Growin’ Up, Comin’ Out, Speakin’ Proud
Making Contact (National Radio Project)
Every year across the country and around the world –– lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer people and those who support them gather to march, protest and celebrate. Over the past two decades, there have been profound transformations of human and civil rights for queer people in this country. Still, LGBTQ perspectives are largely absent from public discourse – especially the views of young queer people. On this edition, we hear from queer youth who are making radio to share their stories, perspectives and create social change.
