In today’s 365gay column, I answer a few of the questions that have come in since I started this weekly gig:

  • Is DOMA constitutional?
  • Should we just ask Justice Kennedy what he thinks about marriage equality?
  • How can Obama be so good and so bad on LGBT issues at the same time?

My Radio Times Debate with Stacey Sobel

June 20th, 2009 No comments

Just a quick heads-up about my upcoming appearance on NPR‘s Radio Times with Marty Moss-Coane. I’ll be on this coming Wednesday, June 24.  The show broadcasts here in Philly at 10-12 am (I’m in the first hour) and several times during the day on Sirius Satellite Radio (schedule here). You can also listen to any time at

My friend Stacey Sobel and I will be debating the Obama Administration’s progress on LGBT issues. Stacey is the immediate past Executive Director of Equality Advocates Pennsylvania, and I was on the Board of Directors during her tenure. Now she’s a sought-after lobbyist here in Pennsylvania, as she prepares to start a career in legal academia in the Fall.

It appears that Stacey is somewhat more patient than I am with Obama; as a lobbyist, she’s understands the sausage factory better than most. But I don’t want to reduce what promises to be a great discussion to a sound bite (and not a very good one, at that). Listen and join the conversation — Radio Times takes callers.
