The new San Francisco Bay Times is ready for you! Our latest issue offers a Vulcan salute to StartOut Award recipients, including George Takei, who runs his Facebook page as deftly as he steered the USS Enterprise. Both StartOut and Out & Equal Workplace Advocates have important local events on the horizon that we recommend, particularly if you are an entrepreneur, small business supporter or are pursuing a career in tech. If you are single, don't miss Tom Moon's column. He offers good advice for those who feel they may not be ready, or secure enough, for a relationship. Be sure to read Ann Rostow's column also, as she'll bring you up to speed on LGBT news. Rafael Mandelman provides an honest and very personal look at the issue of homelessness in San Francisco. Dennis McMillan remembers his friend and popular SF drag performer Arturo Galster. We are also now mourning the loss of legendary comedienne Joan Rivers, who was one of Hollywood's most vocal supporters of LGBT equality and who officiated a couple of gay weddings just a few weeks ago. As for Robin Williams, there are countless stories about her support- both through her work and $ donations- for the LGBT community. It's a little known fact that Rivers and Barbra Streisand performed together in an off-Broadway play in 1959 ("Driftwood") with homoerotic overtones. When the never self-censored Rivers later was asked about Streisand, she replied: "Let me tell you, Barbra is a great kisser, but no tongue." http://issuu.com/sfbt/docs/san_francisco_bay_times_-_september
