Interview with Country music star Chely Wright, who just came out as lesbian

 

In 1999 Chely Wright's dreams came true.  She became a country music star with her hit, “Single White Female,” and topped other charts—People’s 50 Most Beautiful People list, FHMs’ Sexiest Women in Music—and she was collaborating, on stage and off, with some of the country’s most eligible bachelors. She performed around the globe, entertained the military troops, gained awards and mainstream success and maintained her belief in God, family and apple pie.

Dirty Queer MC guest on Out Loud

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.
