On this episode, playwright and director, Javier Rivera, shares his struggles with his sexual orientation, growing up in a strictly Catholic household.  Javier found a way to come to terms with his identity and express his journey through acting and the written word. One of the sources Javier mentions is the film ‘Kinsey’ (DVD) / digital version starring Liam Neeson, who portrays Alfred Kinsey and his theory of a gender-sexuality scale.


In addition, ‘Moving Forward’ listeners can get two free audio books from Audible (details here).
