Audio from my visit to NPR/WUNC's The State of Things to discuss state of LGBT rights
UPDATE: I was on NPR/WUNC radio today at noon ET to discuss the state of the LGBT rights movement. From host Frank Stasio's writeup:
This weekend, President Barack Obama will address one of the nation's largest gay advocacy groups. Some are calling the speech Obama's biggest show of support for the LGBT community so far. On today's show, host Frank Stasio takes a look at some of the big news stories and recent legislation that could have an impact on gay rights in America. Joining the program is Greg Nevins, Senior Staff Attorney at the Southern Regional Office of Lambda Legal, and Durham blogger Pam Spaulding, who was the keynote speaker at this year's North Carolina Pride Festival. Also, actors from Burning Coal Theatre in Raleigh perform an excerpt of "The Laramie Project," a play written in response to the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard that will be read around the country to honor the 11th anniversary of the controversial hate crime.
The full audio is now available on the show's web site, or below.
I wonder if listeners were taken aback about my remark about "it's time for some pastors/politicians to get caught with their pants down at a rest stop" remark.
