This round we’d like to raise a toast to the older men who have made our lives so much better over the years, both in bed and out of it. I discuss a close call I had with a right winger, and Chuck and I record our first outdoor episode – so, sorry about the occasional wind noise. Speaking of right wingers, my home state of North Carolina just passed the nation’s most aggressively anti-trans and anti-queer legislation. If you listen to this podcast and enjoy it, to some degree or another that means the legislation is anti-YOU. If you aren’t queer – which, come on, this is a safe space, you can say it – then you’re sure as hell an ally. So get informed, and get involved, and lend a hand however you can. If we love each other, that love can only make us stronger. Chuck and I are certainly considering what we can do to respond. In the meantime, check out the ACLU of North Carolina and Equality North Carolina and the fight they’ve initiated to have House Bill 2 overturned. You can follow along on social media, hashtag #WeAreNotThis. I tried starting an additional hashtag of #ScrewYouIfYouAre, but it doesn’t seem to be taking off. This week’s music is “Dance in the Rain,” by Quarkstar, with full attribution in the show notes. Stick around after the outro for TWO outtakes from the show’s recording session. Now be a dear and hand me my votin’ gloves, because I’m ready to throw these bastards the fuck out.
