We'll be listening to the syndicated program Making Contact. Today's program is on intersex issues, both medical and personal, and gender identity concerns.

We'll hear a poetry clip from Candy Royalle, Australian queer poet and artist who died earlier this year. You can read a fuller bio here, at her site

Next, we'll hear a song performed by the Portland Lesbian Choir. The choir performs at The Grotto this Thursday, a performance that has some Catholics uneasy. We hope you'll travel out to The Grotto and hear these wonderful singers in person. Choir director Mary McCarty will be on hand to talk with us.

We'll listen to "Santa Bear" by Fake Zappa, aka local artist Jason T. Ingram. Jason has sat in with us on Preference in the past, to talk about his experience in conversion therapy in the South, some years ago, and his recovery from the trauma it caused him.

De l'Amour, a new track performed by dozens of French artists, has just been released. The haunting and beautiful melody translates into English as ‘Of Love’ and tells the story of gay refugee Azamat; who was the first refugee the charity helped escape persecution in his home country. All proceeds from its sales will go to French charity Urgence Homophobie (Emergency Homophobia).

Finally, we'll listen to This Way Out, a syndicated program covering national and international LGBTQ issues. 



Intro music on today's show is 'Spacer,' by Sheila & B Devotion.
