COVID, AIDS, and the LGBTQ Community

The March edition of Outward is here! In this episode, we take a moment to revisit one Pete Buttigeig (remember him?) and the divisions he exposed in the queer community. Then we turn to a discussion of the current coronavirus crises, where we're joined by HRC president Alphonso David for perspective on comparisons between this COVID and the AIDS crisis, as well as how the pandemic will specifically impact LGBTQ people. And sandwiching all that audio we've got our usual PnPs and updates the Gay Agenda -- Queerantine themed!

Changing One’s Name Has Been Difficult Since Biblical Times

January's Outward is now in your feeds! This month, we break down "exclusively gay moments" in film and television, asking if there’s any way to get them right. Then they interview Richie Jackson about his lovely new book #GayLikeMe.
