The Submission: Are gay rights civil rights?


Are gay rights civil rights? Does the LGBT rights struggle deserve the same stature as the battle for women’s rights or racial equality? A provocative play - The Submission - at New Conservatory Theatre Center in San Francisco gets into these questions and more.  Is verbal gay-bashing still more acceptable than racist comments, even here in our pro-gay Bay Area bubble?  Lead actress Sam Jackson and director Ben Randle discuss these issues and share bits from the play with host Eric Jansen on this week's Out in the Bay (broadcast Dec. 6, 2012).     (The Submission runs through Dec. 16.  Info and tickets at www.NCTCSF.org)
