"Carol Doda Topless at the Condor"

State of the Bay talks to the directors of the new documentary : "Carol Doda Topless at the Condor"; UCSF and SF Department of Public Health doctors on how they are slashing STI rates in San Francisco; dancing on buildings with the Bandaloop dance troop.

Carol Doda was the legendary San Francisco go-go dancer who broke taboos and changed our culture around sex when she first appeared topless atop a baby white grand piano at North Beach's Condor Club in 1964. Directors Marlo McKenzie and Jonathon Parker talk about their documentary, which is in theaters now.

And, we’ll speak with Dr. Stephanie Cohen and Dr. Annie Leutkemeyer about their study, Doxy/Pep that showed that taking one dose of an antibiotic after unprotected sex in men who have sex with men or trans women can help prevent chlamydia and syphilis.

Finally, we’ll learn about the vertical dance company Bandaloop, who will be performing on the side of a building- that’s right, the SIDE of a building! - at Sonoma State this Friday.
