Anti-gay hostility is as pervasive as ever, despite the growing visibility of gay men and lesbians in American culture, according to a major new report out this month.

People for the American Way, a Washington DC advocacy group, says in their most recent state-by-state report on anti-gay activity that institutional anti-gay activity and bigotry has actually increased over the number of incidents reported in 1996.

Guests:
• Matthew Freeman, the senior vice president of People for the American Way, a group based in Washington, DC that defends civil rights, and promotes religious freedom and respect for diversity.
• Nancy McDonald, the president of Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbian and Gays (or P-Flag) an education and advocacy organization that supports families and friends of lesbians and gays.
