Its reading guide gives adults high points of LGBT culture and history.&nbsp; Among other subjects, Pitman teaches the psychology of sexual orientation. She finds today’s queer college students largely ignorant of LGBT history and is doing what she can to fix that. Time allowing, she'll also talk with <em>Out in the Bay</em> host&nbsp; Eric Jansen about her forthcoming adult book <em>Fringe: </em><em>On the Edges of the Mainstream Gay Community</em>, and her award-winning past book, <i>Backdrop: The Politics and Personalities behind Sexual Orientation Research.&nbsp; </i><strong>Live interview 7pm PDT Thursday, 6/26/14.</strong><a data-mce-="" href="http://gaylepitman.com/publications.html" target="_blank" title="This Day in June"><em> Thu, 26 Jun 2014 18:17:34 +0000 Eric Jansen 45782 at http://kalw.org Teaching Toddlers About Gay Pride & Relationship Diversity Out In The Bay: Counter-Culture Diva http://kalw.org/post/out-bay-counter-culture-diva-0 <p>Dedicated to capturing the oral history of queer San Francisco, Out In The Bay host Marilyn Pittman &nbsp;interviews one of the legendary figures of the 60's, 70's, and 80's: former Cockettes member, Dolores Deluce.
