WBAI's LGBT Pride Special Sunday
Sunday, June 30, 2013 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Celebrating a year of massive advances for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community, and broadcast as tens of thousands march through the streets for the City's annual LGBT Pride Parade, Out-FM will explore those victories (as well as continuing challenges).
We'll share LGBT voices you aren't hearing elsewhere on Pride, from an audio documentary in which leading LGBT thinkers and activists discuss how to prevent the kind of violence against LGBT people we've seen so much of recently in New York, to popular out writer Sarah Schulman discussing her latest award-winning books, to intimate portraits of LGBT people doing important work around the world, to AIDS activists organizing in the 32nd year of the ongoing epidemic.
Mixing politics with celebration, Out-FM will also run in-depth interviews with out writers, artists, and entertainers.
Sprinkled throughout the six-hour Pride Special will be live dispatches from the parade, LGBT comedy sketches, and pre-recorded street interviews from this year's Dyke March, the TransJustice Day of Action, and the Drag March.
Throughout the day, there will also be free tickets for listeners to some of the best LGBT-themed theater in the city.
