For Prisoner Justice Day, August 10th, 2010, Earful of Queer, Our local queer radio program on CFRU 93.3fM interviewed Jason Lydon, of http://www.blackandpink.org. The interview talks about queer and trans folk in prison and the support work we, as queers on the outside, need to be doing to support our community on the inside. Check out this synopsis and check out the interview linked above and below.

Today we are speaking with Jason Lydon, who writes and maintains the website http://www.blackandpink.org. Black and Pink focuses on prioviding support to Queer and Trans prisoners in the United States, as well as, maintaining a monthly newsletter, a blog and an online store, http://www.blackandpinkart.org, which sells Queer and Trans prisoners artwork to folks on the outside. We will be speaking with Jason on the eve of Prisoner Justice Day about what Black and Pink does to support Queer and Trans prisoners, issues they face inside the prison walls and what queer resistance to the Prison Industrial Complex looks like today and in the future.
