Homophobia (like Jesus) isn’t just for Christians, the government can but promises not to prosecute you for sharing your sexy pics, U.K. and U.S. gay men think differently about “having sex,” the Chinese government wants to end the “tradition” of public shaming, and an Atlanta lawyer campaigns against male circumcision.
What do Anne Rice quitting Christianity, Nichelle Nichols’ counsel from Martin Luther King, Jr., and Dr. Seuss’ social commentary have in common? They’re all references from last Sunday’s Kink On Tap conversation with the inimitable political blogger Driftglass! Driftglass, whose own podcast with Bluegal is a validating listen for any liberally-minded politicos, is one of the most passionate speakers and most knowledgeable amateur political pundits we know. And if that weren’t awesome enough, he’s graciously accepting of sexual diversity even though What It Is That We Do isn’t necessarily his cup of tea. (MOAR PLS!)
Although this week’s show has been available on our Live site all week, it’s getting published now due to some serious and emotional overhead this week. Nevertheless, we soldier on and are really looking forward to this Sunday’s show—we’ll talk about the defeat of Prop 8 and its repercussions, a truly historic moment or LGBT activism. As usual, please keep submitting stories to our community links feed, and if you like what we do and have got the means, consider supporting our work with a donation or two. ‘Til next time: NO H8!
