Host Marliese Franklin speaks with Italian filmmakers Gustav Hofer and Luca Ragazzi about their film Suddenly, Last Winter, which is part of QDoc: The Portland Queer Documentary Film Festival. This Italian film follows a couple filmmakers Gustav Hofer and Luca Ragazzi) as the Italian government debates domestic partnership legislation. Through interviews with people on the street, ranging from devout Catholics to a band of fascists, the pair paints a complex picture of how Italians view the concept of family, and how powerful a role the church plays in that country's politics.

The National Day of Silence was Friday April 25th. This is the largest student-led day of action in the country. Many schools in the Portland metro area, as well as nationally, participated in this event. This year's event was held in honor of Lawrence King, a 15 year old killed in school by a classmate because he was gay and non-gender conforming.
Did you participate in the Day of Silence at your school? Would you like to tell your story on the radio?
For our next Out Loud show, I'd like to invite Day of Silence participants to call into the radio show to tell their story to our listeners - live!
