How did San Francisco become such a gay mecca? Was it the Gold Rush? Post-prohibition liquor laws? The bar scene? Marilyn Pittman talks with Nan Boyd, chair of women’s studies at San Francisco State University and author of “Wide Open Town: A History of Queer San Francisco to 1965.” A special rebroadcast in celebration of the 10th Anniversary of Out In The Bay (come to our Party on April 29th!) on KALW. Thursday, April 9th, 2015, at 7pm Pacific and kalw.org.
We’re proud to be honored by the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association‘s Northern California chapter.
At its annual Fall Honors event in San Francisco’s Cafe du Nord Nov. 14, the organization presented Eric Jansen and Marilyn Pittman Excellence in Journalism Awards for their “tireless efforts to tell the stories of LGBTQ people in the weekly radio program Out in the Bay.”
