Castillo KBOO's Scott Pham takes a close look at the proposal with Jean Evans,
spokesman for Castillo

On Saturday June 7th, the Q Center in Portland hosted two events for queer youth. The Queer Core Youth Awards honored area youth with a ceremony and gifts. That evening was the annual Queer Youth Prom hosted by SMYRC.
Carla attended each event and talked with participants.
Interview with Jean-Pierre Dessou about poverty and homelessness in
Togo, West Africa, and an interview with Brian Lindstrom, documentary
film maker working on Alien Boy, a film telling the story of
Jim Chasse, focusing on his last day, when Portland police stomped him.
They believed he was a drug dealer when he was a person dealing with
schizophrenia who in his earlier life had been a musician of local
note. Interesting juxtaposition of the lack of social stigma of
poverty in Togo and the police beating of Jim instigated in large part
by his appearance. Togo knows community. Portland's police don't.
