Meshelly George, TPE Hero of the Month for August 2012,  is committed to fighting for those who are sometimes without a voice, or are misjudged because they are different.

As the program director of IndieNation FM, the former Detroit area resident and mother or a young son, spends her time finding music for each show.  She also likes to spot local bands that are looking to make it big.  Along this route, she comes across a lot of very different people…the so-called “creatives” of our world.

She has also become a very outspoken and extremely committed advocate for the gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, transgender and she even has added another category that she calls pansexual rights.

“I am a gay rights advocate or as I like to call it, I am a human “rights”  advocate,  because regardless of gender sexuality or race, everyone’s should be protected,” George said. “ A lot of people wonder what pansexuality is, in the most basic form, a pansexual is attracted to people regardless of gender or sexuality.”

In fact, she is known as the Pansexual Punk Princess of IndieNation FM in Cleveland, OH.

George, 34,  is also very concerned about the attacks on the GLBTQP community and it’s youth.  “The GLBTQP youth have a suicide rate that is more that 2-3 higher than any other demographic, my goal is to help by loving as many people as I can, helping as many people as I can, and making sure that they have a smile and know they are loved,” George added.  One child, just one child lost is too many.”

Even though she has dated women, George has twice been married to a man and is currently in a relationship with a man as well.  She and her son, Drake, who is five, enjoy each day and she is teaching him to love everyone.

 

“I teach him and those I meet you are perfect exactly as you are, and this world is going to change, and you should be here for it, “ George said, “Don’t give up, Don’t give in. It will get better, I promise you, it will get better”

George is also seeking to get a hand transplant after she lost her hand in an accident several years ago. The operation is on hold because the doctor at the Mayo Clinic that agreed to do the transplant are requiring she know more about the accident, even though she was in a medically induced coma, and she has no memory of the incident.

“Meshelly is an awesome example of someone who has lived a lot of life at a young age and even gone through horrific things, but refuses to be bitter, “ said TPEPost.com Publisher Trish Brown. “Instead she is showing how to find inspiration in tragedy and how to use that to help others.  She is truly a awesome woman with a very large mission in life and at TPE we believe she is a hero.”
