OutCasting, public radio's groundbreaking LGBTQ youth program, is produced monthly 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 broadcast program, and shorter OutCasting Overtime pieces.  Each comes out monthly.

 

MISSION — MFPG's mission is to give a national voice to LGBTQ youth, train a new generation of media activists, and contribute 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.

        • Michigan State University.  If you're a student at Michigan State or nearby, please read our MSU Bureau page and then contact us.

NEW BOARD MEMBERS — We are looking for highly qualified people to join MFPG's Board of Directors.  Ideal candidates should have previous non-profit board experience, willingness and preferably experience in non-profit fundraising, and a strong and supportive interest in LGBTQ issues.  It's not necessary for you to be physically located in the New York area.  Please read more and then contact us if you're interested in applying.
