Don’t Say Gay Gay Gay

Steve Rothaus

Recently Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis’s signed the “Parental Rights in Education” bill — some call it the “Don’t Say Gay” bill — some say this bill is just about keeping the topics of sex and gender away from young children, others see it just another attack on the LGBTQ+ community.  

Lying On The Beach’s Lois Whitman-Hess and Steve Greenberg explore this controversy with their special guest pioneering journalist Steve Rothaus.  Steve has covered LGBTQ+ issues at the Miami Herald for more than two decades. He’s been honored with a GLAAD Media Award for outstanding newspaper columnist and many other awards.   The National Lesbian Gay Journalists Association inducted him into its Hall of Fame in 2019, the year he retired from the Miami Herald. Since then, Steve has remained active as a freelance journalist for the Herald, South Florida Gay News and WLRN News.

David Chesky is an American pianist, composer, producer , arranger, and co-founder of the independent, audiophile label Chesky Records. He is also co-founder and CEO of HDtracks, an online music store that sells high-resolution digital music.

David Chesky has won Independent Music Awards and received Grammy Award nominations. He has written jazz tunes, orchestral and chamber music, opera, ballet, and a rap symphony.

We are talking to David today because he composed an opera for children that teaches about the absurdity of war and acceptance of cultural diversity while exposing them to classical music. It’s called “The Mice War.” David also turned the opera into an animated movie and a soon to be produced children’s book.

“The Mice War” is about industrious Blue Mice that live in the North and the passive Red Mice that live on an Island way in the south.

The Blue Mice need to make more money so they decide they need to have a war.

The reason for the war?

The Blue Mice eat blue cheese and the Red Mice eat yellow cheese.

What would happen if the Red Mice came and made the Blue Mice eat yellow Cheese?

Welcome David.

Lying on the Beach On Camera with Steve Greenberg and Lois Whitman-Hess

Dr. Bruce Yaffe wants to know why a certain medicine he is well acquainted with is not being used as a treatment for Covid-19. He has no real proof that it works for everyone, but the few very sick patients he prescribed it to got significantly better within 24 hours. They all are well today. Dr. Yaffe is not saying this is the cure all, but he does want the research labs to do deep investigation on the drug.

What is it? You will just have to listen to the podcast to find out.

Dr. Yaffe is board certified in both Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology. His practice has been a fixture for patients on the Upper East Side for more than two decades.
