Out Loud is retiring - but Queer programming continues on KBOO
KBOO is proud of our long-time support of programming serving and featuring the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning communities. A handful of LGBTQ focused shows have aired over the years, including Queer Queer World, Gender Blender, The Other Team and most recently Out Loud, which began airing in April 2002.
Out Loud was created by a collective of volunteers and has been created by many volunteers over the 13 years it has been on KBOO. Out Loud is retiring in June, and while we prepare to say good bye to Out Loud, we welcome the opportunity for new programs to continue airing in Out Loud's time slot, which is every Tuesday from 6pm - 7 pm, after KBOO's evening news and before Hard Knock Radio.
KBOO welcomes new show proposals serving and focusing on the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning communities. Individuals (or small groups of people) are encouraged to submit a proposal for a new queer/LGBTQ program by June 9th. The Program Proposal form can be found on the KBOO website at: http://kboo.fm/volunteer/program-app
To meet KBOO's mission and strategic plan, people from under-represented groups are encouraged to submit proposals. Program proposals need to fit the current format of the News and Public Affairs time frame (ie. not a music show).
The new program proposals will be considered by the Programming Committee on June 9th, 2015. Out Loud's last show will also be June 9th, and pilots of new shows will air during June, with the final decision on the new schedule of shows to be made by Program staff in July.
Thanks to everyone who has supported queer programming on KBOO through the years - and we look forward to new and exciting developments in this area in the months and years to come. Stay tuned!
Out Loud is KBOO's queer culture radio show, celebrating & serving the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning & allied communities.

What some have said about Joshua Klipp:

Recently voted 'Best place to relive your most graphic sexual encounters in front of a live audience' by Willamette Week, tune in to find out about Dirty Queer. You'll hear from Sossity Chiricuzio, MC of Dirty Queer, the monthly open mic event for queer erotica, which is also a benefit for In Other Words.
Dirty Queer happens the second Friday of every month at In Other Words (8 NE Killingsworth).
Tonight's Out Loud will be the PG-13 version of Dirty Queer, thanks to your federal government's guidelines around indencency. That would be the FCC who makes the rules around what words we can say on the radio. Tonight's radio show has been edited to play by the FCC rules. The true Dirty Queer is NOT PG-13. I like to think of it as XX rated, for the female chromosomes.
Thanks to KBOO volunteer Jacob Anderson-Minshall for this interview.
To continue the theme of performing open-mic style, you'll also hear Ani DiFranco reading "Detroit Annie, hitchiking" by Judy Grahn.
Carla, host, and Jacob Anderson-Minshall, host of QLiterati!, talk about the new monthly event, that takes place every 2nd Wednesday at the Q Center.

This event happens tomorrow night, Wednesday, July 9th, from 7 to 9 at the Q Cente for readings, an open mic, Q&As, treats and door prizes!
QLiterati! is hosted by Diane and Jacob Anderson-Minshall. Diane is Executive Editor at Curve, the nation's largest lesbian magazine, and Jacob writes the nationally syndicated column, TransNation.
QLiterati! is dedicated to promoting established local LGBTQ authors; while also attracting the occasional literary superstar and highlighting emerging writers during the open mic.
Last month's premier event attracted an engaged crowd who enjoyed free snacks and non-alcoholic drinks, fabulous door prizes and cookies awarded to audience members who posed ask questions to the authors. Even requests for an open mic participant to share his culinary secrets were granted cookie privileges. All this and more for the reasonable price of FREE--although donations are welcome.
