PRIDE GUIDE

Times are approximate, as with any Pride festival. And yes, that is what this is: a pride festival on the radio. Grab a beverage, pull up a blanket and feel the pride in all its permutations.

SATURDAY

1:00 ET Music

1:30 ET Alex and Dean – Gay Men Talking: The San Francisco-based happy husbands banter and bicker as they take us on a journey to San Jose for its Pride Parade and Festival, which were held in early June 2007. ( http://www.alexanddean.com )

3:00 ET This Way Out – Best of from June 2005: It’s all about taking a look back at our GLBT civil-rights past as the TWO team answers the questions What’s a Stonewall? and Who is Christopher Street? ( http://www.qrd.org/www/media/radio/thiswayout )

3:30 ET Music: Yes, that’s the original TRB classic from 1978.

Aging is an important issue for the LGBT community…

3:45 ET From the Long View Episode #1: The aging baby boomer generation is the first generation with large numbers of openly LGBT members. How will this affect institutions for the elderly? How will our health care system handle the first generation of HIV/AIDS aurvivors? How will the Stonewall generation engage with the politics of aging? We get some answers from the NGLTF’s 5-part series, which presents diverse perspectives from LGBT elders and experts on growing older. Episode #1 features Loree Cook-Daniels. ( http://www.thetaskforce.org/podcast/fromthelongview )

Also important, issues facing the young:

4:00 ET The National Radio Project’s “Making Contact” focuses on queer youth and identity.

And back to the LGBT elders:

Episode #2 spotlights Robert Spellman; Episode #3 features Barbara Satin. ( http://www.thetaskforce.org/podcast/fromthelongview )

Music

5:00 ET No self-respecting Pride festival would mount without a call to action for all involved. This one — Come Out and Win: Organizing Yourself, Your Community and Your World — comes from the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. This fascinating conference call, conducted May 22, 2007 and led by NGLTF executive director Matt Foreman, focuses on the need for and how-tos surrounding creating positive change for GLBT people in this society. Listen, and then let’s get to the work of making this a better country and world.

  1. Travis, I’m giving this some thought. This isn’t a “personal” blog, per se, so I don’t know if it would be appropriate. But let me think about it.
