Nobody is left off the hook this week on SameSexSunday.
D. Gregory Smith returns with another great interview with the Executive Director of the Matthew Shepard Foundation, Jason Marsden, discussing hate crimes, the state of the nation-wide LGBT community, and legislative concerns for our community in the Foundation's home state of Wyoming. Both Westerners, this insightful interview will tell you why Wyoming matters.
Then our round table takes on the gruesome murder of LGBTQ activist, David Kato, in Uganda, and how it relates not only to anger-driven rhetoric here at home, but bullying right here in American schools. Learn more about "C-Street," the American connection to this horrific crime. Our panelists also take on whether or not the President's 1996 position on marriage matters, and what he did and didn't say in the State of the Union; as well as the ups and downs of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" repeal and the progress on civil unions in Hawaii.
And where's Joe?
