Thom Austin – The Healing Power of Building Muscle

Ever since the Stonewall Riots ignited the modern LGBTQ+ rights movement in 1969, most major cities have had Pride Parades until the Covid Pandemic of 2020 where it was all put on pause.

Joining us today is our pal Jack Ryan, the host of The 10% Percent Show that ran on Chicago Cable Access in the late 80s and early 90s, to take a look at the changing face of Pride.
