The outLoud Radio Project gives voice to youth who are otherwise silenced because of who they love or their gender they claim. It's young people of diverse genders and sexualities using the media to explore the issues that affect their lives. It's getting the word out, because understanding is essential. It's young people taking control of how their lives are represented.
