Outbeat Extra – January 29, 2017

The entire Outbeat Radio team gathered for a round table discussion about the new federal administration and this post-election period.  We talked about how to sort out fact from fiction in the media, how to take care of yourself during this fearful and stressful time, some of the real threats to LGBT civil rights, and activism.

Now is not a time to sit back to “wait and see” what might happen.  LGBT people need to be “out” and involved.  Listen to our suggestions about how to connect with your community and how to get involved in this special Outbeat Extra.

Charley Walters has covered the last 8 Olympic Games for a variety of news and entertainment channels.  He stopped by to tell us all about the LGBT athletes we should watch for this year in Rio.  He also told us about what the LGBT athletes should expect in Brazil.  We will be sharing updates from Charley throughout this year’s Games, so be sure to stay connected with us for updates.  Charley also told us about Rest In Pride.  Here is a great way for you to celebrate the Olympics while honoring those who lost their lives in Orlando.

Outbeat Extra – March 29, 2015

In May of 2010, we aired a story about homophobia in law enforcement. Almost 5 years have gone by and while we would like to think things have improved, a recent investigation by the San Francisco Police Department involving 10 of its own, suggests maybe not. In this Outbeat Extra we revisited some of the interviews we did 5 years ago and hear from some new officers working in local agencies today. We also shared with you the latest research from UCLA’s Williams Institute on homophobia in law enforcement agencies around the country.
