KPFA Evening News spoke to Kate Raphael, Harvey Milk Club member, and host of KPFA’s Women’s Magazine, whom former Grand Marshal Joey Cain nominated to serve as a Pride Grand Marshall in 2004, after she had been arrested protesting the apartheid wall in Palestine and then traveled to Iraq. Kate was elected, much to her surprise, after returning to Palestine, but decided her first obligation at that time was to stay there, as a "Grand Marshal in Absentia" during the parade. She said she will, however, attend the Milk Club's open forum, "Bradley Manning: Grand Martial, Not Court Martial," at 7 pm Tuesday evening, 05.14.2013, at the LGBT Center, 1800 Market Street, in San Francisco.
