Managing Grief

Jan 1, 2015

How do we cope with the death of a spouse or lover? Or of a parent or sibling with whom we had a troubled relationship?  What particular challenges do LGBT people face in grieving? Surveys show that most Americans consider the loss of someone’s unmarried partner less traumatic for the survivor than the loss of a wife or husband. Where does that leave gay men and lesbians whose partners die? Bereavement experts say many minorities suffer "disenfranchised grief" - grief not fully recognized by society. On this week's Out in the Bay (7pm Thursday), Eric Jansen and guests discuss these and other aspects of grief and loss.  (First aired March 27, 2014; re-broadcast 7pm PST January 1, 2015)

Discussion on Defense of Marriage Act and its impact on LGBT bi-national couples.

In 1967 the landmark Supreme Court case Loving vs. Virginia made the United States a better place for many people in love. The ruling declared the 1924 Racial Integrity Act, which prohibited marriage across racial boundaries, unconstitutional. If not for Loving vs. Virginia, Robyn Raber Luna would not have been able to marry her Filipino husband and then have their daughter, Rachel Luna Hemmer.
