OutCasting is seeking LGBTQ youth and straight allies who want to join the show. If you're LGBTQ and closeted, that's OK, too.
OutCasting, public radio's groundbreaking LGBTQ youth program, is produced by MFPG — MEDIA FOR THE PUBLIC GOOD, INC., a national nonprofit public media production organization with a local public radio heritage: for many years, it owned and operated a public radio station just north of New York City — WDFH FM 90.3 Westchester Public Radio. As MFPG, we can now focus more intently on production of programming while reaching a vastly larger audience than was possible running a single local public radio station.
Our mission: Giving a national voice to LGBTQ youth, training a new generation of media activists, and contributing to our national discussion of LGBTQ issues.
LISTEN — You can hear OutCasting here on MFPG.org and via iTunes. And hear the show on public radio: OutCasting is distributed nationally on the Pacifica Radio Network and can be heard on public radio stations around the country.
SUPPORT — We need your support to produce this program. Please make your tax-deductible gift now!
And if you're a possible major individual donor or a foundation or a business that wants to support the LGBTQ community through OutCasting, please see our special message for you.
NEW BOARD MEMBERS — We are in the looking for highly qualified people to join MFPG's Board of Directors. Qualified applicants should have previous non-profit board experience and a strong and supportive interest in LGBTQ issues. Please contact us if you're interested in applying.
OUTCASTING YOUTH PARTICIPANTS — We're always looking for new youth participants for OutCasting — LGBTQ youth (closeted or out) and straight allies of high school or college age. You must be able to attend weekly production sessions, which are generally held in the afterschool or evening hours. Our home studio is in Westchester County, just north of New York City. We also operate OutCasting bureaus in New York City, in collaboration with the Hetrick-Martin Institute, and at Michigan State University in East Lansing.
