In exchange for quarters in her pantry, he served as companion, driver, confidant and occasional medic for the flamboyant and worldly septuagenarian. His account of those times pulls the reader through religious, cultural and historical tales laced with intrigue, felony and mystery." See you on the radio Tuesday, 6 pm, dear listeners!

Celebrating what sets us apart

program: 
Out Loud
program date: 
Tue, 01/12/2010

It's time to celebrate what sets us apart! The queer community is judged and treated differently for our private lives. Tonight we embrace and celebrate local queer sex-positivity on Out Loud.

Krissy Fiction, from the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence joins us to talk about BOINK! a porn benefit for the Sisters' Grant Fund and Cascade AIDS Project. Boink is happening Sat, January 23rd Invasion Nightclub.

The event was born when a donor gave Cascade AIDS Project 800 porn DVDs and tapes.  CAP contacted the Portland Sisters and suggested a partnership to have the Sisters hold a porn-themed event as a fundraiser for both organizations.  BOINK! came into existence as a sexy, naughty, and most of all, FUN way to raise some money!

All proceeds from the raffle and sales will go directly to the Sisters Grant Fund and to CAP. So all monies raised will be going directly back to the Portland community.

Between interviews, Billy Brag's song 'Sexuality' celebrates what sets us apart - sex!

Darklady also joins Out Loud this evening to discuss her work, her parties, and more!

We also celebrate Dirty Queer's 3rd Birthday, which happened Fri Jan 8. We'll hear from Sossity, MC for and creative force behind DQ, as well as dirty queers (from the audience) on what they like best about this monthly event!

As always, we'll share a variety of community announcements and event listings.  If you have something to share with our community, let me know: outloudradio@gmail.com
