Episode 4.1: Rethinking Sodom: The Bible and Queer Sexuality

It’s time to grab your chocolate again, as in this episode (which is a cutout from last week’s binegativity episode), Bethany talks about everything that is wrong with all of us disgusting (homo/bi/pan/a/…) sexual humans – according to religious bigots. But don’t despair! She then deconstructs everything and tells these zealots why THEY are wrong.

All we have is chocolate, ladies.
