WBAI Radio: Gays & Iran Debate, 9/18 @ 11 AM ET
This alert came my way tonight from the good folks at Gay City News, New York's premier gay weekly and a paper that has provided a much-needed forum not only about gays in Iran and the hanging of two gay teens in 2005, but also a must-read publication that breaks many stories on gays around the world, thanks to the writings of Doug Ireland.
Scott Long, who directs the LGBT rights effort at Human Rights Watch, Paul Schindler, editor in chief of Gay City News, and others discuss and debate the situation facing gays in Iran, and how Western activists can best be helpful in a one-hour live program on WBAI radio, which is the New York City affiliate of Pacifica Radio. Brad Taylor hosts the program.
Tune in: 11 A.M., EASTERN DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME, Monday, September 18.
The program can be heard in NYC at 99.5 FM and is also streamed live on WBAI.org, and the live streaming option is at the upper right hand side of the WBAI home page. The program will also be available for some number of days afterward on the WBAI archives, which can also be accessed from the station's home page.
