Katz’s spokenword is raw, unapologetic, witty, and soulful.

This interview highlights Katz's thoughts on gender, youth, performing, making a difference, and of course, the whole gay thing. You'll also 3 different pieces of his.....

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.....

Now, about this indencency thing - the FCC doesn't really care about your opinions regarding what you consider indencent or obscene. Even though we're talking about the Public Airways. This organization will give you some input on what's happening within the FCC.

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.

Here are other sites for more information: Myspace site. Remembrance site.

For allies, adults and school staff to get involved in making schools safe for all students to learn and for all teachers to teach, there are a few resources:  The Oregon Safe Schools Coalition, the Washington Safe Schools Coalition, the Gay Lesbian Straight Educators Network, and I love the ACLU. This is their LGBTQ  site.
