While religous belief and expression is a comfort to some, for others it can create confusion, misery and chaos.  Such is the experience of many queer people who were raised Mormon.  For this membership drive special of Out Loud, hear the stories of queer identified folks who come from a culture dominated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  We'll hear the story of Joseph Dallin, who wrote a book (avalible to new and renewing members) about his experiences.  How did Joseph and others cope with being members of a church that has spent millions of dollars fighting LGBT equality?  H

On this episode of Out Loud, we looked at a controversial, maligned and explosive topic within the medical and scientific community.  There is actually a small movement of people who question the existence of HIV and AIDS.  Many within the movement refer to themselves as dissidents, skeptics, or AIDS Rethinkers, while others call them AIDS Denialists.  Tonight you will hear from David Crowe, the president of Rethinking AIDS.  I also spoke with Brian Foley, a scientist with the National Institute of Health and a member of AIDS Truth, a website devoted to debunking the claims of so-called AIDS Denialists.  Later in the show, we’ll hear from Michael Kaplan, the executive director of the Cascade Aids Project.
