hemorrhage_running622x349wide

Evictions, Google buses, NSA spying and “climate change” pissing you off? Eric Jansen’s guest this week is Krissy Keefer, artistic director of San Francisco’s all-women performance troupe Dance Brigade. The company’s current production, Hemorrhage: An Ablution of Hope & Despair, uses the Mission District and its eviction epidemic as a backdrop to explore local, regional and world crises – global warming, war, genocide, attacks on women and on San Francisco’s cultural core.  Hemorrhage: An Ablution of Hope & Despair, plays at Dance Mission Theater through February 15 (extended beyond original run!).  Info at www.DanceBrigade.org.  Interview airs 7pm Thursday Jan. 30 on 91.7 FM + kalw.org.

‘I … do? Um, let me think about it …’

LezKissUSS615x354

Experts help couples weigh the pros and cons of getting married by year-end. Just because it’s now legal for same-sex couples to marry in California and many other states, and the federal government must recognize those marriages, should you? There are financial advantages for some to get hitched by Dec. 31, but disadvantages for others, and there are many other potential risks and benefits. Eric Jansen’s guests are tax lawyer Chuck Teixeira and family law attorney Emily Doskow, who advises all couples to have pre-nuptial agreements. 7pm Thursday, Dec. 19, www.kalw.org +91.7 FM  SF Bay Area. (first aired Nov. 14)

Queer & homeless — not mostly ‘youth’

Q Connect620x188

Nearly 30% of San Francisco’s homeless children and adults are LGBT. That’s about double the homeless percentage of the city’s general population, according to the city’s latest survey. San Francisco holds its first-ever LGBTQ Connect, a targeted version of its Project Homeless Connect events that help low-income people find housing and a wide range of services, Monday Oct. 7.  Eric Jansen’s guests on Out in the Bay this week are Project Homeless Connect director of programs Emily Cohen and AIDS Housing Alliance/SF director Brian Basinger, who hatched the idea for LGBTQ Connect. Tune in to learn about the services offered Monday at LGBTQ Connect and for a discussion about what “homeless” means in today’s economy, why LGBT people have a particularly hard time in homeless shelters and a hard time getting services, how evictions are disproportionately affecting LGBT people, and how San Francisco and other cities are addressing these challenges.  (Live interview broadcast Oct. 3, 2013)
