About the Show
Outward, Slate’s queer podcast, is a whip-smart monthly salon in which hosts and guests deepen the audience’s understanding of queer culture and politics, delight them with unexpected perspectives, and invite listeners into a colorful conversation about the issues animating LGBTQ communities.
J. Bryan Lowder is a Slate associate editor and the editor of Outward. He covers life, culture, and LGBTQ issues.
This month, Christina and Bryan are joined by writer Rumaan Alam. After Pride and Provocations, they talk about the search for the gay gene and whether the endeavor has any positive uses. Then they discuss McKrae Game, the conversion therapist who recently came out as gay, and the challenges of simultaneously feeling pity and pain about this news. Then they close it out with a usual round of the gay agenda.
