Out in the Bay

Thursdays 7pm
  • Hosted by produced and hosted by Eric Jansen & Marilyn Pittman

Out in the Bay - Gay Radio from San Francisco    

Queer histories, herstories, personalities and issues are explored with humor, insight, and sensitivity each week on Out in the Bay.  We've been called “the gay Fresh Air” and even "the gay Tavis Smiley." We’ve interviewed such celebrities as film directors Ang Lee and John Waters, comedians Margaret Cho and Marga Gomez, singers Leslie Gore and Michael Feinstein,  actors, authors and more.  We’ve also featured historians, scholars, and activists -- including Phyllis Lyon and the late Del Martin -- with compelling stories about the reality of LGBT life.

During a long, debilitating illness doctors failed to diagnose, author Gabrielle Glancy had enough energy to save Facebook screenshots, but not enough to write.  The award-winning poet and nationally known college admissions expert later wove them into a book about her ordeal. I'm Already Disturbed Please Come In: Parasites, Social Media & Other Planetary Disturbances (A Memoir, of Sorts) critiques  Western medicine and social media, and examines love in sickness and in health.  Gabrielle Glancy is Eric Jansen's guest on Out in the Bay, 7pm Thursday, July 2.* Hear her read from her book and talk about the issues it raises.

Gay Semiotics is a set of two dozen iconic photographs with embedded text, presented as a tongue-in-cheek anthropological essay on the codes of sexual orientation and identification in 1970s San Francisco. They’re on view through June 27 - for the first time in San Francisco since 1977 - at Ratio 3 gallery, 2831A Mission St.

Psychology professor Gayle Pitman's children’s book This Day in June, a picture book about Pride parades, helps parents and teachers introduce sexual orientation concepts to very young kids.  The appended reading guide gives adults high points of LGBT culture and history.  It won the American Library Association's 2015 Stonewall Award and the International Reading Association's Notable Books for a Global Society Award. In this interview with Out in the Bay host Eric Jansen, Pitman reads This Day in June -- all 63 words! -- and talks about the differences between writing for academics and for toddlers. Pitman, who teaches the psychology of sexual orientation and other subjects at Sacramento City College, says she finds today’s queer college students largely ignorant ofLGBT history and is doing what she can to fix that. 7pm Thursday, June 11, 2015. (First broadcast 6/26/14)
