As Crystal Meth takes an ever bigger toll on LGBT Americans, OutCast asks why we aren't talking more about it in Austin....and what resources are available in the Austin community to stop it?
OutCast welcomes Dr. Jane Maxwell, a senior research scientist with the Center for Social Work Research at the University of Texas at Austin, where she is director of the Center for Excellence in Epidemiology in the Gulf Coast Addiction Technology Transfer Center. Her specialty is monitoring alcohol and drug abuse patterns and trends in the U.S. and internationally. One of her most recent publications is on drug trends and increasing HIV/STD risk factors along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Also joining us is Scott Colyer,LCSW, a psychotherapist in private practice in Austin.

We take a look back at some of the week's headlines in the world of LGBT news...everything from the Austin Independent School District pulling the plug on a production of "Rent"...to the uproar over the golden arches...turning pink? Chuck Smith joined us in the studio to discuss the week that was.
All that, plus essayist Douglas Plummer's pilgrimage to P-Town, and why it's SO much harder...with a cane.
