Outrage, written and directed by Kirby Dick, tackles the hypocrisy of closeted politicians who promote anti-gay legislation. On today’s show Kirby discusses the closeted Florida Governor Charlie Crist who a month ago came out as a Democrat but still refuses to come out of the closet. Crist is scheduled to speak tomorrow at the Democratic convention despite the fact that when he was governor Crist supported some of America’s most draconian anti gay legislation. Kirby’s new film, The Invisible War, chronicles the epidemic of rape in the Armed Forces.
