We discuss Mike Pence's background and political beliefs; and hear a very recent interview with John Waters.

We'll be talking with Indiana queer activist JJ Gufreda about Mike Pence, Vice-President-elect, and his history of anti-LGBTQ legislation and actions as Indiana governor, and in the years prior to his taking office. There's a lengthy list of ways that Pence has found, to make LGBTQ unwelcome and unsafe in Indiana. Fortunately, activists have pushed back whenever possible.

JJ Marie Gufreda is the author of Left-Hander in London:  A Field Guide to Transgenders, Lesbians, Gays and Bisexuals - In the Family, On the Job and In the Pew and is a playwright and performer. Her new productions are, Left-Hander in London – The Earthquake and Left-Hander in London – The Cabaret. JJ is the President of the Indy Rainbow Chamber of Commerce and is a frequent speaker on Diversity, Religion and Political issues. She is the President of GEI and has been in consulting for over thirty years. JJ is married and has three children and four grandchildren.


Then we'll hear SW Conser's very recent interview with John Waters! Waters will be appearing at the Aladdin Theater in early December.
