Tonight's show features music from and biography of Joshua Klipp, an award winning musician who also happens to be a trans-man.

Dirty Queer MC guest on Out Loud

Mon, 07/28/2008

Recently voted 'Best place to relive your most graphic sexual encounters in front of a live audience' by Willamette Week, tune in to find out about Dirty Queer. You'll hear from Sossity Chiricuzio, MC of Dirty Queer, the monthly open mic event for queer erotica, which is also a benefit for In Other Words.

Dirty Queer happens the second Friday of every month at In Other Words (8 NE Killingsworth).

Tonight's Out Loud will be the PG-13 version of Dirty Queer, thanks to your federal government's guidelines around indencency. That would be the FCC who makes the rules around what words we can say on the radio. Tonight's radio show has been edited to play by the FCC rules. The true Dirty Queer is NOT PG-13. I like to think of it as XX rated, for the female chromosomes.

Thanks to KBOO volunteer Jacob Anderson-Minshall for this interview.

To continue the theme of performing open-mic style, you'll also hear Ani DiFranco reading "Detroit Annie, hitchiking" by Judy Grahn.
