Pleasure Studies

When the outside world is at odds with our very humanity, everyday life is an endless threat, one that requires constant self-protection. In “I’m Not Running Away,” we meet three people who spent much of their lives hiding their truth, then confronted their fear and courageously stepped from the shadows. Guests include transgender advocate and triathlete Chris Mosier (the first known trans athlete to join a U.S. national team different from his birth-assigned gender), immigration activist Angy Rivera (a Colombia native who fled for New York as a child and later founded a groundbreaking advice column for fellow undocumented immigrants), and thespian Lisa Dwan (an Irish stage actress who suffers from debilitating panic attacks and stage fright).
