Out in the Bay

Thursdays 7pm
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.

Taxing Topic: DOMA hits same-sex couples right in the assets!

Inequality hits LGBT people right in the assets. Remember all the hype about the “marriage penalty”?   Actually, most of the penalties come if you cannot marry. Legal inequities -- especially the federal Defense of Marriage Act -- allow or even require discrimination in taxes, pensions, health care, real estate and much more. At this taxing time of year, financial advisor Mark Grace (photo 2) and estate planning attorney Susan von Herrmann (photo 2) fill us in on the extra steps queer people must take to protect themselves and their families financially.
