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.

'God Loves Uganda' tracks US evangelists' anti-gay fervor to Africa

  

God Loves Uganda is a new feature-length documentary about the influence of U.S.-based evangelical Christian missionaries who have been whipping up anti-gay religious fervor in Uganda for many years.  Uganda’s parliament is still considering a proposed Anti-Homosexuality Bill that, even though the death penalty has been removed from it, would still be one of the most punitive anti-gay measures in the world. The link that God Loves Uganda shows between religious extremists in this country and the virulent homophobia in Uganda is chilling and creepy.  Filmmaker Roger Ross Williams visited KALW studios to play film clips and talk about his journeys to Africa and Missouri to make this documentary with Out in the Bay's Eric Jansen.

'Hate Speech' - for Piano and Audience Cell Phones

program audio

Out in the Bay host Eric Jansen talks with New York pianist, activist and “modern music evangelist” Adam Tendler. His composition "Hate Speech," for piano and audience cell phones, has its West Coast premiere this Saturday. It’s a protest piece dedicated to the memory of Matthew Shepard, with whispered words culled from a Tea Party politician's Facebook page. Adam Tendler performs "Hate Speech" and other pieces Saturday night in Modern Piano Lineages, a concert at San Francisco's Center for New Music with KALW Revolutions Per Minute host Sarah Cahill.

Adam joined Eric live in KALW studios to talk about "Hate Speech," modern music, and his memoir about coming out during his "88x50" piano recital tour of every state in the U.S.A.  And, in an Out in the Bay exclusive, he played live in our studio on a cheap Casio electronic keyboard to demonstrate the intricacies of a rarely-performed Philip Glass composition,"Two Pages," he'll play Saturday. Modern Piano Lineages, featuring Adam Tendler and Sarah Cahill, starts 8pm, Saturday, Oct. 19, at the Center for New Music, 55 Taylor St., San Francisco. Click here for concert info

Big thanks to Virgin America for changing Adam’s flight to SFO without extra fees so that he could be here for Thursday’s interview.
