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)

“The End of San Francisco” — Mattilda

McouchClose

Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, the provocative, agitated, angry, queer anti-assimilationist writer, is back! With her latest … manifesto? Or memoir? (even though she’s just 40!) In The End of San Francisco, Mattilda deals with family, incest, gay sex work, the digital ruination of our City by the Bay, political correctness and its stifling effect on activism and even on simple conversation, and much more. Join Mattilda and host Eric Jansen for, in Mattilda’s words, another “delicious” discussion about life, struggles, triumphs — ours and the cities we live in.  7pm Pacific Time Thursday, August 29, online at www.kalw.org; over the airwaves at 91.7 FM Bay Area.

Meth, AIDS, and The Gay Guys

Gay Men and Meth Out in the Bay

In the early part of the last decade, methamphetamine use in the Castro in San Francisco was called “the second epidemic” because gay men were having unprotected sex while high. But new research from The Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes or JAIDS, shows meth use by San Francisco gay men has declined considerably. Why? Was it the public service campaign? Or a generational shift? And is it really declining or are people reluctant to tell the truth due to a stigma now? Marilyn Pittman talks with the lead author of the JAIDS study, Henry Raymond, of the SF Dept. of Public Health, and Matthew Bajko of the Bay Area Reporter. Airs 7pm Pacific Thursday March 7th.
