Drug and alcohol use during COVID-19 with Jack Freestone from ACON

This week we’re joined by John D’Amico, Mayor of West Hollywood, to discuss his COVID-19 diagnosis, how the coronavirus compares with HIV, and how queer people are thriving in WeHo. We’re also joined by Jack Freestone from ACON to talk about substance use during the global pandemic, including how to recognise when use becomes harmful. And in this week's After Show we pull back the curtain on the latest season of Drag Race, and share our thoughts on RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race.
