OutCasting founder and executive producer Marc Sophos has won an AARP Purpose Prize Fellowship, a prestigious national honor for OutCasting!  More info coming soon.

OutCasting and OutCasting Overtime, public radio's groundbreaking LGBTQ youth programs, are 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, we owned and operated a public radio station just north of New York City — WDFH FM 90.3 Westchester Public Radio. 

MFPG produces OutCasting , a 29 minute program, and shorter OutCasting Overtime pieces.  We also produce OutCasting Extras, short online-only features.  Each comes out monthly.

 

MISSION — OutCasting helps create a more just world for LGBTQ people by contributing to our nation's discussion of LGBTQ issues from a unique youth perspective that enlightens general public radio audience that's open to learning about LGBTQ issues but may not know much about them. 

 LISTEN — You can hear OutCasting here on MFPG.orgOutCasting  |  OutCasting Overtime  |  OutCasting Extras — and via iTunes.  And hear the show on public radio:  OutCasting is distributed nationally on the Pacifica Radio Network and the Public Radio Exchange under its own name and as a regular contributor to the weekly series Sprouts: Radio from the Grassroots on public radio stations around the country.  OutCasting Overtime is also on Pacifica and PRX and is featured regularly on the program This Way Out, carried on more than 200 stations.

 SUPPORT — Individual contributions are our main source of support, so  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.
