I wanna thank “Inside Out” and its absolutely MAH-VA-LOUS host, Sheila Alexander-Reid! Earlier this week, I was the special guest for this insanely popular weekly radio show, which airs on WPFW 89.3FM in Washington, D.C. You can also catch Inside Out on line at WPFWFM.ORG.

Inside Out is D.C.’s only LGBT FM radio show. According to Reid, the program “tackles the tough subjects other shows deem too taboo to discuss.”

Sheila and I chatted about a variety of topics, including the annual OutWrite Book Festival, sponsored by the DC Center for the LGBT Community, to be held in Washington from August 1-3, and the Center Black LGBT Writers’ Forum–of which I’m Moderator. This Forum, to be held on Saturday, August 2, 1 p.m., is part of OutWrite.

I also read an excerpt from my new novel, Nothing Can Tear Us Apart—RAGE! You can listen to the audio for the entire “Inside Out” interview below:
