This special episode was recorded on Saturday, November 6, live at the Soulforce Symposium in Philadelphia! While Peterson is milling about reconnecting with his ex-ex-gay brethren, Zack conducts two interviews. First up is sexologist and ex-gay survivor Jallen Rix and he wants you to feel very comfortable with your body! Then, we hear from JMU professor Christine Robinson, who, with her colleague Sue Spivey, has produced some compelling research about the harms of the ex-gay movement. Their most recent publication demonstrates how the tactics of the ex-gay movement constitute four of the five forms of genocide identified by the United Nations. After these two very different interviews, Peterson rejoins Zack for a brief reflection on the very long day. Please leave your comments and questions!
