"Sound Effect" is your weekly tour of ideas, inspired by the place we live. The show is hosted by KNKX's Gabriel Spitzer.

Each week's show explores a different theme, and this week, we discuss some of the different things we struggle to Come Out about.

Gabriel Spitzer discusses the stigma around mental health conditions with a member of the Seattle based group, The Stability Network.

Senior Producer Arwen Nicks interviews local teacher and activist, Yaara Zaslow about why she decided to come out as a rape survivor. (Read Zaslow's essay on the rape here.)

KNKX’s Ed Ronco finds a red-heart on a blue college campus and singer Mary Lambert talks about coming out as gay and bi-polar on a global scale.

Joining us for this week’s news panel are Rosette Royale, Alex Hudson and Rachel Lerman
