368: The Cher Show, Tumblr Bans Porn, Rania Youssef

Erin skypes in and Bryan shares a celebrity encounter at The Cher Show on this week’s Throwing Shade! First, Bryan discusses the decision by Tumblr to ban pornography and explicit adult content and why it’s just the latest in a series of turns complicating the lives of sex workers and the LGBTQ community as a whole. Then, Erin takes us through the rollercoaster ride of Egyptian actress Rania Youssef, whose perfectly normal dress on the red carpet at a film festival in Cairo spurred legal action on the grounds of ‘inciting debauchery.’
