Meet California State Senator Mark Leno


State Senator Mark Leno is the first openly gay man to serve in California’s Senate.  A champion of LGBT rights throughout his career, Leno is far from a ‘single-issue’ politician. As he approaches his last year in the Senate — he’s termed out in 2016 — hear Leno chat with Out in the Bay host Eric Jansen about his political priorities, his thoughts on what’s next for LGBT rights and, after representing San Francisco for more than a decade, his views on the state of our city and how we can meet our challenges. Leno also shares stories from his past, including his time in rabbinical school. Airs 7pm PDT Thursday,  Aug. 13, at kalw.org + 91.7 fm SF Bay Area; listen after broadcast at www.OutintheBay.org.
