Shayle Matsuda is a graduate student studying sea slugs at the California Academy of Sciences. Out of the lab, he creates research experiences for high school students and hosts an interactive happy hour series at San Francisco’s El Rio bar called “Science, Neat.” He draws by hand, water-colors, and uses digital media to make science more accessible. (His hand-drawn “Science, Neat” whale skeleton illustration is above.)  Matsuda is transgender, and at a Bay Area Science Festival event Oct. 28, he will talk about the challenges and rewards of being in transition while in the close quarters of a scientific expedition. He shares these and other highlights of his personal journey and his passion for science on this week’s Out in the Bay with host Eric Jansen.  7pm Thursday, Oct. 23, 91.7 FM + kalw.org

Powerful Memoir: ‘Riding Fury Home’

Chana&Gloria1972

Chana Wilson grew up in the 1950s with a suicidal mother. She learned in adulthood that her mother had been a closeted lesbian given psychiatric treatments – including electroshock – to “cure” her. Mother and daughter developed a deep bond when both came out as lesbians in the women’s and gay liberation movements of the late 1960s and ’70s. There’s much more to this touching, fascinating story in Riding Fury Home, Chana’s memoir. Marilyn Pittman hosts. Out in the Bay, Thursday, September 25, 2014

Supersurvivors – Growing from Adversity

SuperSurvivors

What does it take to bounce beyond trauma? David Feldman, co-author of Supersurvivors: The Surprising Link Between Suffering and Success, talks with host Eric Jansen about post-traumatic growth. It’s a topic Feldman finds particularly relevant to LGBT people, as “so many of us have faced significant loss, trauma, and other adversity during our lives, yet often find ways to thrive and build community.”  We’ll also hear powerful music from young lesbian pop sensation Mary Lambert, a singer-songwriter whose lyrics often deal with trauma. Hers include being raised in a strict Pentecostal household, being molested repeatedly by her father, abusing drugs before being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and surviving a gang rape at 17. Hour-long broadcast starts 7pm Thursday, Sept. 11 on kalw.org + 91.7fm SF Bay Area.
