1951 San Francisco is setting for "Blackmail, My Love"

Author and artist Katie Gilmartin's "Miss Double Strand." Gilmartin wrote and illustrated "Blackmail, My Love"

Blackmail, My Love, is a new noir murder-mystery novel set in San Francisco, 1951 - "The Dark Ages of Queerdom," as author and illustrator Katie Gilmartin puts it - when cops raided gay and lesbian bars, beat up their patrons, and demanded "protection" money, and when lesbians and gay men were so afraid of exposure they were easy blackmail targets.  Eric Jansen's guest on Out in the Bay is historian, author, printmaker and Queer Ancestors Project founder

Managing Grief

How do we cope with the death of a spouse or lover? Or of a parent or sibling with whom we had a troubled relationship?  What particular challenges do LGBT people face in grieving? Surveys show that most Americans consider the loss of someone’s unmarried partner less traumatic for the survivor than the loss of a wife or husband. Where does that leave gay men and lesbians whose partners die? Bereavement experts say many minorities suffer "disenfranchised grief" - grief not fully recognized by society. On this week's Out in the Bay (7pm Thursday), Eric Jansen and guests discuss these and other aspects of grief and loss.  (First aired March 27, 2014; re-broadcast 7pm PST January 1, 2015)

Cat knows more than she can say in Pussy (the play)

Maura Halloran's Pussy is clever, quirky, and full of wit and insights into human nature that only a pussycat can have. The title character is a cat owned by a lesbian whose romance is on the rocks. Writer and actor Halloran, Eric Jansen's guest on tonight's Out in the Bay (7pm Thursday) plays both soon-to-be ex-lovers, their mildly homophobic but clearly curious landlady, and Pussy, a keen observer who knows more than she's able to say. Halloran shifts smoothly and convincingly between all four characters, and is especially delightful to watch jumping onto furniture and calmly licking herself as her 'masters' bicker long-distance.    Meet all of Pussy's characters and their creator, Maura Halloran, on Out in the Bay, 7pm PST Thursday 11/20, on kalw.org worldwide/ 91.7 fm SF Bay Area; on demand after broadcast at OutintheBay.org

The Art & Queerness of Burning Man

  

Why do tens of thousands of people trek to a temporary camp city in a remote Nevada desert every August? Is Burning Man worth the heat and dust storms? What's queer about it? On Thursday's Out in the Bay (7pm 8/14) Eric Jansen's guests are Jennifer Raiser and Sidney Erthal, writer and photographer, respectively, of the book Burning Man: Art on Fire; and Foxy, past mayor of Camp Beaverton, the main lesbian camp in Burning Man's "gayborhood."
