Outbeat News In Depth – March 24, 2013

On the eve of the United States Supreme Court hearings on Proposition 8 and the Federal Defense of Marriage Act, we talked with straight ally and marriage equality activist, Zach Wahls. Zach earned world-wide attention after his passionate testimony before the Iowa Legislature. Since that time, he’s become involved in the Boy Scouts discrimination controversy and continues to be an incredible ally for LGBT equality.

Devon Yaffe is a 17-year-old high school senior from Southern California who produced a documentary for his senior project titled, “Overcoming Adversity As A Gay Teen One Generation At A Time.” Devon talked about his motivation for the project and what it was like talking to people between 15 and 82 years of age about their coming out stories.

Members from Sonoma County’s premier LGBT Youth Organization, Positive Images, were with us to share stories and poetry included in this year’s “Images” publication. This is an annual publication featuring creative work from Positive Images youth members.
