Interview with author Chris Delyani and new book You Are Here

Interview with Chris Delyani and his new book You Are Here.

"All Peter Bankston ever wanted to do was paint.

An aspiring painter, Peter scratches out a pauper's living in San Francisco, wanting nothing more than to be left alone. Instead, he finds himself getting involved with not one but two very different men.

Like Peter, getting involved with another man is the last thing on Nick Katsaris's mind. Smart, handsome, and good-humored, Nick's done more than just survive-he's positively thriving in San Francisco. But when he meets Peter, what begins as fun and games quickly turns into a game he can't control."

The name Athens Boys Choir can be a bit deceiving but you can’t blame a Jewish Transsexual man living in the Deep South for having a sense of humor about the whole ordeal. So Katz, the Choir’s now solo member, travels the country speaking “the good word” throwing down hard hitting spokenword that deals with issues of Gender, Politics, Love, Sex, and everything in-between including but not limited to spooning. Katz’s spokenword is raw, unapologetic, witty, and soulful.

This interview highlights Katz's thoughts on gender, youth, performing, making a difference, and of course, the whole gay thing. You'll also 3 different pieces of his.....

The local production of The Vagina Monologues is happening at Clark College in Vancouver on Friday March 7th and Saturday March 8th. This event is a benefit for the Clark County YWCA.

This interview is heavily edited due to FCC indecency rules. You'll hear an array of sounds instead of the speakers' true words. You'll have to see the show to hear the real deal. I'll upload an unedited version of this interview in the near future.....

Now, about this indencency thing - the FCC doesn't really care about your opinions regarding what you consider indencent or obscene. Even though we're talking about the Public Airways. This organization will give you some input on what's happening within the FCC.

At the beginning of the original show that aired 2/19/08 included a 10 minute news story of Lawrence King, shot and killed inside of his middle school on 2/12/08. I edited out that news story and that audio is seperate from this segment.

For the bulk of this show, aired Feb 19, 2008, we heard from a couple of lesbian musicians.  We hear Ashleigh Flynn's song with Sneakin' Out titled 'Rocky Top'. We also hear an interview with Myshkin and hear her song: Gypsytown.  A quick sample of Toshi Reagon rounds out the show.

We also announced that the Rose City Softball Association is recruiting new members. Get all the details at their website.

This news segment, initially aired Feb 19, 2008, highlights the killing of Lawrence King, the 15-year-old 8th-grader who was killed inside of his middle school because he was gay and gender non-conforming.

I usually don't think of blogs as news sources, but this one lists not only facts but raises serious questions.

Here are other sites for more information: Myspace site. Remembrance site.

For allies, adults and school staff to get involved in making schools safe for all students to learn and for all teachers to teach, there are a few resources:  The Oregon Safe Schools Coalition, the Washington Safe Schools Coalition, the Gay Lesbian Straight Educators Network, and I love the ACLU. This is their LGBTQ  site.
