We hear from Tom Gibbons, a former Philadelphia police officer, who was shot three times. We'll also hear from Eric Adams, who has marched against police brutality, and served as an NYPD officer. He was beaten by police when he was 15, and now, as a black father, he worries about his son. Mat Johnson reads an essay about what the craft of storytelling can offer us as we try to make sense of our times.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
