Commemorating a historic week of queer activism

Jul 14, 2015
Die-in, Downtown San Francisco

 

Pink Saturday is a huge street party that takes place every year on the night before the San Francisco Pride Parade. Thousands of people from all over the Bay Area and the country come out to dance in the streets of the city’s Castro District. But how many know the history behind the celebration?

 

  

7pm Thursday, meet Cheyenne Jackson -  in his own words, "AmFAR's bitch."  He's an award-winning Broadway actor, movie star, songwriter and singer who tonight and tomorrow sings classic film songs in “Hello Gorgeous!” Cheyenne Jackson Goes to the Movies with the San Francisco Symphony. On tonight's Out in the Bay, a sampling of his music -- including a short a cappella in-studio special just for us -- and he talks about his creative and activist passions.

"The End of San Francisco" -- according to Mattilda

Aug 27, 2013

  

Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, the provocative, angry, queer anti-assimilationist writer, is back on Out in the Bay, 7pm Thursday, with her latest ... manifesto? Or memoir?  (Even though she’s only 40) In The End of San Francisco, Mattilda deals with family, incest, gay sex work, the digital ruination of our City by the Bay, political correctness and its stifling effect on activism and even just talking with one another, and much more. Join Mattilda and host Eric Jansen for another, in Mattilda’s words, “delicious conversation” about life, struggles, triumphs -- ours and the cities we live in.
