Gay Semiotics – a photo trip to the 1970s

R3HF026 A_Salesman

Gay Semiotics is a set of two dozen iconic photographs with embedded text presented as a tongue-in-cheek anthropological essay on the codes of sexual orientation and identification in 1970s San Francisco. They’re on view through June 27, for the first time in San Francisco since 1977, at Ratio 3 gallery, 2831A Mission St.

     Eric Jansen’s guests on this week’s Out in the Bay are gallery associate director Theo Elliott and photographer Hal Fischer, whose photos captured a pivotal moment in the city’s history – a liberating period before the assassinations of Harvey Milk and George Moscone and the devastation of AIDS. Coupled with the gallery exhibit is a re-installation of Fischer’s full-size billboard A Salesman – a reclining male nude with black bar over the eyes and a large phone number – now on display at Ratio 3 through June 27 and outdoors on Market Street between Guerrero and Octavia through June 28. 

     Hear the conversation 7pm PDT Thursday, June 18, on kalw.org + 91.7fm SF or later at link below. While you listen, see more of Fischer’s photos.

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.
