In the Life - SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST
In the Life - SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST
NEW YORK - This month, In the Life explores how Gays and Lesbians find truth in themselves, despite the barrage of messages that often devalue LGBT experiences. Performer Billy Porter hosts this episode, entitled "Survival of the Fittest," with appearances by actors Alan Cumming and André De Shields, GLSEN Executive Director Kevin Jennings and author James Howe.

In The Life airs in Seattle on KCTS Channel 9 on Saturday, August 27 at 11:00 p.m.

LEVEL PINK

From discriminatory government policies during the McCarthy era to current policies like "Don't Ask/Don't Tell," LGBT people have long been a target by those who claim to be protecting our nation. In the Life visits Retired Rear Admiral Alan Steinman, who in December 2003 became the highest-ranking member of the military to disclose his sexuality and looks at how homophobia undermines national security and threatens that which is truly American.

BEAR TO BE BEAUTIFUL

ITL highlights the LGBT "Bear" community and explores how Bear culture challenges modern day concepts of beauty.

TIKKUN OLAM

The phrase "Tikkun Olam" is usually translated as "repairing the world" and that's exactly what rabbis Sharon Kleinbaum and Dawn Rose are trying to do. For these two women, Judaism has provided a haven and a vehicle for change.

BODY POSITIVE

ITL examines direct-to-consumer advertising in the HIV/AIDS drug industry and the aesthetic, financial, and medical questions the phenomenon has posed. AIDS activists, educators, and HIV-positive models consider who represents the face of AIDS.

ONE WOMAN PRESS

Lisa Moore has dedicated her life to telling the stories of those that have largely been absent in our history-lesbians of color. In this segment, Moore recounts her journey in becoming a "One Woman Press."

REAL TO REEL

Hijras, the Hindi word for "neither male nor female," were once a sacred class in India. In this month's "Real to Reel," ITL profiles the film Bombay Eunuch, a documentary that explores western morality's effect on this once revered group of individuals.

OUT TAKES
