    It's Time For Our July Break

    We work really hard to bring you 3 episodes a week. But we’ll admit: sometimes it's good to take a break from the news.

    We won't be making new episodes during the month of July. We’re using this time to reset, rest, do some team bonding, and brainstorm what we want to make for you in the coming year. We will resume our regular schedule starting on Friday, August 2.

    You can still reach us on Twitter at @thebaykqed or via e-mail [email protected]. We always love hearing from you.

    A Conversation With Banko Brown’s Chosen Family

    On April 27, 2023, an armed security guard shot and killed a Black trans man named Banko Brown outside of a San Francisco Walgreens.

    Brown’s killing sparked outrage. But San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins decided not to charge the security guard who shot him, saying that he acted in self-defense. And just last Friday, Attorney General Rob Bonta’s office announced that it supported that decision

    This announcement has crushed Banko Brown’s loved ones, including those who say that his killing was an example of the conditions that unhoused transgender people face in San Francisco.

    KQED reporter Joe Fitzgerald Rodriguez sits down with Brown’s chosen family, to discuss life as a homeless queer person in San Francisco, and Banko’s life before his death.

    This episode originally aired on Sept. 6, 2023.
