Stacey Katz, pedophile

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.


I'm getting a boy magnet!

Where do I begin...snicker :-)

I'm getting a Motor scooter!!

There are lots of boys around my house, I hope it gets their attention :-)

September is a good month to travel to London, with the warning that the museums will be filled with school groups. Warning? Sounds more like an invitation to me :-)

Anyway, back to the BM, I was in the BM (British Museum silly) walking through the Egyptian collection. I was in awe of what was there, the carvings, statues, artifacts and mummies. I was also interested in the school kids. You can tell they are there with school because of their uniforms, sometimes a a blazer and pants, or juts a sweater and a tie. and with the younger kids, no tie.

I was walking through the collection and a boy of about 7 or 8 asks if I was going to take their picture, not that I would mind, but London is very paranoid, taking pictures of kids is not really a good idea. I asked why. I was told by the cute blonde in the group that an American and another gentleman had already took their picture. I politely smiled and said I wouldn't be taking their picture. BUT, I did give them all, there were 4 of them, a Canada flag pin. There were smiles all around. Again I was asked if i could please take their picture now, this time I couldn't refuse. The mom that was with them supervising their work at the museum seemed to enjoy what was going on and even encouraged them by reminding them to say "Thank You" and by allowing them to get their picture taken.

4 wonderfully cute British school boys all smiling and showing of their new pins.

Who could ask for anything more.

Additional Quotes


I'm PopaBear, a name i was given by my young friends on IRC. They told me i was what they wanted from a dad or Popa, and i was always availible for a chat or a hug.

And here's what another infamous convicted boylover, Camper, had to say about Popabear. High praise, indeed:

PopaBear is on the front lines, guys, while we hang back here trying to get our heads on straight. I am very proud of him for the job he is doing - he is a fine example of an internet BOYLOVER - the kind that casts doubt into peoples minds about the media-popularized INTERNET PEDOPHILE.

PopaBear talks to a lot of kids - and I know he often talks to their parents too. He is civilized, polite and loving and honest. He tells people up-front that he is a man who is attracted to boys.

You, David, are not the first person to have had an experience like this - PopaBear has told me of others. He has helped out adult/kids before, and no doubt will again.

Not only of IRC fame, PopaBear was also insturmental in the creation of The Montreal Ganymede Collective.

And to me, personally, he has meant a great deal. I met him about a year before I was jailed for loving boys, and he was a great companion to me before that experience, during, and after.

In my not so humble opinion, PopaBear is a great boylover.

'Popabear,' a computer technician at a Montreal CEGEP and lifelong pedophile, agrees. A founding member of the Ganymede Collective, he is unequivocal that he couldn't live his lifestyle anywhere else in North America, particularly since he has a prior record of abuse against a boy in the early 1990s. 'Because of attitudes in Montreal and Quebec, there was a level of comfort for us to make some public announcements,' he says. 'I'm not saying we had billboards up or anything, but I don't think people in Toronto would do that...'

Popabear suggests Ganymede was only a club for pedophiles to talk about computers, though there is evidence members tried to cover up the sexual exploits of a fellow member.
