We go back to the night in June 1969 at the New York City Stonewall Inn that sparked the LGBT rights movement. On today’s show we’ll hear about the day that galvanized a generation and the continued fight for LGBT civil rights. The first Pride parades took place in June 1970 marking the 1st anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. Michael Schirker and David Isay bring us an oral history Remembering Stonewall: The Birth of a Movement. Editor at large of the Huffington Posts’ Gay Voices Michelangelo Signorile says while there have been a series of recent wins for the LGBT rights movement, bigotry remains a daily reality for many. At a New America NYC forum Signorile spoke with June Thomas, Culture Critic and Editor of Outward, Slate’s LGBTQ Section about what he calls “victory blindness”. It’s a central theme in his new book, “It’s Not Over, Getting to Beyond Tolerance Defeating Homophobia and Winning True Equality.”
La route du bled (1/3) : Rêve d’or sur le porte-bagages Quand on peut partir pour les vacances d'été au pays natal, au Maghreb, les préparatifs débutent plusieurs semaines à l'avance. On accumule de nombreux bagages. Chacun a son avis sur leur contenu, leur nombre, leur poids, mais ce qui compte avant tout, ce sont les cadeaux pour la famille ! Le grand départ se fait tôt le matin ou au coucher du soleil pour éviter les bouchons et passer inaperçus avec la montagne de bagages sur le toit couverts de la légendaire bâche bleue. La traversée de la France est l'étape la moins pénible du voyage. La fatigue n'est pas encore installée, les routes sont belles et plutôt clémentes. Pour les enfants, c'est quand même le début de la galère, on ne sait pas où mettre les pieds, avec la glacière qui prend toute la place et les sacs enfouis un peu partout. Péage de St-Arnoult, Bordeaux, Hendaye, plusieurs étapes importantes et déjà quelques (més)aventures alors qu’on n’a pas encore atteint la première frontière. La route du bled, c’est le rituel du retour au pays pour les vacances estivales au Maroc. On est dans les années 80-90, un porte-bagages chargé à bloc sur la Renault Nevada, et parfois même une remorque, avec des malles bleues et des sacs Tati qui débordent. Une brochette d’enfants sur la banquette arrière qui se disputent la place dans le coffre pour piquer un somme tranquille. Une maman qui cuisine sur le butagaz dans les aires de repos et qui refuse de fermer l’œil de peur que son mari s’endorme au volant. Des affiches d’interdiction de se laver les pieds dans les lavabos des stations-services espagnoles (ablutions non désirées !). Tout ça sur des routes sinueuses et denses (les autoroutes espagnoles n’étaient encore qu’un rêve), sans GPS (mais avec des cartes Michelin) et bien-sûr sans clim. C’est un mélange de nostalgie joyeuse et douce-amère qui fait remonter à la surface les souvenirs d’une époque. Un road trip dans l’histoire des Maghrébins de France. Ayant connu elle-même la route du bled lors des vacances au pays de ses parents, Halima Elkhatabi a choisi de faire raconter cette histoire par plusieurs voix. Drôles, lucides et contradictoires, mais toujours émouvantes, les paroles des unes et des autres tissent un récit méconnu et picaresque, partagé par des millions de Français d'origine maghrébine. Enregistrements : novembre-décembre 18 - Réalisation & mix : Arnaud Forest - Assistante recherche : Safia Elkhatabi - Illustrations : Rachid Sguini - Entretiens & montage : Halima Elkhatabi

Join 5x15 on a mind-altering adventure with the pioneering, genre-busting writer Michael Pollan in conversation with John Crace. Delving into states of consciousness, looking at the latest brain science and visiting the thriving underground community of psychedelic therapists, we’ll immerse ourselves in what is a major new field of therapeutic research. In his thrilling chronicle How to Change Your Mind, we meet the scientists, professionals, seekers and patients exploring the effects of LSD on the mind, creativity and personal experience and discover what the new science of psychedelics teaches us about consciousness, dying, addiction, depression, and transcendence. A profound shift in the public discussion around psychedelics and their positive, therapeutic affects is taking place across the US and UK. It has always been clear that psychedelics offer a paradigm shifting tool, and now with increased funding, psychedelic research is becoming mainstream. It is set to have a major impact on science and psychiatry, mental health, neuroscience and social science. Michael is in conversation with leading Guardian journalist John Crace. “a mind-altering book… full of transformations” Evening Standard “… deeply absorbing, wise and beautifully written” Literary Review More about Michael Pollan: For 25 years Michael has been writing pioneering books about how we live today.
