Scott Redmond gives a straight argument for gay rights, including gay marriage, in his new book, Get Over the Rainbow: Why Everyone Should Fight for Gay Rights. Other books on this topic have been written by homosexuals, but Redmond, a heterosexual, provides a compelling and unique perspective on America''s most heated social and political debate-gay marriage.
As a radio talk show host in New Orleans, Miami, Seattle, Portland, OR, Philadelphia, and Denver, Scott Redmond (also known as "Scoot") defied his industry''s norms by passionately leading the argument in favor of gay marriage.
Redmond was born in New Orleans, where he spent his earlier broadcast years as "Scoot in the Morning" on music and talk radio. From an early age he was introduced to the openness of homosexuality in the French Quarter of New Orleans, especially during Mardi Gras. Writing this book was Redmond''s way of telling every heterosexual that it is logical to join the fight for gay rights; and letting gays and lesbians know that there''s a heterosexual aggressively fighting for legal gay marriage. As a radio personality, Redmond was embraced by the gay and lesbian community.
Redmond has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News Channel. He has contributed a column to the gay publication, OUTFRONT.
