Queer news & culture radiozine for greater Portland.
On Out Loud this week, we'll be chatting with Ross Eliot. He's the author of 'Babette:The Many Lives, Two Deaths and Double Kidnapping of Dr. Ellsworth.'

"This book is the story of Ross Eliot's early years in Portland, Oregon when he stumbled upon an unusual living arrangement with an eccentric history professor. In exchange for quarters in her pantry, he served as companion, driver, confidant and occasional medic for the flamboyant and worldly septuagenarian. His account of those times pulls the reader through religious, cultural and historical tales laced with intrigue, felony and mystery." See you on the radio Tuesday, 6 pm, dear listeners!

We'll also be talking tomorrow with Kiera Hansen of Cascade AIDS Project about the Peer Education Program at Chat PDX. CHATpdx's Peer Educator program provides skills, resources and training for young people taking action to end HIV/AIDS.

Peer Educators meet weekly to talk about topics like: Healthier Relationships, Gender, Sexual Orientation, Working in solidarity with marginalized communities, STIs, Safer Sex, and HIV/AIDS.
It's a 20-week program to become a Peer Educator; the next orientation is Jan 24th. We'll also have a couple of current Peer Educators with us! We'll see you on the radio....
