This week on the Campbell Conversations, host Grant Reeher speaks with two researchers who believe they have discovered a productive way to talk to citizens about same-sex marriage and other LGBT rights issues. Melissa Michelson and Brian Harrison are co-authors of a new book titled Listen, We Need to Talk:  How to Change Attitudes about LGBT Rights.  Their conversation explores how public views about same-sex marriage, and LGBT rights more generally, have changed over time, as well as the current debate over transgender access to public facilities and other gender-specific entities.
