Jason Howell is trying to create a safe haven for queer Austinites struggling with addiction. Jason is the founder of SoberHood, and he's in the studio to discuss Lone Star Sober House, the first sober-living facility in Austin specifically designed to be welcoming to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people working to stay clean and sober. Jason is joined by Pancho, a current resident at Lone Star Sober House.

Also in the studio is Stewart Gallas, a licensed professional counselor and social work associate, who is here to tell us why the holiday season may be especially tough for LGBT families struggling with addiction.

Plus, OutCast essayist Douglas Plummer shares with us a moving story of holiday generosity.
