While the Outward team makes the most of Pride Month, we have a special treat for you, the first episode of Slow Burn: Gays Against Briggs.  —  In the 1970s, San Francisco became a welcoming home for tens of thousands of new gay residents—and a modern-day Sodom for the American right. With a moral panic sweeping across the United States, a Florida orange juice spokeswoman inspired an ambitious California politician to launch his own campaign against lesbians and gays—one that would change the course of U.S. history.

outward podcast: "no one is gay enough"

So much hate towards Pete Buttigieg for not being gay enough, proud enough, or flamboyant enough. Everyone has their own opinion, and rightfully so, but it is disappointing that this queer podcast only wants to discuss how this historic candidate is simply not gay enough and denied his inclinations for too long solely to further his career. So what if he did? Good for him for finally being able to be his true gay self with confidence and political success. Not a reason to hate on the guy. Again, this podcast is an outlet for your opinion but ya'll have been a bit harsh towards someone representing a huge step forward in the prominence held by a gay US politician. I mean, being gay was still a punchline in pop culture not long ago and LGBTQ youth are STILL dying because of who they are. You don't have to like him or his politics, but I wish you could recognize that there is no precedent for an openly gay person running for the most powerful position in the country. It is a big deal.
