The mission of Outright Radio
is to help eliminate homophobia based on ignorance and invisibility by featuring true-life stories of out lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual role models sharing our stories and struggles in top-quality national radio specials.
Our program focuses on the unique experiences of everyday people in a series of hour-long, skillfully-edited, theme-based radio storybooks. It is a tapestry of music, narration, and interviews. Outright Radio is gay life in the first person.
We feature stories from the broad spectrum of LGBT culture. From queer youth, elders, and transexual's stories, to segments about a lesbian surfer, a gay trucker, gay and lesbian Native Americans, homeless youth, and gay marriage, Outright Radio
offers compelling radio accessible to all audiences.
*Our shows are available for broadcast on any non-PRI public radio station after October 1 of each year.
