The Pink Humanist – Spring 2015

WEB_600_56The role played over many decades by black atheists in the struggle against institutionalised racism and homophobia is highlighted in a major feature in the latest issue of The Pink Humanist.

Also included in the spring 2015 edition are articles about:

  • Workplace equality, which shows that companies that have non-discriminatory employment policies tend to fare much better than those that don’t.
  • Gay marriage among Jews, and the difficulties they face if they want to marry outside the faith.
  • “Gay to straight” reparative therapy in China, and one man’s legal victory against a quack clinic.
  • Gay atheist code-breaker Alan Turing, the Imitation Game and an article by Turing’s biographer Andrew Hodges.

The issue also contains a personal account by veteran UK human rights campaigner the Imitation Game about his journey from religious superstition to rationalism.

Another item draws readers’ attention to the fascinating contents of Phil Tielmeyer’s book Plane Queer: Labor, Sexuality and AIDS in the History of Male Flight Attendants.

A column by American journalist Warren Allen Smith includes an update on same-sex marriage in the States.
