Today, we'll be talking with Adrian Shanker, editor of the newly-released and critically-acclaimed book, Bodies and Barriers: Queer Activists on Health. Adrian is Executive Director of Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center in Allentown, PA. An accomplished activist and organizer for LGBT health equity, Adrian has developed numerous health promotion campaigns to advance health equity through behavioral, clinical, and policy changes. 


Then we'll hear the latest issue of radio e-zine This Way Out, covering queer & trans issues worldwide. This week, TWO discusses convulsions in the body politic over queer issues in Poland; queer participation in the Black Lives Matter movement; the explosion of Beirut; and Kamala Harris.



Music in this week's program: Crying at the Discoteque, by Swedish pop supergroup Alcaar (using music lifted from Spacer by Sheila and B. Devotion).
