Laughter is good for the soul, and tonight, we invite three very funny ladies to join us.

Dana Goldberg is a nationally known lesbian comedian who is in town this weekend for a show. Dana and two local comedians, Belinda Carroll and Whitney Streed, will be our guests, with humor as our focus.

This is Dana's very first time in Portland! Raised by a wild pack of Jews, otherwise known as her mother and siblings, Dana Goldberg is a force of nature on stage. Recently starring in her comedy special "One Night Stand Up; Episode 4" on the LOGO Network, Dana is taking the national scene by storm. CURVE Magazine raves, “She’s smart, cute, and seriously funny.” and voted her one of the top 5 lesbian comedians in 2008. Girl4Girl in Seattle calls Dana our “triple threat.”

Belinda Carroll and Whitney Streed both host comedy events in town, among other things. You might also recognize Belinda and Whitney because they've been on the radio show before, and they crack funny jokes. All three of these funny people will be on stage this Sat, Jan 22 @ 9pm @ the Hawthorne Theater.

Music breaks:

Ferron's "In the Meantime" started the show. Billy Bragg's "Sexuality" and Betty's "Kiss My Sticky" aired during the show. Ferron's "Misty Mountain" aired at the end of the hour. Ferron is playing two shows in town in March!

Tue, 11/16/2010

Tonight's show focuses on the Transgender Week of Empowerment.

" I want all this because sex is good, because stereotypes deserve to be unmade, because connection dispels marginalization, because pleasure breeds happiness breeds joy. And who the hell wants to argue against joy in the face of an unjust world anyway? " and "It is not only in our personal relationships that we discover the emotional truths of oppression --truths that we never learn in books. It is in our personal relationships that we become motivated... So we become motivated to do many things for our lovers, to save them time, to bring them closer to us, to liberate them."

-     Diana Courvant Graham  from "Confluence and Sex"

Sasha and Dan open the show with Smitty Buckler, who is the Trans Resource Coordinator at the Queer Resource Center at Portland State.  Smitty discusses the pervasive and brutal violence directed toward Trans folk and the events surrounding Transgender Week of Empowerment.

Later, we play some audio from an interview with Tobi Hill-Meyer, who will be speaking and showing ze's film at the Candle Light Vigil that will take place on November 20th, the Transgender Day of Remembrance.  Tobi has been speaking publicly for eight years and is a film-maker, blogger, ziner and all around activist.

Dan and I rap up the program with some groundbreaking stories about openly Trans individuals breaking new ground.  We'll discuss the election of Victoria Kolakowski as the first federal openly Transgender judge to be elected, as well as Mye Allums, a basketball player, who became the first openly Transgender athlete in Division I athletics in the NCAA this week.

Out Loud Radio Special FUNd-raiser

Tue, 10/05/2010

For the love of community radio, Christine Havrilla and Jacob $hue return to our studios to play more live music. This duo rocked our studios a couple of weeks ago, and tonight they'll have the mics for most of the show!
Christine & Jacob start off the show with Blinders from Christine's CD "Velocity".

Sasha interviews Violet from the Trans Women's Heart Circle, and they talk about Violet's work in our community.
Next we hear Christine Havrilla and Jacob Shue play Everyday. Then they encourage everyone to sing along to Take Another Look. Both songs are from the "In My Chair" CD.

In a moment of seriousness, Carla shares the names, ages and some other details about the recent suicides that have happened in the past 30 days in our country. The level of anti-gay-hate is rising and it's costing us the LIVES of our next generation.

Raymond Chase was a sophomore at Johnson and Wales University in Rhode Island when he took his own life.  The case that has been getting the most attention is about Tyler Clementi, a freshman at Rutgers who jumped off the George Washington bridge to his death after his roommate allegedly streamed images of him having sex with another man. Seth Walsh was a 13-year-old middle school student from California who hung himself after having been tormented by classmates who perceived him to be gay. Asher Brown was a 13-year-old from Texas who shot himself after his parents say he was bullied for his small size, religion and because they thought he was gay. Billy Lucas was a 15-year-old from Indiana who hung himself. Justin Aaberg was 15-year-old from Minnesota who killed himself after being bullied for being gay and breaking up with his boyfriend.

The Trevor Project is an organization to prevent youth suicides. Their hotline: 1-866-4-U-TREVOR

Queer youth organizers are planning a national day of action: Spirit Day This is happening on October 20th, 2010. Please wear purple in honor of the 6 gay youth who committed suicide in recent weeks/months due to homophobic abuse.

Personally, I'm asking you to reach out to youth in your life, especially youth who are 'different'. One voice can make a difference.

We end the show with a song from Christine Havrilla and Jacob Shue. Fresh Sanity wraps up tonight's special FUNd-raiser!

Thank you for your $upport. And thank you for listening. Until next time, stay proud and live out loud!
