On this special Outbeat Extra, we talked with Shane Windmeyer, the executive director of Campus Pride, the nations leading LGBT advocacy organization supporting college and university students and staff. Shane shared some advice for LGBT students who are heading off to college this month, perhaps leaving home for the first time. He also talked about Camp Pride, the only national leadership training camp for LGBT student leaders. Shane also talked about the Campus Pride Campus Index, which can help high school students search for the perfect LGBT friend college.
We also talked with film maker Ron Rogers about his new documentary about the life of local singer-songwriter Bobby Jo Valentine. This new documentary premiered this month at Santa Rosa Junior College in Petaluma and is being featured at the Wine Country Film Festival in September.
