Religious Outreach to Lgbtq (#507) Duration: 26:44 STEREO TVG

The horrifying mass shooting in a gay nightclub in Orlando ignited a widespread spirit of support and outreach to the lesbian, gay, transgender, transsexual and queer communities around the world. People in many faith traditions focused more on the loss of humanity, and some began to rethink their attitudes and messages about a group of people who have been marginalized throughout mankind's history. An outspoken panel of top Bay Area religious leaders react to the mass shooting, and offer new insights on how religions can respond going forward. The panel includes: Zahra Billoo, Executive Director, Council on American Islamic Relations, San Francisco Bay Area; Rev. Saju Joseph, native of India and Pastor of St. Julie Billiart Parish in San Jose; Rev. Nancy Palmer Jones, Senior Minister, First Unitarian Church of San Jose; Rev. Jon Pedigo, Director of Projects for Peace and Justice, Diocese of San Jose; Prof. Bob Rucker, Director, SJSU School of Journalism and Mass Communications, San Jose.

Stis and Students (#508) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

Not Always A Drag (#509) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

Many people remain confused about the definition of a drag queen. Is it a job? A gender preference? Or an art form? A plethora of drag acts have emerged following the success of Rupaul's Drag Race on the Logo TV network. These performers are redefining the new face of drag. By being able to artistically and sexually express themselves drag queens have become role models for many LGBT people. Correspondent Justin San Diego show us that many of these queens face judgment, but if they can rise above it they can become a hero in their community. Hosted by Bob Rucker, Director of the San Jose State School of Journalism and Mass Communications.
