Is Taylor Swift a true ally or is she just using Pride to sell albums? In this episode we take a look at Taylor's controversial new single "You Need to Calm Down" and its related video. Is it a genuine, albeit clumsy attempt to show support for the LGBTQ community? Or is it merely a straight cis person trying to use Pride to sell more records?

Should Pride Include Cops and Corporations?

Should Pride parades ban police from marching or being involved with the parades? What part should corporations be allowed to play in Pride celebrations? In this episode we explore the question of whether some organizations should be dis-invited to Pride celebrations. 

A group called the Reclaim Pride Coalition announced in May that it will mark the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots with a separate march. Reclaim Pride’s Queer Liberation March will begin 2.5 hours before the official parade on June 30, and will not allow either corporate or police contingents. 

Here is an article about the NYPD apology for their actions that led to the Stonewall Riots.
