Strange Fruit: Does Your Mama Know?

This week we launch our newest podcast, Strange Fruit: Musings on Politics, Pop Culture, and Black Gay Life. Our hosts are Dr. Kaila Story and Jaison Gardner. Our first episode, "Does Your Mama Know?" looks at the coming out process for LGBT people of color. We start with a roundtable discussion with young people who have come out to their families. Later in the show, we talk to some mamas about their reactions to their children coming out, then talk with Lisa C. Moore, editor of Does Your Mama Know?: An Anthology of Black Lesbian Coming Out Stories.We've got some good stuff planned for the coming weeks, including Pride Week at UofL, and the AIDS Walk in Louisville. You can keep up with us on Facebook and Twitter, and we welcome your feedback. We'll post a new episode each Saturday; stay tuned!
