Teaching Toddlers About Gay Pride & Relationship Diversity

program audio

Psychology professor Gayle Pitman has just published her first children’s book, This Day in June, a picture book about Pride parades, to help parents and teachers introduce sexual orientation concepts to very young kids. Its reading guide gives adults high points of LGBT culture and history.  Among other subjects, Pitman teaches the psychology of sexual orientation. She finds today’s queer college students largely ignorant of LGBT history and is doing what she can to fix that. Time allowing, she'll also talk with Out in the Bay host  Eric Jansen about her forthcoming adult book Fringe: On the Edges of the Mainstream Gay Community, and her award-winning past book, Backdrop: The Politics and Personalities behind Sexual Orientation Research.  Live interview 7pm PDT Thursday, 6/26/14.
