And now for today's show.

As the narrative around the shooting at the gay club in Orlando has shifted from domestic terrorism to the internalized homophobia of a (possibly) closeted Muslim man, we look at some of the other narratives surrounding the massacre fanned by the mainstream media, and examine the real history of homosexuality in Islam. Lisa Dettmer talks to Dr. Samar Habib, scholar, researcher and author of many books on sexuality in the Arab world, including Female Homosexuality in the Middle East and Islam and Homosexuality.
