GLAAD nominated actress, author, and playwright Tina Alexis Allen joins Matthias to talk about her new book Hiding Out: A Memoir of Drugs, Deception, and Double Lives. Growing up as the youngest of 13 in a conservative Catholic family with an authoritarian father, Tina held a secret: she liked girls. When Tina was 18, her father accidentally discovered the truth about her sexuality. Instead of dragging her to confession and berating her with sermons about sin and damnation, her father shocked her with his honest response. He, too, was gay.
