Tonight on Inquiry we talk with musician, former guitarist for the Slits, visual artist and filmmaker VIV ALBERTINE. Her wonderful and refreshingly honest new autobiography is titled CLOTHES CLOTHES CLOTHES MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC BOYS BOYS BOYS. Tune in tonight for part one of our conversation.  Viv talks about her “Ping Pong Affair” with Mick Jones of the Clash, her first band “Flowers of Romance”, and the Slits first record “Cut”. Viv’s latest record is called “The Vermillion Border.” Part 1 airs this week, Part 2 airs next week.

Tonight on Inquiry, we talk with ROBERT BEACHY, associate professor of history at the Underwood International College of Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea. His new book is titled GAY BERLIN: BIRTHPLACE OF A MODERN IDENTITY. It is Beachy’s central argument that our modern understanding of homosexuality and gay culture started in the 19th Century city of Berlin. This is a fascinating history complicated by the extreme politics of Germany in the first decades of the 20th Century. Tune in and learn about the very first gay rights organization and how the Nazis eventually ended decades of progress in sexual rights.
