Outbeat News In Depth – November 24, 2013

This month our good friend Kinna Crocker and her colleague, Tate Birnie joined us to talk about a case they handled here in Sonoma County with two women who got married just a week before the Supreme Court ruled on Prop 8.  They married early, because one of the women was dying.  Kinna and Tate talked about the favorable ruling they got for the surviving spouse.  We also celebrated marriage equality coming to Illinois and Hawaii this month.

On the Outbeat Youth segment, we introduce you to Jake Stallman, a bright high school student who survived severe bullying and a death threat.  He’s fighting back and helping others who are suffering from bullying.  Jake was this year’s recipient of the Spirit of Matthew award from the Matthew Shepard Foundation.

Outbeat News In Depth – April 28, 2013

"Invisible"LGBT youth account for a majority of the runaway and homeless youth living on the street today. Tragically, some of these young people become victims of human trafficking as prostitutes working for organized groups that travel through Santa Rosa and the greater Bay Area. This month, Santa Rosa Police Detective Chris Mahurin joined us to talk about this growing crime problem and how he is working with various organizations to protect these vulnerable young people.

She shared her coming out and transition story with us. What a great role model.
