Pride School Atlanta, an LGBTQ-affirming school, closed its doors in September after two years of operations. The school's closing came amid low enrollment and financial challenges. Christian Zsilavetz opened Pride School Atlanta in August of 2016 to create a space accepting of everyone and free of homophobia and transphobia. He joined us for a conversation about the future of LGBTQ-affirming education after Pride School Atlanta.

Father's Day is this Sunday, so we handed the mic over to a dad whom we at On Second Thought know well: "Breakroom" regular Christian Zsilavetz. Zsilavetz, a queer-identified transman who co-founded Pride School Atlanta, has two daughters: Zoe and Emmalee. He and Zoe, who is exactly nine and a half years old, stopped by the studio to record a special father-daughter interview.

This week we talked about mandatory gun owernship laws, Vidalia onions and the Pulitzer Prize — and that doesn't even include the week's news. On Second Thought host Tony Harris sat down with our Breakroom panel to process everything that happened.
