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.
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.
