This week on Throwing Shade, Bryan discusses the case of Sylvia Ann Driskell, the self-proclaimed “Ambassador for God” who filed a suit in 2015 asking a federal judge to decide if homosexuality is an abomination. Then, Erin talks about the documentary ‘AKA Jane Roe’ and the revelations made by Norma McCorvey on her deathbed - plus, how Gloria Allred took down the sexist restaurant policy of the ‘Ladies Menu’.
