Featured programs on KBCS

WED – June 5th – A Different Kind of Coming Out: A ‘Nancy’ Pride Special

Coming out means taking a risk and sharing something deeply personal with another person. In this hour-long episode of Nancy, the critically acclaimed podcast about the queer experience, hosts Tobin Low and Kathy Tu bring you three stories about different kinds of coming out. We hear from two gay men of different generations about what it’s like to disclose their HIV status, a young woman who tracks down the queer role model she didn’t know she needed, and a young man trying to save his father’s life, even if it means a painful confrontation.

WED – June 12th – America Learn Your History: What Happened Before Stonewall

“America, Learn Your History” began as a popular Instagram series by composer and professor Bobby Wooten. Join us for our first radio special: Stonewall often gets credit for the beginning of the gay liberation movement. But there was an earlier riot, at Compton’s Cafeteria in San Francisco, and it was started by a transwoman. Bobby’s guests include actor Tituss Burgess and historian Dr. Susan Stryker

WED – June 19th – Black, Queer & Free: Living at the intersection of Blackness and Queerness

Stories about the joys – and challenges- of living at the intersection of Blackness and Queerness

WED – June 26th – Beyond Stonewall: From Power to Pride

A conversation with Gary Bailey, Larry Kessler, Sue Katz, Michael Bronski, Stephanie Burt, and Maura Healey about the LGBTQ movement, looking back 50 years to the Stonewall Uprising.


Be sure to TUNE IN to the weekly broadcast of THIS WAY OUT – LGBTQ News and information Tuesdays at 5am. Excited to have this program in our regular line up for our listeners and the community.
