The following is scheduled:
Opening, general discussion
Queer Voices, a weekly radio program on Pacifica radio's Houston affiliate KPFT, is dedicated to broadcasting news, concerns, and events as related to Houston's Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered (GLBT) community. The goal of Queer Voices is to provide up to date information on the community's concerns that is currently not available from other local media outlets. The show is heard on Pacifica's KPFT 90.1 FM in Houston, Texas on Mondays, 8 to 9 pm, Central Time.
Queer voices is always looking for volunteers to help put out a great show. For out community! No prior radio experience is required, just a desire to positively impact the GLBT community, and the avility to be at KPFT's studio on Mondays from 8:30 pm to 11 pm. For more information please contact Us.
Every year on National Coming Out Day, we celebrate coming out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) or as an ally. On Oct. 11, 2014, we will mark the 26th anniversary of National Coming Out Day.
26 years ago, on the anniversary of the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, we first observed National Coming Out Day as a reminder that one of our most basic tools is the power of coming out. One out of every two Americans has someone close to them who is gay or lesbian. For transgender people, that number is only one in 10.
Coming out STILL MATTERS. When people know someone who is LGBTQ, they are far more likely to support equality under the law. Beyond that, our stories can be powerful to each other.
Every person who speaks up changes more hearts and minds, and creates new advocates for equality.more
If you would like to share your coming out stories with QueerVoices, we plan to do a feature on Monday, October 13,
Send a mp3 file to info@QueerVoices.org and we will review and play parts and some of the submissions.
