It was meant to be a typical brief interview ………then this happened

It was a pretty normal Saturday afternoon on Sydney talk back radio with Glenn Wheeler’s regular guests talking about sports, gardening and cooking.  But this Saturday afternoon the generally conservative audience heard about homosexuality.

What was meant to be 5-10 minute interview turned out to be far more. Something happened, the switchboard lit up with callers and the planned schedule got panned. We talked about a wide variety of topics such as, Mardi Gras, gay pride,  why people talk gay, being gay in a straight marriage, why do gay people have to flaunt their sexuality, do people choose to be gay, sexual abuse and situational homosexuality to name a few.

Radio presenter, Glenn Wheeler, said it was one of the most defining interviews of his career.

 

A couple of days later Glenn attended the A Life of Unlearning book launch and talked about the impact the interview had on him personally. You can listen to that below.
