When an individual is released from prison or jail, they are free. But are they really? Tonight, Out Loud focuses on a topic that is close to home for our queer family.

Natalie was the "Volunteer of the Year” in 2012 for the Q Center.
Jan Haaken and Mike Snedecker take a break from their usual Left and the Law MO and review a new drug-war action flick, "Snitch". It stars Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as a John Matthews, a father who goes under cover for the DEA to exonerate his son, who was himself arrested in a drug-deal set up by federal agents. They consider the truth and lies of the drug war represented by Hollywood, and how it's conservative morality may contain some gems of radical provocation.
