      Breaking Protocol With Diplomats Bob Satawake and James "Wally" Brewster

      Bob Satawake, Author, Breaking Protocol: Forging a Path Beyond Diplomacy; Senior Advisor to the Ambassador, U.S. Embassy Santo Domingo; Twitter @bsatawakeJames "Wally" Brewster, Former U.S. Ambassador to the Dominican Republic; CEO, Insignias Global; Twitter @wallybrewsterMichelle Meow, Producer and Host, "The Michelle Meow Show" (online and KBCW/KPIX TV)—Co-HostJohn Zipperer, Host, Week to Week Political Roundtable; Vice President of Editorial & Media, The Commonwealth Club—Co-Host In 2013, Bob Satawake accompanied his husband, Ambassador James "Wally" Brewster, to the Dominican Republic for what would be a historic and controversial tour of duty representing the United States in the island nation. As the first gay diplomatic spouse in the Western Hemisphere, Satawake received little if any guidance from the U.S. State Department on navigating his new role. As a result, he had little choice but to break the sometimes rigid protocols of diplomatic life. Come hear Satawake and Brewster talk about their experience making a new path as openly gay diplomats in a conservative and religious country, overcoming obstacles with kindness and sensitivity.
