We're offering special thank you gifts directly from her record label to KBOO members during this special.
Hope you got your tickets to her gig here in Portland on Friday April 18th cuz it is sold out!
Pledge Drive Special -- on Tues April 1 (April Fools Day), tune in to enjoy a live performance with local musical talent Sneakin' Out. If you haven't yet heard these three guys play live, you will want to listen to this show! Be ready for some fool-hardy fun and a few very creative covers, along with their original creations. This group has some serious talent and you will see/hear more of them in the near future!
If you've read the recent edition of Just Out, you already know about The Cliks. If you haven't yet heard about this Rock-n-Roll group, get ready to be impressed! Fronted by trans-man Lucas Silveira (lead vocals/guitar), with Morgan Doctor (Drums), Nina Martinez (Guitar) and Jen Benton (Bass). Their myspace page offers loads of details.

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.....
Tonight's Out Loud show features two annoucements and two interviews.
First we hear from Soul, who interviews Keri, a volunteer with Brother to Brother and Basic Rights Oregon. They wrap up African American History Month and Keri shares his experiences as an African American transman in Portland.
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.
