“Resist” Columns From the Bay Area Reporter

I’m very proud to be the “Resist” columnist (since July 2017)  for the Bay Area Reporter, which–besides being San Francisco’s paper of record for the queer community, is the oldest continuously published queer-owned newspaper in the United States.

The column appears every two weeks. Here are the links to the columns as well as their publication dates, from oldest to most recent.  Publication dates refer to the print edition–in most cases, the column is available online the evening before.

NOTE: Due to a recent revision of the B.A.R’s site, some of the links to the 2017 columns are out of date. I’m working with them to fix this, so thanks for your patience in the interim and apologies if any of the links aren’t functioning properly–they will be restored soon.
