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.
Even though the Beaches are closed,
Steve and Lois are still “Lying on the Beach,” but in our homes.

Sam Roberts is celebrating the 400th anniversary of New York City with a new book called “A History of New York in 27 Buildings.” Sam brings to light the brilliant architecture, remarkable history, and bright future of the greatest city in the world. Sam looks at Grand Central Terminal, Empire State Building, and St. Paul’s Chapel. Other structures in his book show how municipal politics aka corruption — impacted the rise of the department store, live theater and public housing. The book isn’t really about design, but how occupants have used these buildings over the years. And you’ll learn why a spice shop on Lexington Ave is so important to US Presidential history.

Sam Roberts Introduces You To A New York You Never Knew
We would need this entire podcast
to properly introduce our guest today on “Lying on the Beach.” For the last 40
years, Ray Elman, currently founding Editor in Chief of Inspicio, has been at
the forefront of both the editorial and art worlds. Podcast Co-hosts, Steve
Greenberg, a TV personality, and Lois Whitman-Hess, a PR counselor, interviewed
Ray, about the state of journalism and why it’s not getting the respect it so
To appreciate the comments Ray is going to make you have to appreciate the quality work he has done in his career. In 2015, Ray founded the Inspicioarts publication platform, which is sponsored by FIU | CARTA. Inspicio provides in-depth, high-quality insights into all arts disciplines with a focus on Miami and South Florida. The publication is famous for its video interviewing technique and for mixing famous authors with student writers.
Elman also co-founded Provincetown Arts magazine and Cincinnati Arts magazine. Ray was also a pioneer in the digital communication industry, first as the National Director of Creative Services at Coopers & Lybrand (now PricewaterhouseCoopers) and as the co-founder of Streamline Communications, which is now a public company called Bridgeline Digital. He was also a founder of Cambria Interactive at Cambria Consulting.
addition, Elman has sustained a successful life-time career as
a visual artist. Four of his large
scale mixed-media portraits (Pulitzer Prize recipients Stanley
Kunitz, Jhumpa Lahiri, Alan Dugan, & U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky) are
included in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian National Portrait
Gallery. His work is exhibited in museums, galleries and private collections
all over the world.
