Gay USA: SoulForce Equality Riders

This week, our guests for our last 20 minutes are two 21-year old women who just completed the third SoulForce Q Equality Ride through 15 conservative college campuses in the South. Taueret Manu of the Bronx, NY and Alex Lundy of Syosset, NY will tell us about their experiences trying to get these colleges and their students to be more open to LGBT students and to discussions about homosexuality.
