Dr. Justin Thomas, in addition to television and radio interviews, has lectured to a wide spectrum of audiences, from students and teachers, to business groups and academic societies. He has been a keynote speaker at the Canadian Mental Health Association’s Annual Convention and a special speaker at a Convention of Immigration Attorneys.
Among others, he has also spoken to a Convention of Social Workers, a Convention of Deans of Students at UCLA, an ESL Catholic Teachers’ Association, and the staff of the British Council. His seminars, lectures and workshops communicate the reality of living label-free and bridging the gender, ethnic, religious and intergenerational gaps. Justin Thomas reveals a new approach to crisis prevention and intervention, and a profoundly simple method for dissolving depression and violence, as well as awakening boundary-free emotional intelligence. He also puts a new creative perspective to stress and identity issues in family dynamics, education, work, and personal relationships.
In late 2015, Justin collaborated with several excellent musicians to create a new, remixed and restored version of the original Label Liberation Soundtrack. These new songs are part of an exciting new project from Label Liberation, and are available as a preview for you to enjoy.

Thomas first published his findings in his seminal autobiographical book, Label Liberation, or How I overcame my fear of whores, royalty, gays, teachers, yuppies, psychiatrists, athletes, transvestites, clergy, police, children, bullies, politicians, nuns, grandparents, doctors, celebrities, gurus, artists, critics, mothers, fathers, publishers, blacks, browns, yellows, reds, whites, myself and you. The book was originally published in 1979 by McClelland and Stewart, who described Justin’s autobiography as a “true and daringly naked odyssey that will shock, amuse and enlighten as it probes the startling potential of the human mind.”
