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.

Lesbian Pulp Fiction, Career Girls, & Bruce Vilanch

program audio

While a young housewife with kids in the 1950s and ’60s, Ann Bannon was a paperback writer of lesbian love stories. Scorned by the literary elite, her and other authors’ pulp fiction helped build the gay rights movement, and reading them now gives us a historical glimpse into gay and lesbian life in those times. Monica Nolan just finished the fourth book in her Lesbian Career-Girl series, spoofs of 1960s high school girls’ career primers that humorously pay homage to lesbian pulp fiction like Ann’s from last century. They both join host Eric Jansen live tonight. We’ll also hear from comedy writer and actor Bruce Vilanch, now starring in 42nd Street Moon’s production of the 1939 musical Du Barry Was A Lady. Did you know he wrote a disco song for Eartha Kitt? You'll hear about that, too, in this special hour-long edition of Out in the Bay.

Provincetown - The Gayest Little City in the World

Sunset over Provincetown Harbor
Provincetown Tourism Office

How did Provincetown, Massachusetts, get to be so "gay, gay, gay," as the Provincetown Business Guild puts it? Let the locals fill you in. 7pm Thursday, hear from, among others, the lounge pianist who's been there 50 years, The Fabulous Dyketones founder, the activist-artist who made a dress out of tampon applicators and the town clerk who married 200 couples in one day. You'll hear about Portuguese sailors and innkeepers, fine art history, sand-filled cars, mass same-sex weddings in 2004, the dunes, "the dick dock" and more on this documentary-style romp with Out in the Bay host Eric Jansen through what is probably the gayest little city in the world - at least per capita! Airs 7pm Thursday April 24, 2014.  Edited by Nora Elmeligy and Eric Jansen from interviews conducted onsite in June 2013.

Lesbian Pulp Fiction, 21st Century Style

program audio

  

San Francisco writer Monica Nolan has just completed the fourth book in her saucy Lesbian Career Girl series. With titles like “Lois Lenz, Lesbian Secretary," “Bobby Blanchard, Lesbian Gym Teacher” and “Maxie Mainwaring, Lesbian Dilletante,” they’re spoofs of 1950s and ‘60s career primers for high school girls, and humorous homages to lesbian pulp fiction of the same era – often-maligned literature that helped build the gay rights movement. Join Nolan with Out in the Bay host Eric Jansen as they read selections from her racy fiction -- including a sneak peek from her yet-to-be-released "Dolly Dingle, Lesbian Landlady" --  and discuss how historically-set novels and film document the changes in societal norms and LGBT rights over the years. (Aired April 3)
