Meeting Troy Jackson for this week’s taping was great.  

We laughed, shared stories, and took a short walk.

Community is a big theme in Jackson’s work, this song, The Batty Boys Revenge, in particular.  

See my review of Jackson’s EP CD of Troy and my interview with him. 

The Batty Boys Revenge is a call to action, a song of strength, the taking back of an homophobic term, fists of poetry in notes, and standing for something. 

With  the recent brutal murder of gay man Daniel Zamudio, 24, in Chile, and the violent comments of hompbobic Baptist Pastor Sean Harris this week, The Batty Boys Revenge is needed greatly!
