|Stacey B. Katz AKA PopaBear is a convicted pedophile who was instrumental in the creation of the infamous Montreal Ganymede Collective. He is active on BoyChat and currently works as a computer technician at Dawson College in Quebec. He prides himself on being a 'father figure' to boys.|
Stacey B. Katz AKA PopaBear is a convicted sex offender and known member of BoyChat. He is also a founding member of the Montreal Ganymede Collective. An article/interview about him at http://philia.ws/ph/99/06d.htm indicates that he was convicted of child sexual abuse in or around 1992. Though he says that he participated in therapy, that was not enough for him, so he went looking for other pedophiles online. Since then, he has embraced the "BoyLove" community and become an active online and real-life participant in the pedophile movement. It is known that he traveled to Amsterdam in 2000 and while there, attended an International BoyLove Day rally. He has since organized several meetings in several countries, including Canada, the Netherlands and London, that consisted of sex offenders and pedophiles.
Katz fancies himself a "father figure" to boys, dispensing advice and hugs, online and off. He has a long history of interacting with underage boys on Internet Relay Chat, as well as other places, especially in areas where there are young gay teens.
Katz is a Canadian citizen, currently residing in Montreal, Quebec. He is a computer technician and has been working at Dawson College in Montreal since April, 1988. He has a degree in psychology from Concordia University and a DEC (Diplome d’Études Collegiales) from the New School of Dawson College. His hobby is photography and he displays his photographs on several websites.
His work with children's charities gives him the opportunity to be very active with children on a very regular basis. There is a video of his 45th birthday party, in which he is surrounded by children, and he can't keep his hands off them. Reading his quotes, it's easy to understand why that is disturbing.
