May 20 show: The Supreme Court and Perfect Harmony

We spoke with Paul Sousa of Equal Rep about Kathleen Sullivan, a constitutional law scholar that Equal Rep is pushing President Obama to appoint to the Supreme Court. In addition to being a highly respected expert in constitutional law, a Stanford law professor and former dean of Stanford Law School, Sullivan is also openly gay. Sousa talked about Sullivan's qualifications and why now is the time to get another woman -- and the first openly gay justice -- on the Supreme Court.

We then had some folks from Perfect Harmony Men's Chorus in our studio to talk about their upcoming concerts:
  • Monday, May 25, Memorial Day evening, at 7:00 p.m. At Capital Lakes Retirement Center.
  • Saturday, May 30 at 7:00 p.m. In Mills Concert Hall in the Humanities Building on the UW campus.

The show is called "Equal Rights, Not Special Rights" and will feature songs from civil rights movements throughout U.S. history, including abolition, women's suffrage, and gay liberation.

We're planning to do another ticket giveaway next week during Queery for the May 30 show, so listen and phone in!
