Show #114 | January 23, 2016 | In this land before Gay Pride became almost a national holiday, can a flighty, 112-pound, effeminate Texan transform into one of the few, the proud, the Marines? The Pink Marine: One Boy’s Journey Through Boot Camp to Manhood is the story – full of hilarity and heartbreak – of how a teenage boy who struggles with self-acceptance and sexuality finds self-worth in Marine Corps boot camp.
