it was the victim’s mother who had asked Jackson to spend time with her daughter, and take her out to do activities. But, he said, “(Victim) acted as an adult, did things as an adult, performed and had an adult lifestyle.”

According to Braje, the woman’s IQ measurements are 15 to 20 years old, and her dyslexia diagnosis doesn’t prohibit her from consenting to sex.

In fact, he said, the woman’s mother had provided her daughter with thorough sex education as a teenager, going as far as to buy the girl a vibrator when she turned 18 and take her to a male strip club and casino when she turned 21.


Additionally, the alleged victim had had previous boyfriends and had been engaged at one point in time, with her mother’s permission to have sex after she was married, Braje told the jury.

He contended the young woman was not mad at or scared of Jackson, but of the idea that she might be arrested after having been approached by the on-duty police officer. He suggested that her fear of arrest is what prompted her to tell her mother about the sexual relationship she had with Jackson.

Braje told the jury that Jackson was wrong for having cheated on his wife, but said his client did not rape anyone.

“(Victim’s mother) didn’t want the sexual relationship to be with Tom Jackson, and that is understandable, but it’s not criminal,” Braje concluded.

According to court documents, the victim has the mental and emotional abilities of a child between the ages of 10 and 12. She is expected to testify sometime on Wednesday.

Jackson resigned from the Michigan City Police Department last March after becoming the subject of investigation. He faces four counts of Level 3 felony rape in which the victim is mentally disabled or deficient, each of which carries a potential sentence of 3 to 16 years in the Indiana Department of Correction.

Pending the resolution of his case, Jackson remains free on $2,500 cash bond and GPS monitoring.

Council member, former girls basketball coach sent nude photos to student

RIPLEY COUNTY, IN (FOX19) –A Ripley County, Indiana, council member faces sex charges related to alleged misconduct while he was an assistant coach with the Jac-Cen-Del High School girls basketball team in Osgood, Indiana.

Indiana State Police arrested Chad Pindell, 36, of Napoleon, Sunday afternoon. Pindell represents Ripley County District 3 on council. His four-year term is set to expire this year, and he is up for reelection in May, according to County Clerk Ginger Bradford.

Investigators say Pindell contacted a 17-year-old Jac-Cen-Del High School student through social media early this year and sent nude photos of himself to the girl. At some point, he and the student allegedly engaged in sexual activity while at the high school.

Pindell is charged with child seduction and dissemination of harmful material to a minor — both felonies.

Police began investigating in February 2018 when they were contacted after Jac-Cen-Del Community School Corporation became aware of possible improper behavior between Pindell and a female student at the high school.

At the time, Pindell was a volunteer assistant coach for the Jac-Cen-Del High School girls basketball team. School documents show that Pindell resigned from his volunteer coach position Feb. 19.

Pindell is in Ripley County Jail without bond until he appears in circuit court.

Police say the Ripley County Prosecutor’s Office and the Indiana Department of Child Services assisted in the investigation and arrest.

Prison guards ordered transgender visitor to strip, lawsuit claims

A trans woman is suing a prison after officers allegedly demanded to see her genitals before letting her visit her brother.

In a lawsuit filed earlier this week, 48-year-old China Nelson began her case against a Louisiana state prison after she claims she was barred from entering the prison for refusing to be strip-searched.

According to NBC News, Nelson was prevented from entering the maximum security prison after a full body scanner detected an “unknown object” in her trousers.

Nelson claims that she had been approved as a visitor in Louisiana State Penitentiary for over 14 years prior to the visit in 2017, and had never been asked to strip before.



“I think this was a new machine or a new screening process,” said Galen Hair, the attorney representing Nelson in the case.

The lawsuit states that after a full body scan, a prison officer asked identified something in Nelson’s underwear. Nelson then said she was trans, using her driving licence to help explain her situation to the officer.

“When an unknown guard stated that she saw ‘something’ in Ms. Nelson’s pants, Ms. Nelson acknowledged that she was born a male as indicated on her driver’s license in an effort to explain the ‘something’ the guard stated she saw,” the lawsuit states.


However, after being escorted to a men’s bathroom by two guards, Nelson refused to strip.

The officers then reportedly told Nelson that she “would have to reveal her genitalia before being permitted to leave the premises,” and then demanded to search her car.

Nelson accepted the search of her car but once again refused to be strip-searched.

Prison officers then reportedly cancelled the entire visit, preventing Nelson’s mother and brother from visiting her other brother.

Attorney Galen Hair highlighted the rare and discriminatory nature of the incident and stated that Nelson should have been treated like any other visitor.

“Surely, the (prison) is not strip-searching every man who goes through the machine,” Hair wrote.

President of Louisiana Trans Advocates Dylan Waguespack hit out at the ways trans people are treated in prison, both in Louisiana and more generally.


Waguespack said that trans prisoners were frequently “housed incorrectly,” whilst in prison and faced abuse and harassment from officers and fellow inmates.

He described discriminatory treatment against trans people as a “widespread problem.”

Reading prison

In a letter after the incident, the deputy warden of the Louisiana prison told Nelson that she would be unable to visit the prison for six months.

The deputy warden defended the prison’s actions, writing: “Security advised you of the shakedown policy and the strip search would be based on your driver’s license.”

“Security tried to explain but you continued to interrupt.”

The deputy warden continued to say that Nelson’s visit was denied as her family members became aggressive. Nelson denies this.

According to court documents, Nelson is seeking compensation for “emotional distress” as well as asking for a court order to ban discrimination against visitors.

A Massachusetts woman made headlines earlier this month after the Massachusetts Department of Corrections refused to move her to a woman’s prison.

The unnamed woman, who has been living as female for 40 years, told her representatives that she is being forcibly strip-searched, groped and harassed after being jailed for a non-violent drugs offence in a men’s prison.
