Dedicated to capturing the oral history of queer San Francisco, Out In The Bay host Marilyn Pittman interviews a legendary figure of the 1960s, '70s, and '80s:  former Cockettes member Dolores Deluce.  Her memoir, "My Life, A Four-Letter Word: Confessions of a Counter-Culture Diva," made Amazon's Top 20 and is an intimate, honest look back at life in the city during its radical heyday.
