On Contact: Censorship And Criminalizing Love

On the show this week, Chris Hedges talks to author Naomi Wolf about the bitter legacy of the British and Western colonialism of rampant homophobia, so virulent that people to this day are murdered for being gay in countries such as Egypt or Uganda.

Naomi Wolf in her new book, ‘Outrages, Sex, Censorship, and the Criminalization of Love’, examines through the life of the British poet and gay activist John Addington Symonds how imperial power used, and uses, rigid sexual stereotypes as tools for repression and social control.
