374: Gay Fathers Stigmatized, Surviving R. Kelly

Throwing Shade #374 January 16, 2019

Bryan struggles to inflate his tires and Erin prophesizes doom for Whole Foods on a brand new Throwing Shade! Bryan discusses a report by the American Academy of Pediatrics revealing that two-thirds of gay fathers are stigmatized despite conclusive findings that there are no differences between children raised by straight and gay couples. Then, Erin uncovers which artists have (and haven’t) spoken out about R. Kelly in the wake of the documentary ‘Surviving R. Kelly,’ which details his long history of predatory behavior, and how the story raises an important point about how society fails black women.
