The Art & Queerness of Burning Man

On Thursday's Out in the Bay (7pm PDT 8/20) Eric Jansen's guests are Jennifer Raiser and Sidney Erthal, writer and photographer, respectively, of the book Burning Man: Art on Fire; and Foxy, past mayor of Camp Beaverton, the main lesbian camp in Burning Man's "gayborhood." (This interview first broadcast Aug. 14, 2014)Burning Man: Art on Fire (Race Point Publishing, 8/8/14) is available on Amazon.com, BarnesAndNoble.com, and at many independent bookstores in the Bay Area and elsewhere.
