Paul Corbit Brown (left) was driving to work in 1993 when he came across a local radio station on which he heard the host saying terrible things about homosexuals. Bothered, he pulled off the road, found a payphone, and called the station. He ended up spending hours with the host on the air. Paul tells his brother John (right) about how this was the moment he found his voice.
