The Rise and Fall of the “Gay Gene”

Audio of my conversation with Professor Joanna Wuest

With attacks on LGBTQ+ rights exploding, I spoke to Professor Joanna Wuest about scapegoating of the LGBTQ+ community over the years and how science has helped hasten reform — even if, sometimes, the science hasn’t been so sound.

Joanna Wuest is an Assistant Professor of Politics at Mount Holyoke College and a sociolegal scholar specializing in LGBTQ+ and reproductive rights, religion, and health. Professor Wuest is the author of Born This Way: Science, Citizenship, and Inequality in the American LGBTQ+ Movement.
