For the rest of the show, we talk with organizers from the LGBTQ Meaningful Care Conference, happening in Portland on Friday April 11, 2008. This conference is happening as part of the National LGBT Health Awareness Week happening April 6 to 12.
At the beginning of the original show that aired 2/19/08 included a 10 minute news story of Lawrence King, shot and killed inside of his middle school on 2/12/08. I edited out that news story and that audio is seperate from this segment.
This news segment, initially aired Feb 19, 2008, highlights the killing of Lawrence King, the 15-year-old 8th-grader who was killed inside of his middle school because he was gay and gender non-conforming.
I usually don't think of blogs as news sources, but this one lists not only facts but raises serious questions.
Tonight's Out Loud show features two annoucements and two interviews.
First we hear from Soul, who interviews Keri, a volunteer with Brother to Brother and Basic Rights Oregon. They wrap up African American History Month and Keri shares his experiences as an African American transman in Portland.
This interview is heavily edited due to FCC indecency rules. You'll hear an array of sounds instead of the speakers' true words. You'll have to see the show to hear the real deal. I'll upload an unedited version of this interview in the near future.....
