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.

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.
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.
The show starts with a brief update on Domestic Partnerships becoming legal in Oregon. Soul talks with Multnomah County Commissioner Jeff Cogan about the first day of DP registrations, as well as a short overview of how far short this is from true equality.
For the rest of the show, we talk with organizers from the LGBTQ Meaningful Care Conference, happening in Portland on Friday April 11, 2008. This conference is happening as part of the National LGBT Health Awareness Week happening April 6 to 12.
Soul talks with Bonnie Tinker, ED of Love Makes A Family and Dr. Kimberly F. Balsam a Research Assistant Professor at the School of Social Work at the University of Washington about a published article (Adult Romantic Relationships as Contexts of Human Development: A Multi method Comparison of Same-Sex Couples with Opposite-Sex Dating, Engaged, and Married Dyads) in the January issue of Developmental Psychology, a publication produced by the American Psychological Association.
Thanks to Phoenix and Trudy (a Eugene couple) and Yolanda (from Salem) we learn more about how the delay of domestic partnerships impacts live outside the Portland GLBT community.
As always, Out Loud is here to help you get the word out about Portland LGBTQ news and events. Be sure to email us directly before noon of each Tuesday. We’ll do our best to announce or feature your event on our show or this site.
