In the wake of the Orlando shooting where Omar Mateen targeted patrons of gay nightclub Pulse, killing 49 and wounding over 50 more, questions are finally being asked about attitudes towards homosexuality within Muslim communities.

Australian Singer/songwriter Shelley Segal (@ShelleySegal) will be dropping by this week’s #GSPodcast to play us some live music! Shelley will also be telling us all about her godless songs which can be found on her ‘An Atheist Album’ which includes a tribute to Christopher Hitchens. We also have a great discussion about her Jewish upbringing, gender segregation, Pescetarianism, attending the Secular Conference in London, ‘Sounds Of Freedom’, Maryam Namazie and much more!
