Transgender Awareness Month and Day of Remembrance

program date: 
Tue, 11/17/2009

Every year dozens of individuals are brutally murdered because they are transgender or simply perceived as gender variant. Rather than decreasing, the number of these deaths has increased in the last few years, possibly as a backlash against gay-marriage legislation.  In order to memorialize those who have died for their gender presentations, activists founded the Transgender Day of Remembrance on November 20th.  This year, Oregon Governor Kulongoski proclaimed the day a statewide day of remembrance; and the entire month of November has been dedicated to transgender awareness.

In this episode of Gender Blender, co-hosts Jacob Anderson-Minshall and Laura Calvo spoke to the organizers of some of those events including:  Allison Cleveland, Executive Director of Eugene’s Gender Center and a key player in eliciting the governor’s proclamation; Natalia from Portland State University’s Queer Resource Center, which is sponsoring the local Transgender Day of Remembrance events, including a concert by trans musicians Katastrophe and Athens Boys Choir (aka Katz); and queer performer Peterson Toscano who will be presenting his one-man play, “Transfigurations—Transgressing Gender in the Bible,” Thursday, November 19th at the Epworth United Methodist Church, 1333 SE 28th Street in Portland.

Rocked Saul Williams and Afro Punk to prime you for the Sunday show (November 15, Aladdin Theater). Be there or just be bent...

Lots of new music...Earl Greyhound (opening for Saul), Tv on the Radio (not even here but still in effect), some Jack Davey and her band J*Davey (not Afro Punk but still rockers). We even had some Saul Williams to set the airwaves afire.

What is Afro Punk...well, it's full of the fury and political fervor your expect from punk...just with a Black sensibility and swagga....you do know what swagger/ swagga is don't you.? Best act like you do.

Taking a cue from the show that precedes mine, I brought in an old mixtape to play on my show this morning.

Titled "Live Studio Audience", the tape consists of various songs culled from audience recordings I made of various concerts I attended in the mid-90's when I was living in upstate New York.

For me it was an audio travelogue of sorts....lots of road trips to cool cities that I was visiting for the first time...Providence, Boston, Ottawa, Ithaca, Montreal.....for YOU I hope it was entertaining in some way, at least to hear what was going on musically in 1994-1995.

Thanks as always for staying up with me!
