We kick off with extraordinary news of an Olympic Track athlete bravely coming out of the closet, while another is controversially declaring he’s “cured” of being gay through Jesus. In Rhode Island, the governor takes a stand to protect citizens with HIV from discriminatory insurance practices, ensuring access to vital medications. The hosts also delve into the challenges faced by gay Trump supporters who find acceptance elusive within the queer community. Plus, the Pope has ousted an Archbishop notorious for his anti-LGBTQ+ rhetoric, and a federal judge has blocked President Biden’s healthcare discrimination ban, presaging more legal tussles.
