Monday, 23 June 2014 | A Public Affair

Are you concerned with US Federal and State courts using biological determinism in connection with gay marriage? What do you think about the focus on gay marriage for gay civil liberties? Check out this edition of A Public Affair to learn more!

On Monday, June 23rd, our sub host Karma Chavez interviewed Suzanna Danuta Walters on her new book “The Tolerance Trap: How God, Genes, and Good Intentions are Sabotaging Gay Equality.”Walters is the Director of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and Professor of Sociology at Northeastern University.

“From Glee to gay marriage, from lesbian senators to out gay Marines, we have undoubtedly experienced a seismic shift in attitudes about gays in American politics and culture. Our reigning national story is that a new era of rainbow acceptance is at hand. But dig a bit deeper, and this seemingly brave new gay world is disappointing.” -New York University Press about “The Tolerance Trap”
