EP. 455 — 455: Billy Graham in Statuary Hall, State of HIV Stigma, #MedBikini

On this week’s Throwing Shade, Bryan and Erin discuss the decision to replace a statue of a white supremacist governor with that of infamous evangelist Billy Graham in the US Capitol’s Statuary Hall. Then, they get into a new study examining the continuing stigma against those living with HIV, and later Erin talks about a retracted manuscript identifying “inappropriate” and “unprofessional” behavior by young surgeons and how it plays into the larger current of gender discrimination in the medical field.
