Queer Questions, Straight Talk: Just in time for those family holiday gatherings, civil rights attorney Abby Dees says go ahead, ask your gay relative or friend the questions burning inside you. Like “Which one of you is the man?” If you’re queer, she says grin and bear it, encourage your loved ones to ask those awkward questions. She believes that if asking out of love, there are no stupid questions, they’re all opportunities to broaden understanding.

Hear all about it with Out in the Bay host Eric Jansen, Thanksgiving night at 7pm Pacific Time at kalw.org worldwide, 91.7FM Bay Area.
