But first… The R.Kelly trial.. It’s happening. And it is a lot. Flipping the script, HBO’s The White Lotus starts a really great conversation around race, it really only scratches the surface – does white hubris in the writers room strike again? Netflix’s Pray Away documentary dives into the history, and truth around conversion therapy how it sky rocketed, the queer people who started it, and the horrifying facts around it, and how it has rebranded today.
