The Queer Evangelist
This episode of The Radical Reverend features the launch of my new book, The Queer Evangelist! In The Queer Evangelist, I tell my story, from my roots as a young socialist activist in the 1960s to ordained minister in the ‘90s to member of provincial parliament. As the New Democratic member representing Parkdale-High Park in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario from 2006 to 2017, I passed more LGBTQ bills than anyone in Canadian history. I describe the behind-the-scenes details of major changes to the law, including Toby’s Law, the first Transgender Rights legislation in North America in a major jurisdiction. I also passed bills banning conversion therapy, proclaiming parent equality for LGBTQ parents, and for enshrining in Ontario law the Trans Day of Remembrance. This story of one queer kid will inspire other young people (queer and not) to resist the system and change it. With special guests Kathleen Wynne, El-Farouk Khaki + more! Signed copies are available at Another Story Bookstore in Toronto!

Law & Disorder — Free Palestine
The narrative in the mainstream media is that "tensions are erupting" between Israel and Hamas and that Israel has the right to defend itself. Palestinians are framed as the aggressors for firing rockets into Israel, and we are told the only path to peace is a two-state solution negotiated under international law. But this narrative is a propaganda campaign that serves to cover up colonization and international war crimes. Guests: David Slavick [@DavidSlavick], lawyer, political strategist and analyst, co-host of @ThePopularPod Prof. Emilio Dabed, law professor at York University in Toronto
