The Queer Caucus

Episode 18: The Grass is Always Queerer

April 24, 2018

In this episode, Jill and Cassidy review the hit new gay teen romcom, "Love, Simon." This discussion of the movie protagonist's coming out story prompts a discussion of our own personal journeys out of the closet, and our relative thoughts and feelings on these experiences. Finally, we introduce a noteworthy organization - Gays Against Guns - and discuss the LGBTQ teens involved with the March for Our Lives movement to ponder the question: "Is gun control an LGBTQ issue?"

Many thanks to Frankie Simone, for our music, and Batsheba Castro-Martinez, for our artwork and logo.
